“At last I shall give myself to the desert again, that I am its golden dust,” wrote western artist Maynard Dixon. The desert was Dixon’s first love, as evidenced by his work. Dixon painted western life for over 50 years. Through paintings, murals, drawings and illustrations he epitomized the beauty and grandeur of its deserts, mountains, canyons and valleys and recorded the life of its Indians and settlers. He dedicated his life and art to celebrate the American West. When the famed artist sought serenity in 1939, it was in Mt. Carmel where Dixon settled. He and wife Edith Hamlin built a summer home and studio in a peaceful setting among cottonwood trees and along a stream running through a verdant meadow. The couple’s dream was to create a peaceful place where they could work on their art, and invite artist friends to partake in the beauty of the Utah landscape. The Maynard Dixon Home and Studio is committed to Dixon’s original goal of fostering a new generation of artistic creativity. Tours are scheduled daily. The Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts is a non-profit foundation whose mission includes the preservation and maintenance of the Dixon home and property in Mt. Carmel. The Bingham Gallery, also on the property, features incredible works of art from Maynard Dixon, Jack Hillers and others. Maynard Dixon Country 2014 is September 5-7.

Bingham Galley's new building in Mt. Carmel is also home to the Thunderbird Foundation. Paul Bingham hopes that the property will eventually be the site of a Maynard Dixon Museum.
