northstarart keeler'Ace of Hearts' by Brian Keeler

North Star Art Gallery presents 'Figuratively Painting' with an Open Studio Reception on March 3rd from 11am to 4pm.

This exhibition presents Brian Keeler's study of the human form ranging from nude studies to genre scenes. His intricate detail, use of rich color and play of light and shadow display a depth of interest in figurative presentation. Brian Keeler's contribution to the tradition of figurative paintings is demonstrated in this exhibition.

Keeler attended the International Figurative Art Convention and Expo (FACE) in Miami in November, and some of his new work has been inspired by the spirit of this event.

Keeler's works have received a host of awards and acclaim over a career of thirty plus years. His paintings are widely collected by individuals, corporations, and museums. The Roberson Museum ran a special 6-month exhibit of 95 Keeler works in 2016. Keeler's museum-quality works have won hundreds of awards. He was recently recognized with awards for Best Plein Air Oil in 2017 by Plein Air Magazine, the John Arnot Sr. Award for Oil Painting by Arnot Art Museum in Spring 2016, Top Award for Oil Painting at the Butternut Gallery in Spring 2016.
