The Gentlemen of Northwest Art: Phillip Levine, Norman Lundin, and Gerard Tsutakawa
BAC brings together three of the Northwest’s most admired artists for one powerful exhibition.
Over a 50-year career, Phillip Levine has become best known for his figurative bronze work. He has installed and exhibited his expressive, dynamic sculptures in public spaces and in private collections throughout the West, including the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
Painter and teacher Norman Lundin has exhibited his drawings and paintings coast to coast. His figurative work and still lifes make the ordinary extraordinary; his landscapes put us lowly humans in full perspective. He’s currently the Gallery Director of Prographica Drawings in Seattle and a Professor Emeritus at the University of Washington.
Among other major public art works, Gerard Tsutakawa created the iconic bronze Mitt that greets visitors to Seattle’s Safeco Field. His elegant abstract bronze sculptures, which appear in numerous public and private collections, are inspired by the simplest, most beautiful forms in nature.
Be sure to join us for a free gallery talk by Phillip Levine from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Saturday, January 4. No registration is necessary – just stop in.
