Whisk yourself back to a time and place where the wild frontier was teeming with the simplicity of life and the pioneering spirit.


The Clymer Museum of Art showcases that spirit through the unforgettable career of the late Ellensburg artist, John Ford Clymer

whose historically accurate paintings and illustrations have captured the true essence of early Western America.

John Clymer: 1907-1989



“Although I have been painting for more than fifty years, each year becomes more exciting for me thanthe one before. Only a small part of the epic story of our Western frontier has been recorded and it is my ambition to make a truthful contribution to that record in my paintings.”
