Cottonwood Art Festival’s 2011 featured artist is Jarrod Eastman of Bozeman, MT. His paintings are infused with motion, music, and color, and often walk the fine line between reality, fantasy and the surreal. Mr. Eastman’s art has been shaped by subcultures such as skateboarding, punk, jazz, hip-hop music and a lifestyle centered in the mountains.
