Biography


 
Gary’s recent work has been recognized in Society of Washington Spring Art Shows. Nine-Eleven won 1st place in 2019 and previewed during the opening of Vancouver’s Cave Gallery which focuses on experimental contemporary art by local artists.  Journey picked up a 2019 award from the Jack Richeson Art Company during the same show, and Hiding in the Scraps placed 3rd in 2017 in the category of water based media.
 
Always a storyteller, Gary wrote three novels between 2005 and 2016. Leaving the Bones Behind, Gabriel's Covenant and Mercy in Masquerade are all currently available -- on Amazon. 
 
In 2015 he set his pen aside, found a group of talented artists and began to paint. To his surprise the art forms melded. Storytelling, the fictional kind, threaded them. With an abundance of curiosity, little fear, and a willingness to let intuition guide each stroke and choice of color he embarked on this new adventure with the help and guidance of many other local artists. His artwork often presents a simple story using a limited pallet of colors, telling just enough — an “entree” — that hopefully leads viewers to add their own “desserts”. Each painting extends his experiment with mixed water-based media and methods of application. He is now sharing aspects of his approach with other artists. He was guest painter in two Clark College classes in Vancouver, Washington in 2019.  
 
Recent art shows include: 2016 and 2017 Arts of Clark County Open Studio Tours, two 2017 Spring shows sponsored by the Battleground Art Alliance in Battleground, Washington and the Society of Washington Artists Spring Show in 2017 and 2019. His art started showing in The Camas Gallery in 2017 after a show —“Art for the Life of Elephants” — at the Second Story Gallery on the Second Floor of the Camas Public Library.  “Touch of Red”, a twelve piece exhibition of his latest work, opened at The Camas Gallery on 4th Avenue [...]
