Raised in a ranching family in rural Nevada, after high school, Gina Teichert struck out to find a path in the fashion industry. Represented by Ford Models, she would go on to work for blue chip brands like Levis, Harley Davidson, Indian Motorcycles, and Stetson. These experiences would, incidentally, bring her back to her roots in the West.

Teichert studied painting at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and shows in spaces that support artists who walk in two worlds. Like many, Teichert found a way to recalibrate her art practice during the pandemic, participating in two virtual exhibitions with Western Gallery and Year of Solitude, an online round table organized by her fellow San Francisco Museum of Modern Art alumni (where she previously served as a guide).

Teichert’s work has been shown at the de Young Museum, Northeastern Nevada Museum, and AT&T Park. Her piece “Outerlands” was acquired by Alaska Airlines in 2018 and is currently on view at San Francisco International Airport. A group show at Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum (through April 17th) marks her first in-person exhibition since the pandemic.


“This new body of work synthesizes three of my favorite subjects – fashion, desert landscapes, and the women of the West. Oh, and who could forget snakes? Remind me to tell you about how much I love snakes one of these days . . . But I digress. Or maybe I don’t. This series is all about strength, resilience, and an unvarnished view of life in the West.” – Gina Teichert
