Keith Gunderson “On the Town”
November 5, 2021 - January 2, 2022
In November and December, The Wallkill River School is pleased to present “Painting Porcelain” a solo exhibit by Paola Bari, “On the Town” a solo exhibit by Keith Gunderson and “Small Works” a group show juried by Paola Bari.
“On the Town” will feature oil paintings of cityscapes and towns by Keith Gunderson. Gunderson studied drawing extensively in Chicago, while working as a staff illustrator at the Chicago Tribune. Then, in New York, he studied at the National Academy of Art, The New York Academy, and the Art Students League, where he learned the mechanics of painting and most notably about the phenomena of the light effect and shadow. “I love Keith’s work,” says Sarah Fortner Pierson, Executive Director of WRS. “Each piece employs light and mood in a new way. A room full of his work is always exciting.”
Exhibits will be open to the public from November 5, 2021 through January 2, 2022. The gallery is open to the public Friday through Sunday, 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The Wallkill River School is located at 232 Ward Street, Montgomery, NY 12549. A public reception for the artists will be held on November 13, 2021 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Works will also be available for viewing and purchase at www.Wallkill.art.
