Tom Hausken :: Siskiyou Painting, oil paintings
The work of Tom Hausken will be exhibited throughout the month of July. Tom is an oil painter who works and re-works his surfaces, allowing for flaws, erasures and concealments as necessary. The colors and forms in the series, Siskiyou Painting are abstracts of the landscape. Avoiding details that would imply a specific place, Hausken portrays a sense of place through paint. Join us for a reception for the artist Friday, July 6th, 5-8 pm. Show runs July 5th – 31st.

He was the Artist in Residence at the Yakima Valley Museum in 2017. His paintings are rich with texture and layering. His paintings are fundamentally grounded in landscape forms and colors yet he avoids including details that would infer a specific place. Instead they invoke a sense of place in paint.
