Gunnar Nordstrom to show 'Shadows on the American Landscape'

Liang Wei's "Shadows on the American Landscape" will be shown through October 11 at the Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery in Bellevue.

Moody, thoughtful and alluring are a few words that are frequently used to describe the paintings of Liang Wei as he wanders the West Coast of the United States capturing landscapes and western culture.

He has been influenced by Americana and artists, Edward Hopper, Grant Wood and Northwest contemporary Susan Bennerstrom. His exploration of landscape painting is defined by creating mood rather than fact in combining intellect and emotion.

Not a realist, not a Naturalist and not an Impressionist, Wei is a “Moodist.” A Northwest contemporary painter, Liang Wei has lived, painted and embraced the Pacific Northwest as home since 1988.

The gallery is located at 800 Bellevue Way N.E., #111. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
