Shawn Krueger
Shawn Krueger, born 1973, is a contemporary landscape painter whose work sits comfortably in both the American Tonalist and Arts & Crafts traditions. Shawn received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Calvin College in 1998, studying under Chris Stoffel Overvoorde. Upon graduation, he traveled frequently to the UK and painted in nearly every corner of Great Britain. Over the course of his career, Krueger has shown his landscape paintings with a variety of galleries around the United States. In 2016, Krueger first juried into the highly reputable Roycroft Artisan Guild (RALA) based in East Aurora, NY. Shawn's work has garnered a number of awards over the years and his pieces are in dozens of private collections as well as in the permanent collections of the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Gilda's Club of GR, Calvin College and the Bissell Corporation. The artist's continuing focus in his studio and plein air work has been to identify the poetry within a given landscape while seeking to discover a sense of his own place within it.
