As part of the monthly West Seattle Artwalk, there will be a reception at Alki Arts Gallery this Thursday, February 9, 2012 for my highly talented artist friend, Robert Blehert. Some of you may remember him as the artist who painted the awesome portraits of my cat Kiya and dog Puma as shown in previous post Expressions of Cat and Dog.
I met Seattle-based artist Robert Blehert several years ago, and its been fun watching his painting style evolve. Originally classically trained, these days his style is more lively—reminiscent of something a bold Impressionist might create while fueled by Seattle coffee.
His paintings of professional sports stars are vibrant, exciting and different, and his work has used by the Minnesota Twins for their promotional materials. Robert’s sports art has been commissioned for quite a few major league teams, and is being collected by many professional athletes.
Not interested in sports? There are many more great pieces in all types of mediums to see at Alki Arts, and talented jazz singer Elise Kloter will also be performing live. Hope to see you there!
