Bruce McCombs: City Journeys
On view through November 6, 2022
Muskegon Museum of Art
Muskegon, Michigan

Bruce McCombs is a West Michigan artist who creates stunning large-scale and highly rendered watercolor paintings of cityscapes. His works push the boundaries of the watercolor medium to a scale rarely practiced by contemporary watercolor artists.

“City Journeys” is a visual record of McCombs’ travels through urban landscapes. The watercolor paintings, which have been several years in the making, will now be presented to the public for the first time.

Originally trained as a printmaker, McCombs is now an accomplished watercolor painter. His works can be found in major U.S. collections, including those of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. McCombs was a professor of art at Hope College in Holland, MI from 1969-2021. He holds a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and an MFA from Tulane University.
