Paintings by Gregory Kammer at the Inn at Lynden

June 19 – October 11, 2021

The Jansen Art Center is pleased to welcome Gregory Kammer to the Inn at Lynden for an exhibit of his work. The exhibit opens on June 19 and will be on display through October 11, 2021.

Artist Statement

I have a passionate curiosity about my subjects and a desire to create distinctive compositions that are unique to the Pacific Northwest. Painting, for me, is an emotional experience. Spend close time with these paintings, feel the gentle breeze over a patch of Meadow Mallow against a weathered oyster house, experience the radiance of massive buildings, red and rising high above the docks where tuna fishermen ice up before heading out to sea, sense the warmth in the translucent glow of towering silos bathed in the late afternoon sun, and never mind the chill of the early spring air in the graceful shadow that gently falls over a rooftop beekeeper tending his bees.
