  John L. Harter

(John Harter was found dead in his cottage on June 4, 2008)


John Harter is a painter. He was born in Seattle, Washington, in 1940.

John Harter served time in the navy and got locked down by maniacs with Jesse Bernstein; Steven J. to some of you; Seattle's now-gone quintessential street poet.

John Harter lives and paints on a wooded parcel of land on a Native-American reservation near Marysville, Washington. He's been there for a spell. It's a magic, wild, fiercely independent stronghold. John Harter is all those things himself.

John Harter is an artist with immense talent but no talent for playing the hokey-pokey with the Art World; hence, he has been rendered a non-person in that world. What else is new?

I've got a list of shows stretching from 1965 into the late 90s, when they started locking John out--locked down and then locked out; I'm not going to give those galleries the respect of listing their names. The list of shows doesn't tell you anything about who John Harter is, nor does it tell you anything about the quality of his art. Cut out the middle man. Go to the source.

Here are 57 paintings to feast your eyes on, done in acrylic on canvas over wood backing and strip-framed; selling for $500 each plus shipping costs.
