TOM SHERWOOD: A GOLDEN PERSPECTIVE

February 5, 2015; Bellingham, WA--A show featuring the work of Bellingham artist Tom Sherwood opens March 7 and runs through June 14 at the Whatcom Museum Lightcatcher galleries, 250 Flora Street in Bellingham, WA.

Sherwood — artist, philosopher, theologian, mentor, poet— is regularly described by his friends and colleagues as "a Renaissance man." That his mastery of materials and techniques define Renaissance art — egg tempera and gold leaf on wood panel, perspective and anatomy — only reinforces their view of a "man that can do all things if he will." 

Sherwood's mastery also, as Curator of Art Barbara Matilsky notes, "elevates his work to a spiritual dimension," which in turn speaks to Sherwood’s lifelong study of philosophy, theology, art history, literature and mythology. Sherwood holds a BA in English literature from William Jewell College (1958), and an MA in Theological Literary Criticism from the University of Chicago (1961), with further master’s work in philosophical theology.

Based in Bellingham since 1970, when he became Assistant Professor of interdisciplinary arts at Fairhaven College (Western Washington University), Sherwood has traveled and taught art at colleges and universities in the United States and China. Tom Sherwood: A Golden Perspective explores one distinct body of the artist's work since 1992, when he began focusing full time on his artistic productions.
