Wilson, WY resident A.A. Zvegintzov, locally known as Sandy Z, moved to Jackson Hole over 35 years ago from Philadelphia, PA.  He came to the valley as the financial officer of the Jackson Hole Ski Corp. and then returned to the law and practiced for many years, both as a private attorney and also as the deputy County Prosecuting Attorney.

 In the midst of single-parenting his two young sons he started his course of “Downward Mobility” and became a professional river guide, ski instructor, sailor and, for the last several years, a full-time artist.  Sandy started art over 20 years ago with self-instruction. He then took Sandy Zseveral local art classes, eventually went to the University of Wyoming art school for a second bachelor’s degree and now continues his training and education with regular workshops. 

Sandy’s woodcuts were shown at Trailside Galleries and his oil paintings at Shadow Mountain Gallery, both in the town of Jackson. He has had five one-man shows and been in several multi-person shows in the valley.  He has won local and state-wide awards and has taught several Art Association painting classes. 

Sandy’s focus is the challenge of plein air (on location) landscape oil painting.  Bad weather or cold winter days will find him in the studio making larger works from his field paintings.  He finds an endless variety of subjects, both intimate and grand, right in the valley and two adjoining National Parks.  Philadelphia and nearby the countryside are also favorite venues.
