Donal Jolley’s Passion for the Southwest - Western Travel Magazine | News | Rodeos | History | Towns | Old West | New West

oldwestnewwest.com [cached]

Jolley's father, Donal Jones Jolley, was the first chief ranger for Zion National Park. Donal Jones Jolley (Donal is a family name) started working in Zion in 1919, finally leaving Zion in 1943 when the park service moved him to Lake Meade National Recreation Center.

...
During his career as an artist, Jolley has painted hundreds of images of the Southwest, ranging from detailed acrylics or oils of historic trains and cowboys and Indians to abstract watercolors of landscapes, farms and barns.
...
On display in his studio for visitors to see (and maybe to purchase) are both framed and unframed paintings and watercolors, although Jolley now mostly works in watercolors. Visitors are welcome to stop by, but should call first. He has been painting full time in his home-studio in Rimforest since 1970.
Now 80 years old, Jolley attended Brigham Young University where he graduated as an art major. A brief time serving in the Army took him to Germany in the 1950s. Returning to civilian life, he found a job as an illustrator for the Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, California and freelanced for Rod & Custom magazine. His interest in art originally was piqued by a high school art teacher who favored working in watercolor and pastels.
...
Jolley's met many artists who shared similar passions about the Southwest, including Native Americans.
"I remember meeting a Navajo artist one time around Canyon de Chelly (National Monument)," he recalled. "We talked, but I wished I could have had more time with him. Looking back, Jolley said he would have liked to have learned more about the artist's feelings for the country. Other favorite places for Jolley include the area around Monument Valley between Arizona and Utah, and its pinnacles of rock, surrounded by mesas and buttes, and the Virgin River and its tributaries.
Jolley's credentials as a Southwestern artist are lengthy. He is a member of the National Watercolor Society and Watercolor West. He has been featured in Southwest Art, Contemporary Western Artists, Who's Who in American Art, Camera Life, Inland Empire Magazine and others. His work is in the collections of the Church Museum of History and Art in Salt Lake City, the San Bernardino County Museum, and the Smithsonian.
"Life has been very good to me," he added.
