Lee Kromschroeder at Pacific Flyway Gallery

We are excited to announce that in celebration of our 30th Anniversary, we are hosting nationally renowned wildlife artist Lee Kromschroeder. We are featuring Lee in the gallery Sat. March 28,  1pm to 4pm  for a meet and greet, where he will be signing prints and visiting with our guests. We will have originals and many of his prints on hand.

Lee Kromschroeder 


Stirring moods. Engaging action. Flirtatious light. The art of Lee Kromschroeder captures the imagination of the viewer and pulls him into the animated world of his canvas. "What I like to do is create a total environment for the animal. I feel everything in a painting is equally as important as the subject." Through exhaustive research of his subject's anatomy, behavior & habitat and continually challenging his skills, Kromschroeder has emerged as one of the most recognized and celebrated artists of the genre.

Celebrating 30 years in Business

This year marks a milestone of 30 years here at Spokane's Pacific Flyway Gallery.
Established by Mike Cochran in the original downtown Paulsen Building location in 1985, in later years on East Sprague Ave., and now in the wonderful new location on Dishman-Mica Road in Spokane Valley with owners Holly and Charles Swanson, Pacific Flyway Gallery has continued to grow. With a variety of art works by local, regional and nationally known artists, and the finest in framing services by Holly's Framing, the gallery has remained ever true in the mission of providing the Spokane area with the best in art and framing.
Holly & Charles Swanson
In celebrating our 30th year, we thought it would be a great opportunity to spotlight many of the the artists that have made this gallery great. Over the next year we will pay tribute to 30 artists over the 30 years with classic art as well as featuring their newest endeavors.
Today we continue to be an authorized dealer for many of the largest publishers of Limited Edition Art, with art works available from Greenwich Workshops, Mill Pond Press,Wild Wings, Sommerset House, Hadley House,  and others.
If you are a fan or collector of a particular artist from any of these publishers, let us know and we'll keep you updated on new works by these artists.


Spotlight on Robert Bateman:

One of the art world's most preeminent wildlife artists, Robert Bateman continues to be one of the most collected Limited Edition Portfolios of wildlife art.

Midnight Black Wolf
Since the early days of the gallery, Robert Bateman has been a perennial favorite, having had the pleasure of hosting Robert here in Spokane on numerous occasions, we have contributed in building his following here significantly over the years.

Robert Bateman
As in the past, we are proud to offer numerous pieces of his classic works as well as his most recent. We invite collectors to visit with us and allow us to show you what works are available.

Winter Run Bull Moose.

Spotlight on Terry Isaac:
Another of our most collected published artists is Terry Isaac.
As with Bateman, we have had the pleasure of featuring this artist personally at the gallery, and he has always been a big hit with our clientele. 


Rufus & Rhoadies
Terry has a delightful way with capturing the delicate nature of  birds in their environment with the mood and light subtleties.

Kindred Spirits
Terry's work covers a vast variety of subject matters in his story telling with the settings for his wildlife, one of the reasons for the  appeal to his ever growing following.

Rocky Trails
Terry speaks to many of the natural iconic subjects of our region, as in Rocky Trails. We'd love to show you what we have in house and what art works are currently available from Terry's portfolio.

We will continue to feature many of the artists that have contributed to our 30 successful years in Spokane in the weeks and months ahead. We will also be featuring a number of special events.
