Newsletter September 2022

It has been a hectic yet very satisfying year so far. Five years into my life as a full-time artist, I am feeling exhilarated and confident – both as to what I have accomplished and what I have planned for the next five years.

I organized two solo exhibitions of new landscape paintings, one in Seattle and one in Vancouver.

Nocturnes IV

Installation view of Nocturnes IV – Return to Elliott Bay at Gallery 110, Seattle, May 2022. My wife, Lyne Filatrault, MD of PoPBC wishes readers to note the large, home-built air purifier “Corsi-Rosenthal box” in the foreground.

Selected pieces of my work are now in two commercial galleries, the Tofino Gallery of Contemporary Art and the Berkano Gallery at the Labor Temple Building in Seattle.

My artist collective in Seattle, Gallery 110 has had a remarkably successful 2022, relaunching our Emerging Artist Program and manning a highly complimented booth at the Seattle Art Fair in July.

Berkano Gallery in Seattle’s Labor Temple; Tofino Gallery of Contemporary Art; Michael Abraham and me carrying work from the Seattle Art Fair back to Gallery 110. The painting (sold) is by Bonnie Hopper, a new emerging artist member of Gallery 110.

I have “rolled the bones”, renting a large studio space in East Vancouver which will allow me to paint and display large works as well as informally exhibit smaller paintings to visiting friends and art patrons by appointment. Cappuccino, anyone? Perhaps a glass of Syrah?

Visual Space Gallery
3352 Dunbar Street (between 17th & 18th on the east side of Dunbar)
September 15 – 28, 2022
Noon – 5PM daily; extended hours to 8PM Tuesdays & Fridays

This show combines what might have been three small exhibitions:
•Nocturnes of Elliott Bay (Seattle)
•Views of storm-tossed waves off the beaches of Tofino & Ucluelet
•Still life paintings of fish markets in Spain & Southern France.

Please come, but please, let us be safe! I will be assuming that you are vaccinated, that you are well, and that you will wear a N95 mask while inside the gallery (I’ll have extras). I will have air purifiers on ‘turbo’, and will keep doors open to facilitate flow. Weather permitting, we can visit outside the gallery without masks.

It is still too soon to hold a reception – too many people in too small a space. But I will have coffee, tea, wine and other refreshments for your visit. Drop-ins will be welcome – maximum 10 people at a time in the Gallery. I will schedule visits to encourage a spacing out of visitors. Please email me ( and let me know the day & time you wish to come.

It has been a long time! I am looking forward to catching up on all of your news and planned future adventures.
