Featured Artists



Painters  Ken DeRoux and Garreth Schuh are featured in October at the Burien Arts Gallery.

The opening reception is Friday, October 7 from 5-8 PM at the Gallery, 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien. All are invited.

DeRoux graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1969 with a BFA in photography/film. He managed the Canyon Cinema Filmmakers’Cooperative in the early 1970s and later was film curator at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Returning to his hometown of Juneau, Alaska, in 1978, he became curator at the Alaska State Museum and began to paint. His works have been displayed at many galleries in Alaska and Seattle.

Ken’s primary medium is oil. His focus has recently shifted from abstraction and landscapes to more narrative themes.

Schuh studied Architecture at the University of Washington and worked in that field in Seattle before earning an MA in Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania.  A number of large museum projects followed.  Back in Seattle, he worked on large residences and commercial and civic projects with large firms. He currently maintains a small practice focused  on new or remodeled residences, small commercial projects, and disability-related design and advocacy.

Inspired by his grandmother, Garreth started painting in the 1990s. The paintings on display are architectural landscapes abstracted from dilapidated buildings in Eastern Washington’s Palouse country and the American West.  He works mainly in oil.

Works by photographers Tom Fletcher and Chris Gonvers  will be on display in the Artists United room at the Gallery this month.
