Artists On The Street

Saturday, August 12 is the annual Artists On Huguenot Street event here in New Paltz.  Please plan on dropping by during the day to see me working on a plein air painting before your eyes.

I will also be hosting an Open Studio during the day, a rare opportunity to see paintings, sketches and prints you may not have seen featured in galleries.

“On Huguenot Street”, an 8 x10 piece (right) was completed earlier this week.  The above piece, “Summer Along The Oxbow”, is also 8 x 10 and depicts a view from a nature sanctuary here on the street.

The event is held from 10-4, rain or shine.

Painting Demonstration

Have you ever wondered how a simple snapshot, taken on a hike with a friend many years ago, becomes a full-scale romantic painting?  The photo seen here became1 the inspiration for “A Rose Colored Glow”, above.

Join me on Saturday, May 6th, when I will demonstrate my painting technique in a special event at the Mark Gruber Gallery in New Paltz, beginning at 5PM.  This is a rare opportunity to see an artist at work.  The gallery is located at 17 New Paltz Plaza, New Paltz, NY and can be reached at (845) 255-1241 for more information.

Opening Reception

Kevin is proud to announce that he will be featured at The Mark Gruber Gallery in New Paltz, NY in a two artist show.  The show runs from April 8 through May 20, 2017.  An opening reception will be held Saturday, April 8 at the gallery from 5-7 PM.

Kevin will have more than twenty new paintings on display, showing his signature romantic skies and Hudson Valley scenery.  A prime example is “In Wild Country”, seen above.

Hope to see you there!

The Cozy Season

Winter is the season for quiet reflection and rejuvenation.  Even as it comes to an end, there is the desire for one more day of hot tea, an engaging read, and time to collect one’s thoughts.  Kevin often finds winter to be his most creative time of the year.  Here is a detail of his recent painting, “The Artist’s Parlor”, suggesting the cozy introspection of the season.

As Seen On TV

This winter you can see Kevin’s paintings adorning the sets of two premium cable television shows.  Look for them in the first season finale of HBO’s Divorce, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church.  In addition, two of Kevin’s paintings (including “Rolling Hills Of Home”, above) adorn the dining room of character Chuck Rhoades, Sr on season two of Showtime’s Billions, starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis.  Happy viewing!

Paintings At Mohonk

It’s gouache season!  I have fourteen new gouache paintings on display at Mohonk Mountain House through the month of September.  This annual exhibit is in the rustic Barn Museum and features views of the Shawangunks.  Gouache paint is an opaque form of watercolor used by designers and illustrators.  These paintings are inspired by early twentieth century children’s book illustrations and by antique hand colored postcards.

If you’re going to be spending a day at Mohonk, be sure and stop by!
