Peter Scherrer will present a new body of paintings within a site-specific tent structure that relates to historical themes of the Pacific Northwest. His subject matter encompasses homesteaders, miners, loggers and hippies — all of whom have broken away from a dense society and created their own subgroup. For five weeks, Scherrer’s tent will be a place of escape down in Triple Base’s underground space. The installation is completed by paintings influenced by Pacific Northwest artists such as Emily Carr, Guy Anderson, Bruce Bickford, Elizabeth Colburn and Darius Kinsey.

Peter Scherrer is a painter/sculpture/printmaker currently living and working in Bellingham, Washington. He has been painting since he was 10 years old. Since graduating with a BFA from California College of the Arts in 2005, he moved back to his hometown of Bellingham where he lives in a cabin with his three year-old son. He is influenced by his rich natural surroundings as well as the culture and counterculture of the Pacific Northwest.
