Join us at Grovewood Gallery on Saturday, October 19 from 2 – 5pm for the opening of Landscapes of Southern Appalachia, a solo exhibition of work by contemporary landscape painter Shawn Krueger. This event is free and open to the public. The show will remain on view through Tuesday, December 31, 2019.

Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Shawn Krueger received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Calvin College in the late 90s. His approach to painting is rooted in the American Arts & Crafts and Tonalist traditions – both based on love and respect for nature, hand-craftsmanship, and good design. Landscapes of Southern Appalachia will feature studio works from plein air studies Krueger did on his recent travels in and around Western North Carolina.

In addition to Grovewood Gallery, Krueger also showcases his work at the National Arts and Crafts Conference each February at The Omni Grove Park Inn. In 2016, he was juried into the highly reputable Roycrofters-at-Large Association (RALA), whose mission is “educating, fostering and inspiring through the continual evolution of the Arts and Crafts Movement.” As of 2019, he is also a signature member of the American Tonalist Society (ATS).
