On Tuesday April 9, 2013, Joseph Gallivan interviews painter Seth Tane.
Tane is a realist painter who depicts industrial maritime scenes (oil tankers, large ships, tugs etc), as well as street scenes from San Francisco and New York. Tane has a fascinating background which includes shipping heavy sculptures for New York sculptors such as Mark Di Suvero in the 1970s, captaining ships, manufacturing tugboat pilothouses and running a marine salvage business in the waters around Portland.
His current show is called "New York : New Work" and runs March 15 - April 13, 2013, at the Victory Gallery, 929 NW Flanders, Portland. For more information see http://www.sethtane.com/about.html
