Brunette Mix March Artist Matthew McKern

Artist: J. Matthew McKern

Bio: “My goal has always been to capture the power of the fleeting glimpse. What one sees out of the corner of one’s eye is the foundation the imagination builds upon.
My influences are as diverse as the works themselves. The Northwest holds a surprising variety of artists and styles. Perhaps even more surprising is the number of artists working here in Walla Walla. Like many artists living here in our small town, I worked for a time at the Walla Walla Foundry, where I was able to view and participate in the creation of works by Jim Dine, Debbie Butterfield and Roy Lichtenstein, among others. I am particularly thankful to Mark Anderson for the opportunities his vision has provided for so many of us.”
