Mike Wise
Mike Wise is an Impressionist oil painter best known for his landscapes. His approach to representational art is based in abstract design with loose brushwork and extensive use of palette knife to add broad strokes and sculptural smears to the canvas. The intended result is a painting with movement and energy, rich in color, texture, and a distinct three-dimensional feel that draws the viewer deep into the painted image. Mike has studied under several prominent painters but is primarily self-taught. The rugged coastlines, vast deserts and grand mountain ranges of the Western United States provide endless inspiration for his landscapes. He works in what was once an old barn on the family property that he converted to a modern art studio. His creative process is further influenced by the natural beauty that surrounds him at home on Whidbey Island. Mike enjoys working with his family nearby and a lot of good music playing in the studio while he paints. Wise is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America (OPA) and a member of the American Impressionist Society (AIS). His work has been featured in the following recent and upcoming exhibitions: Exhibitions 2015 Yellowstone Art Museum 47th Annual Art Auction, Billings, Montana 2015 Old Traditions / New Frontiers Art Show, Abend Gallery, Denver, Colorado 2014 'Introducing Mike Wise ~ Northwest Impressionism', Cole Gallery, Edmonds, Washington 2014 Contemporary Masters Show, Fredericksburg Art Gallery, Fredericksburg, Texas 2014 American Impressionist Society National Exhibition, Denver, Colorado 2014 OPA National Exhibition of Traditional Oils, Bennington, Vermont 2014 Taos Art Museum at Fechin House Benefit Auction, Taos New Mexico 2014 OPA Western Regional Exhibition, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California 2014 Couer d'Alene Art Galleries Miniatures by the Lake, Couer d'Alene, Idaho 2014 Howard/Mandville Gallery Invitational Small Works Show, Kirkland, Washington 2014 Museum of Northwest Arts and Culture Annual Benefit Show, Spokane, WA 2014 Spokane Valley Arts Council Annual Benefit Show, Spokane, WA 2014 Hockaday Museum Benefit Auction of Miniatures, Kallispell, Montana 2014 Paint the Peninsula Juried Plein Air event, Port Angeles, Washington 2014 Arts at the Port Annual Juried Exhibition, Anacortes, Washington 2014 Whidbey Expressions Benefit Art Show, Coupeville, Washington 2014 Art of the West Art Exhibit, High Desert Museum, Bend, Oregon 2013 OPA National Exhibition of Traditional Oils in Fredericksburg, Texas 2013 OPA Juried Salon Show in Petoskey, Michigan 2013 Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, Spokane, Washington 2012 OPA National Exhibition of Traditional Oils in Evergreen, Colorado 2012 OPA Western Regional Exhibition in Denver, Colorado 2012 CM Russell Museum / Masters Art Show and Auction in Great Falls Montana 2012 Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, Spokane, Washington 2008 Clymer Museum Two Man Show, Ellensburg, Washington 2007 National Museum of Wildlife Out of the Box Auction, Jackson Hole, Wyoming Awards 2014 Paint the Peninsula Plein Air Invitational Sponsors Award, Port Angeles, Washington 2014 Paint the Peninsula Plein Air Invitational Honorable Mention Award, Port Angeles, Washinton 2012 Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture Best of Show Spokane, Washington 2008 Best of Show Whidbey Island Plein Air Painters Open 2007 & 2008 Best of Show Ellensburg National Western Art Show 2006 Juror’s Choice award Whidbey Island Plein Air Painters Open
