Featured Artist: Gary Wahlbeck of Wahlbeck Creations
About the Artist:
Gary Wahlbeck was born in Winnipeg, Canada on September 29th, 1958, the son of Carlo and Barbro Wahlbeck. His father is a well-known Swedish born artist, and had exposed Gary to the world of fine art at a very early age. Gary’s passionate quest for knowledge of all things has led him into many trades, which have all contributed to a never-ending list of mediums in which to work.
Gary has worked professionally in many technical and creative fields over the last 30 years. He is a highly detailed painter and sculptor and expresses his creativity with metal, silver and goldsmith work, mold-making, resin casting, stained and leaded glass, wrought iron work, wood and stone inlay and many other creative paths that present themselves.
Gary’s work has been displayed in fine art galleries across the United States, in cities such as Las Vegas, Nevada; Palm Springs, Los Angeles, and Lake Arrowhead, California; to name a few. His silver jewelry work was displayed and sold at the Palm Springs Desert Museum at a time when normally only Native American work was being accepted. Gary was a leading designer and engineer in the construction of a major outdoor steel sculpture located in Palm Springs at the junction of Indian Avenue and Interstate 10.
Several years ago Gary and his wife Brigitte, relocated from Southern California to Brookings, Oregon, and now more recently to Cannon Beach, Oregon where a new adventure unfolds and the beautiful landscape and people lend themselves to further inspiration.
