ALDEN MASON

Alden Mason’s artwork spans a range of styles and approaches. Mason continued his explorations with paint throughout his career, and allowed his work to evolve and shift. Although his "Burpee Series" oil paintings gained him the most attention, Mason was prolific in acrylic on canvas, on paper, and in other media. Gestural and narrative, much of Mason’s work features loose, abstracted figures, with foreground and background melding. Mason taught painting at the University of Washington for over 30 years, while maintaining his artistic practice and painting daily.

Alden Mason earned BFA and MFA degrees from the University of Washington, Seattle. His first solo exhibition occurred in 1946 at Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA. His work was shown extensively, including at Boise Art Museum, Boise, ID; Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO; Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA; Whatcom Museum, Bellingham, WA; and San Jose Museum of Art, San Jose, CA. His paintings are part of dozens of Museum and University collections including those of San Francisco Museum of Art, San Francisco, CA; Portland Art Museum, Portland, OR; Chicago Art Institute, Chicago, IL; and Bellevue Art Museum, Bellevue WA.

Alden Mason passed away in February, 2013. He was 93.
