“The Stillness of Time,” an exhibit featuring recent evocative oil paintings of noted landscape artist Kevin Fitzgerald, opens on June 1 during Easton’s First Friday Gallery Walk at 5 p.m. The event will feature a talk by Kevin Fitzgerald beginning at 7 p.m. with refreshments and hors-d’oeuvres.
Kevin’s paintings are highly sought after and known for their timeless and ethereal quality. Kevin has a great reverence for the land and sea and fully expresses it in his tonalist paintings characterized by neutral hues, muted atmospheric tones, and mystery.
“Be brief, use the least to say the most. To gain the particular is to lose the infinite. Painting is a solitary communication and strives to go beyond words,” Kevin comments. Inspired by French mid 19th-century romantic landscape painters, Kevin’s paintings are evocative and spiritual. His fields of color are both suggestions and subtle depictions.
Kevin studied with Raoul Middleman at the Maryland Institute College of Art and pursued his M.F.A. under a full fellowship at George Washington University. An educator and painter, his work is collected by known celebrities and private collectors both here and abroad.
