Painter Calvin Grimm: an exhibit


Abstract expressionist painter Calvin Grimm pours everything into his paintings—his emotions, his life experiences, and particularly his love and respect for nature. Though there are few recognizable forms in his paintings, it is not just abstract ideas he represents in oils. It can be something so specific as the image of oil-soaked wildlife trying to flee the aftermath of the Exxon Valdez and BP oil spills.

Here’s a short tour of three of his works.

Supporting Calvin means supporting an artist who is giving the world more than just wonderful painting. He spent decades of his life working to raise awareness and concern for our natural environment and the damage which we humans do to it. Don’t miss Samantha Pack’s article about Calvin, where he talks about his art and his beliefs about conservation. Or go enjoy the on-camera interview.
