Lifting Up From The River
April 1–May 1
Traver Gallery is pleased to present our newest exhibition by Preston Singletary, Lifting Up From The River. This exhibition, dedicated to Preston’s father, Preston Singletary Sr. who passed away on November 4th, 2020, at the age of 80, is a deeply poignant and personal exploration of their relationship. We are incredibly proud to share this important exhibition with you, our collectors, and friends.
Preston says of this exhibition:
“This show is dedicated to my father Preston Singletary Sr. He retired from Boeing after close to forty years and focused on his passions of the outdoors; from mountain climbing, snow and rock climbing to telemark skiing. He was a marathon runner in his early days and dabbled in random artistic endeavors. I remember him painting and carving soapstone. He played Delta blues and folk music on the guitar, and was a fan of classical and jazz music.
He was a voracious reader and a stickler for facts and correct details. History and political science were among his interests, as well as poetry. He had a reputation as a fly fisherman through his writings for fly tying magazines and traveled locally to conduct fly tying workshops and lecture on sport fishing in the Northwest. My father and I were often confused for each other because we had the same name.
With this show, I’m trying to process how I understand my father and celebrate his connection to nature, while mythologizing his activities and celebrating his life.”
