Artist Information from Askart.com:
Born in Spokane, Washington, in 1905, Kenneth Callahan was a self-taught painter and sculptor known for his abstractions based on natural forms of the Northwest region. His designs were often based on cross-sections of local stones and other formations. Some of his work from his "Voyages" series, showing automatist techniques, can be found at the Hallie Ford Museum in Salem, Oregon.
In 1927, he went to sea, and from 1929 was based in Seattle. From 1930, he began making trips to Mexico, Central America, and then traveled to Europe in the 1950s. From 1932 to 1946, he was a curator at the Seattle Art Museum and also was a visiting artist to numerous universities.
He taught privately and as a visiting artist at several institutes in the United States. Among his commissions are murals in the Marine Hospital in Seattle, post offices in Centralia and Anacortes, Washington, and the Washington State Library in Olympia. Callahan was a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship (1954).
He was a member of the Washington State Arts Commission and the Puget Sound Group. By 1926, he was exhibiting in San Francisco followed by exhibitions in Seattle, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Pennsylvania Academy, and the Corcoran Gallery.
His works can be found in collections at the Chicago Art Institute, University of Michigan, University of Nebraska, Washington State University, University of Washington, Seattle Art Museum, and the Portland Art Museum.
