Lincoln Perry: Places in Time & Kathryn Keller: Interiors and Landscapes
Opening May 5
4 May – 3 June 2019
Les Yeux du Monde Gallery
Lincoln Perry and Kathryn Keller will show new works at Les Yeux du Monde from May 4 – June 3. An opening reception for both artists will be held on Saturday, May 5 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Lincoln Perry’s Places in Time will exhibit his latest paintings inspired by his travels with his wife, writer Ann Beattie, to Italy and variously amongst their residences in Key West, Maine and now Staunton VA. Places and their histories are conjured as he paints on the spot where Camille Corot painted in Tivoli in the mid 1800s or as he paints the train station in Staunton VA thinking of the heyday of train travel there in the 1880s.
Well known muralist and expert painter of figures in architectural and landscape settings, Perry has exhibited widely and is in collections of museums and corporations throughout the U.S. and abroad. His murals are in Charlottesville as well as in Washington D.C., Tallahassee FL and St. Louis, MS.
Kathryn Keller’s Interiors and Landscapes, is also inspired by places Keller lives, works or visits–her family home and farm in Louisiana, the North Carolina mountains and more. Her paintings, while based on particulars, rise to a level of universality and timelessness in her sensitive handling of the paint and purity of composition. Her mediums include oil and watercolor, and all of her works evoke strong feelings and memories seemingly stopped in time. Keller’s work has been featured in shows from New York to Santa Fe and has shown extensively in galleries and museums throughout the south,
Les Yeux du Monde is located at 841 Wolf Trap Road in Charlottesville and is open Thursday – Saturday 1 – 5 and anytime by appointment. Call 434-973-5566 or consult our website, LYDM.co for more information.
