Walter Crew

I am an active painter, painting most every day. I have been painting for about 17 years and I exhibit mostly in our local area here in Contra Costa County. I belong to four Art groups and I am Co-president of "Las Juntas Artists" in Pleasant Hill.

I have my paintings in different locations throughout our area, Pleasant Hill library, Diablo Valley College, where I have three paintings in their permanent collection and I have had solo shows there in Feb 2010 and January 2014. I also exhibit in Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek. My paintings are in different mediums, acrylic & acrylic collage, oils, scratchboard, watercolors and pastels and I am always trying new things.

I have been taking all of the painting classes at Diablo Valley College that I can take over the years as well as the Pleasant Hill Adults Art & Painting classes where I have my Fine Art certificate. I also do demos for local art groups on occasion and. I will continue to paint each day — it is my "therapy".
