An Exhibition of Works by John Hawkins

On January 2018,  2nd – 31st, I will show 10 Pastel works at The Letter Streets Coffeehouse, 1001 Dupont St. in Bellingham, Washington.

A Reception with the artist, that is me, will be held on Saturday, January 27th from 2 to 5 pm.

Many of you did not know I was an artist for several decades before I arrived in Bellingham. In the year 2000 I was in a show with two other artists, Greg Benson and Peter Loose. It was called “Birds of a Feather” and was held at a city museum in Athens, Georgia, The Lyndon House Art Center. It was then I stop painting.

I had a box of drawings I brought up here to Bellingham and would look at them from time to time. Then in October 2016, I started making art again first using those drawings. The work below was started in the 1990s and completed in 2016. It was the first painting I worked on after my hiatus. It is entitled “Saturn, God of Melancholy”. I am thrilled to find art again. I guess I was painting all along, in my head.

Please join us for coffee, tea, and art.
