Gordon Wilson at Marmot Art Space this First Friday



Gordon Wilson is the featured artist this month at Marshall Peterson's Marmot Art Space, 1202 West Summit Parkway in Kendall Yards. Gordon has taught generations of painters here in Spokane. As the chair of the Art Department at Whitworth University, he knows a thing or two about how to create great art.

Gordon has spent many a summer with his wife, Angelika, in the famed hilltowns of Tuscany and Umbria in Italy as well as towns in Germany and France. Together, they grab their brushes and easels and head out into the city to meet the locals and to paint in the town squares the scenes before them.

The Marmot also has works by Ric Gendron, Alfredo Arreguin and Ruben Trejo (both have work in The Smithsonian), Rick Davis, Jim Dhillon, Michael Dinning, Ken Roth and local favorite Melissa Cole.

First Friday's reception is May 4, 5-8pm. Get more details at marmotartspace.com. The phone number is 509-270-5804.
