Find the warmth of wool and lustrous wood in The Gallery at Sun Mountain Lodge this winter. Rick and Katie Swanson’s work is sensual and beautiful; Katie, the expert weaver in the family, creates lush rugs out of Pendleton wool, perfect for lining your home nest while Rick, master woodworker, makes gorgeous furniture. One of Rick’s natural-edged, walnut pieces will grace the walls at The Gallery along with his wife’s textiles.

The three painters in the winter show are interconnected through their deep affinity for nature. The Gallery’s co-curator Donna Keyser reveals some dramatic new mountain paintings. One of the Methow’s most celebrated painters, Rod Weagant, offers evocative winter scenes from around the valley. His paintings reflect his effort “to communicate the wonder he feels about our natural world”.

Michael Kirshner, self-taught and passionate landscape painter, has recently returned to art after 30 years as a healthcare professional, entrepreneur, and professor. Collectors loved his translations of the sultry, luminous summer world, so he’s back to immerse us in the glowing softness of winter.
