Our friend Stephanie Hargrave recently introduced us to Roger Shurtleff and we are so grateful! He is a really stand up guy, a solid artist and as a result of our introduction he is our featured artist for May. Roger tends to paint a series of pieces around a theme before changing out his brushes and paints to approach another idea or story. We checked out pieces from several of his series. I was struck by the way he is able to reference previous imagery but make it completely relevant in its new context. There is a graceful evolution about his paintings. We will have work from Ghostland. Flyover 16 x 16" We will also have his latest series, Tools of the Trade. Finisher 12 x 12" Join us for the West Seattle Artwalk, Thursday May 14 from 6 to 9pm. We'll open some bubbly, have some bites and chat with Roger. Oh...you can also do some shopping and perhaps even aquire one of Roger's paintings.
