"Cross Roads" by Ken Fiery, Oil on Linen
The Painterly Strokes of Impressionism…
AMHERST – The Friends of the Amherst Town Library is honored to exhibit associate member, Ken Fiery, of the Oil Painters of America as part of the Professional Artists Exhibit June 1 - 30 at the Amherst Town Library.
Ken’s paintings captures the essence of Impressionism with painterly brush strokes that brings canvasesto life through his vibrant use of color to create snapshots of familiar New England places that draws the viewer in for a closer look.
"Painting was a hobby for me for most of my life until about twenty years ago when I was irresistibly drawn into it as a professional adventure.” Ken had the remarkably good fortune of becoming a student of the late prominent New Hampshire artist, Calvin Libby and then later a student at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
His most recent teacher of many years, who remains mentor and friend, is Maine Coast painter Stan Moeller. Ken has also been privileged to study with Don Stone, one of America’s most famous painters.
The public is invited to the Artist Reception on Sunday, June 4 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. to meet Ken Fiery and view his works at the Amherst Town Library located at 14 Main Street in Amherst. If you have any questions please contact Christine Farris at FOLArts@icloud.com
