Landscape Painting Demonstration with Shawn Krueger

  • Grovewood Gallery

Michigan-based artist Shawn Krueger will be demonstrating at Grovewood Gallery on Friday, July 14 from 11am - 4pm. Krueger is a contemporary landscape painter whose work sits comfortably in both the American Arts and Crafts and Tonalism movements. Traditional methods and an awareness of history are important to the artist. Krueger says "I consider myself a contemporary artist, by virtue of having breath and a pulse in the year 2017, but my approach to the work definitely hearkens back to Barbizon, to the Hudson River School and even the Dutch Masters." Mood and a sense of place are the primary areas of focus for Krueger in his painting, with the majority of his pieces begun outdoors, on-site.
