For the months of September and October, the paintings of Northwest artist Marshall Lysander Johnson will be featured at the Rosario mansion's gallery space.

Created at his Orcas studio near Doe Bay, the 210 oils and water colors are familiar scenes of Orcas, the San Juan Islands, and beyond.

Johnson's paintings convey the energy of the Northwest. The Federal Way artist's distinctive style is reflected in vibrant colors using palette knife and brush work.

A native of Bellingham, Johnson is a graduate of the University of Washington and the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. Many of his paintings have been reproduced as pen or limited edition prints. They can be viewed along with other available originals on his website

This award-wining artist has had many one-man shows. His work has appeared in Northwest and national juried and invitational shows. He has been a juror for several local art shows as well, most recently the "Tall Ships" show hosted by the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma.

Well-known private and corporate collectors of his art work include the Space Needle, Boeing Company, Foss Maritime, Qwest, First Interstate and Key Banks, St. Joseph's Hospital, Tacoma News Tribune and the United States Air Force at the Pentagon.

Johnson is an Artist-Member of the American Society of Marine Artists (ADMA) and a Life Member of the Northwest Watercolor Society.
