Meyer Gallery: Silas Thompson & Seth Winegar
March 29, 2019
Park City, UT – View new works by landscape painters Silas Thompson and Seth Winegar.
Silas Thompson was raised in Idaho. His passion for drawing and painting was instilled at an early age, fostered by his parents and manifest by the filling of countless sketchbooks and refrigerator magnets. Setting out on annual backpacking trips with his father, he began to treasure the distinct birthmarks and icons of beautiful rivers, valleys, and mountains that carve through the high desert and vast farmlands of the West.
His desire to create work that evokes a memory continues to be a driving force to push Silas to be innovative and to look for new ways to create the illusion of solidity, time, and emotion.
Seth Winegar, born in 1974 in Bountiful, is a talented young artist, dedicated to developing his innate skill by immersing himself in oil painting. Already established at an early age, Winegar is striving to improve his skills and understanding of art.
He has taken classes at Utah State University and studied with many accomplished painters including Michael Coleman, Zhang Wenxin, Sherrie McGraw and John Hughes. Winegar’s greatest influences have been Richard Schmidt, Nicoli Fetchin and Michael Coleman.
