He is a At age twenty-one, in the summer of 1974, aspiring artist Dave McNally drove into Jackson Hole from the south end of the valley. Pulled north by the mountains, he spent his first night at the base of the Teton Range, beneath a fiery sunset, and in that moment, decided Jackson was the place he was going to live and paint. The following year, he began his climbing career, with the first of over two hundred ascents of the Grand Teton. Returning every summer from his home in Chicago, he explored and painted Jackson Hole until 1980 when, having secured his first gallery representation here, he moved to the valley permanently. Residing in the Tetons ever since, he has also worked as Ski Patrol Director of Snow King Mountain and as an Exum Mountain Guide in Grand Teton National Park.
