A Passion for Painting

For the past 20 years Dr. John Fawcett (’78) has been pursuing a second dream. For the previous two decades, Fawcett was an equine and small animal veterinarian in Pennsylvania. While he had a passion for veterinary medicine, Fawcett also loved to draw and paint. That’s exactly what he has done since selling his veterinary practice in 1996. And his leap of faith has paid off. He has been invited to participate in some of the most prestigious Western art shows in the country and has his works displayed in galleries throughout the western United States including a 10th anniversary show at the Steamboat Art Museum in Steamboat Springs, Colo., December 2017 through April 2018.
