an organization of realist and figurative artists from the pacific northwest
Kurt Solmssen studied painting and fine art at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA. He moved to Vaughan, Washington with his family about two decades ago. He lives in an old beach house that has been in his family since 1964, and finds most of his inspiration and subjects from the waters of the Puget Sound and his immediate environment. One subject that he has returned to over the years is an iconic, yellow wooden boat that was built in 1933.
