Michael Dickter in his studio


A while ago I visited the studio oh painter,  Michael Dickter in the Studio C building in Ballard.  Great big airy old building, big beams and old floors.

I was stopping in to see Michael and the new work he is creating for his upcoming show at the gallery.

I think the graphic but the painterly qualities in his work are very unique to Michael.

His imagery is very transitory.. The intentional drips help to create the illusion of space and could even
be thought of as time signatures as in music.

I always look forward to seeing what new creatures will walk, fly or frolic in his mixed media paintings. I do see a moose!

The show opens Saturday, June 14.. should be fabulous.

About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
