David Kinker — Grand Escapes

For Tumalo Art Co.’s first solo show of 2023, David Kinker has created paintings of an epic year of adventure. “Grand Escapes” opens April 7, from 3-7pm during the Old Mill District’s First Friday Gallery Walk.


“In the Other World”, the colors of the changing light on a raft trip in Argentina.


In the fall of 2022 David took an 18-day raft trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon—for the 5th time. He then spent seven weeks in Chile and Argentina, including hiking and backpacking in Patagonia, and a two-week river expedition down the Rio Grande Colorado of Argentina.

“Patagonia Horizons” is an acrylic painting of the jagged peaks in the far southern hemisphere.


“As a personal practice of meditation I am driven to paint even on wilderness trips. I am emotionally moved by beauty and natural wonders and paint plein air on my trips as a way to be fully present in observation and the senses.” After arriving home, David dives back into the experience by creating large studio paintings in response to his connections to the places and people he meet, hoping to share his sense of wonder with others.

More information and photos or artwork to come as we get closer to the show!

“Daydreaming”, is an acrylic painting from David Kinker’s time floating the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River.
