Featuring: Brian Keeler


Brian Keeler- Night of the Peepers

This coming Friday, September 5th, we here at the West End Gallery will be holding a reception, running from 5-7:30 PM, to mark the opening of our newest exhibit which features new paintings from two of our most popular artists, Bridget Bossart van Otterloo and Brian Keeler.  Music will be provided by Matrix and the opening is being graciously sponsored by Christopher G. Quinn, Attorney at Law. It is a gorgeous show and one that you should not miss.

This week we are featuring posts with a little more info on both Bridget and Brian.  Monday we featured Bridget and today we focus on Brian Keeler.

Brian Keeler has been a full-time  professional artist for nearly forty years and in that time Brian has developed a style that is distinctly his own, one that has drawn collectors from wide and far to his bright colored visions of the landscape that are filled with a quiet contemplation.  We here at the West End Gallery have been fortunate to see his work for many of those years and it is always so consistently strong and beautiful that we may sometimes forget how extraordinary it is. And this latest group is an exceptional one, even for Brian’s high standards.

Brian Keeler, His New Book!

Brian Keeler, His New Book!

Brian’s credentials,  including numerous shows in widespread galleries and museums as well as many awards, is an extensive and impressive  list, a testament to the quality of his work.  He is also well known as highly regarded teacher of painting, for the last ten years conducting painting tours of Italy, appearing in a number of instructional DVDs  showing his wonderful technique and also authoring books on painting including his new Dramatic Color in the Landscape, published by Northlight Books.

With his beautiful work, Brian is creating a lasting legacy  in which  we are honored and pleased to play a part.

We hope you will stop out Friday to see this wonderful show and meet the artists.  There will also be a Gallery Talk with both Bridget Bossart van Otterloo and Brian Keeler on Saturday, September 13, from 1-2 PM here in the gallery.  It will be followed immediately by a book signing with Brian for his new book.  Pencil in that date– September 20th– as it should be a great event!
