M. F. Kotowski at Johns' Western Gallery

From: "Johns' Western Gallery"

Railfans will want to visit Johns' Western Gallery to see the locomotive paintings of Michael F. Kotowski. Kotowski's depictions of the great old engines are renowned for their technical accuracy and attention to setting. You may recognize Kotowski's work from one of Orchard Hardware Supply's railroad calendars, or from one of the limited art prints made of them. These are the original paintings, matted and framed and ready for hanging.
