Dan Abernathy: an artist and purveyor of words. Dan is well known for his art, and also as a writer. His voice, be it in his words or his art, is a collection of oddities, fascinations, and obsessions – a road map of sorts, tracking the life of a man that can’t and won’t fit in.
Dan’s art has vague borders and parameters, which gives him the freedom to create without restrictions. It is a derivative of his voice. His devotion to art continues to lead him all over the world to compose and share. For, “what best describes an artist is the same thing which describes an adventurer,” he writes. “The longing for something intense, grand, revolutionary, new horizons with different natural laws.”
In 2022 was presented with a Certificate of Excellence award at the 2022 Harvest Moon Art Festival in Granbury Texas and was also presented the 610 Arts Award for the most creative and innovative art at the 2022 Ridgeway Rendezvous Art Festival in Ridgeway, Colorado.
Since 1980, Abernathy’s home base has been Pinedale, Wyoming, but he is constantly on the road allowing his visual life to expand as he travels the globe, alert for new sights to capture and experience.
Dan has devoted his life to perceiving the world through capturing poignant images. He knowingly admits that not all sights and experiences have the same destination of exposing themselves.

Contributing to the Chaos
A Mandate To Living Life
Contributing to the Chaos is about contributing to life and living, with a carefree attitude filled with reckless abandonment; all while exuding calmness and compassion amidst the chaos. Our world is in a constant chaotic state, in this capacity of high confusion and disorder if we carefully look and listen beyond the pandemonium, we can hear the rumbling of the oncoming anarchy. This is a natural progression as we wait for the Plato and Socrates ending of the Philosopher King. So contributing to the chaos, with good, through many of my obscure facets, is in fact contribute to life. We must live life now, with the way of Mindfulness, as our future is truly; only tomorrow. This is the only way we can find some contentment and sense of who we are, in a world that is insensibly out of control.
