Barry Herem: Wood. Glass. Paper. Steel.


Wolf Pack Herem










Opening Reception: First Thursday April 6th, 6-8pm. This exhibit runs from April 6th-30th.

In April we present a solo exhibition for Pacific Northwest Coast designer and artist Barry Herem (Non-Indigenous) of corten steel sculptures inspired by the environment, mythology and animal life of the region. Herem renders the perfect curl of a fiddlehead fern, the palms of a welcome figure, or the snarl of a wolf in his elegant water-jet-cut steel panels.

Also in this show are rare serigraphs from the artist’s decades of print-making, including works from the 1970s, 80s, 90s and forward. Many clients have requested these works in the past, and we are pleased to be able to present the final editions from the series, straight from the artist’s personal archive.

Featured Works

Works on Paper

Between 1976 and 2000 Barry Herem completed about 50 limited edition prints and about a dozen works in cast paper. Most of the prints are serigraphs which are silk-screen prints done by the artist (and major partner Jim Hunziker). Some (noted) are lithographs and/or giclee prints. Cast paper is finely pulverized paper in a water mix that has been poured into a mold, pressed and allowed to dry, then sometimes painted and/or inset with shell as noted.

Important: the first ten of most of the serigraph work (usually in editions of 195 to 250) were set aside at the outset of the editions as special purchases, true also of Artist’s Proofs (AP’s) of which there are usually between 10 and 20 for each edition. Therefore, older works that are in this exhibition are generally very low numbers, and considered by some collectors to be more desirable because of that.
