The Kefauver Studio & Gallery, Damariscotta, announces the opening of the “Small Works” art show, opening October 11th and running until November 10th. Work will be presented in a variety of mediums, including oil, watercolor, sculpture, photography, gouache, and pastel. The show features new work by oil painter Will Kefauver, and the work of his juried guest artists.
Guest artist John McKinley lives in California and is new to the gallery with this show. In addition to being a fine artist, he is also a children’s book illustrator, having illustrated the popular “Ready Freddy” series for elementary students, published by Scholastic, that now has over 13 million copies in print. Past clients include Children’s Television Workshop, the National Wildlife Federation, the Los Angeles Times, and Ogilvy & Mather, to name just a few.
McKinley has seven mixed-media works, each 6” x 6” or 7” x 5”, in the “Small Works” show. The subjects include dogs, cats, and one compelling dragon, with one thing in common: Each animal has a piercing gaze, focused directly on the viewer.
The complete list of guest artists for this show will be published on a future date.
The opening reception will be held on Sunday, October 13th, from 4:30 – 6:30. Refreshments will be served, and there is free parking. Many of the guest artists will be present to meet visitors and discuss their work.
