Grovewood Gallery will present Landscapes of Southern Appalachia, a solo exhibition of work by painter Shawn Krueger, from October 19 - December 31, 2019. There will be a free opening reception on Saturday, October 19 from 2-5pm that gives the public an opportunity to meet the artist. Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Shawn Krueger received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Calvin College in the late 90s. His approach to painting is rooted in the American Arts & Crafts and Tonalist traditions – both based on love and respect for nature, hand-craftsmanship, and good design. Landscapes of Southern Appalachia will feature studio works from plein air studies Krueger did on his recent travels in and around Western North Carolina.
