Scott Milo Gallery presents a collection of Dederick Ward’s paintings from 1990 to Present.  The early paintings draw on Ward’s geological background, the internal and external landscapes of his adopted Washington State. Next was a long period of abstracted landscape and many plein air works executed in the field with fellow artists. The mountains, rivers, wetlands and agriculture were his passion and his subject matter. Also showing are oils by Brooke Borcherding, Damon Brown, Matt Dollahite and Melissa Jander.
