    Richard Gilkey (1925-1997) became one of the most acclaimed painters in the Pacific Northwest. He was particularly well known for his landscapes depicting the Skagit Valley in Western Washington. After seeing works by Guy Anderson, Morris Graves, and Mark Tobey, Gilkey took up painting himself.

    Gilkey received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1958, and spent a year traveling and studying in Europe. He had a chance encounter with Picasso there; they spent an afternoon together talking about painting. Upon return, Gilkey painted outdoors, as he was not interested in Abstract Expressionism or Pop Art. He painted the Skagit Valley, where he had grown up, his home.

    In 1982, Gilkey's work was included in a show of Pacific Northwest artists at Osaka's National Museum of Art,In 1990, he was selected to receive the Washington State Governor’s Art Award. In 1990, Gilkey was named the grand prize winner of the Osaka Triennale, a juried competition of 30,000 entries from 60 countries.

    In 1997, Gilkey’s health had deteriorated and he had been diagnosed with lung cancer. He drove to the Grand Tetons in Wyoming with his revolver and shot himself. He left a note behind: “This is the chief thing: Be not perturbed, for all things are according to the nature of the Universal, and in a little time you will be no one and nowhere,” from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.
