From October 8 to December 4, the Coos Art Museum will present Michael Ferguson: Landscape Journey 1992-2019. This solo show features works from three decades of Tacoma landscape art, Washington artist Michael Ferguson.
“As a native of the Northwest, it is no surprise that I am constantly influenced by our rich and varied landscape…. My approach to painting is fundamentally representative with a certain generous flexibility at times, ”Ferguson said. “A fractured multi-color approach can transform into a more controlled realism when needed. “
A free reception for the exhibition will take place on Friday October 8 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Ferguson is a graduate of the Burnley School of Art in Seattle, Washington and has exhibited solo at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle as well as at the North Central Washington Museum in Wenatchee, Washington. He has also had solo exhibitions in galleries in Tacoma, Portland and Seattle. Notable group exhibitions he has participated in have taken place at the Tacoma Art Museum, the Missoula Museum of the Art, and the Coos Art Museum. His works are part of numerous public and private collections across the Northwest.
