A Catalyst of Empathy by Tim Timmerman & Stan Peterson

Parrish Gallery

Mixed Media works by Tim Timmerman and wooden carvings by Stan Peterson explore narratives that speak with sincerity through a somewhat whimsical lens, striving as best as they are able to encounter the “other” with benevolence and generosity.

Stan Peterson

Always a walker, from his early days as a mail carrier in SE Portland, to travels far from home. Stan always remains on the lookout for “moments of significance” which tell a story. 

Stan has been exhibiting his carved and painted figures since 1981 when William Jamison gave him his first solo show in what was to be the Pearl.  Since then the work has been exhibited and collected nationally. He carves basswood with hand tools and uses a variety of colorants for finishing. The only power tool used is a bandsaw with the remaining cutoffs often becoming his handheld “rescue dogs”
