Brian Keeler Reception

Brian S. Keeler – Luminous Lakes Opening Reception

Join us November 30 during Urban Arts Crawl to experience the beautifully profound work of Brian S. Keeler. Light hors d’oeuvre, beverages, and live music from Zingology. Featuring Ted Caldwell on stand-up bass, Sue Smith on chromatic harmonica, Joanna Green on violin, Doug Robinson on guitar, Brian Keeler on guitar and Art Godin on guitar.


“This show of my recent paintings at 171 Cedar Arts Center is a collection of recent plein air and studio works focusing on the beauty of Seneca and Keuka Lakes.  The title of this show, “Luminous Lakes”, suggest my interest in painting the ephemeral effects of light and atmosphere as it plays on and describes the topography of these landscapes.  Working out of doors, from observation is source of inspiration and connects the process to that direct type of painting popularized by the impressionists painters and before them to the proto-impressionist French artist, Jean Baptiste Camille Corot.  Taking the immediacy of portraying the motif in oil into larger studio works, of which there are several in this show, adds a sense of authenticity to the imagery.

My interest is also in connection to and conveying a sense of Americana or how the land, agrarian tradition and architecture all indicate a unique place. These specifics of history and locale also become a spring board or window into more primordial aspects of nature, such as light, wind, rhythms and atmospheric beauty.” -Brian S. Keeler

Brian Keeler’s painting are on display through January 11, 2019
