M Gallery of Fine Art in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Kevin Beilfuss
The M Gallery of Fine Art in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Figurative Works by Kevin Beilfuss, an exhibition of the latest figurative pieces from the collection of Chicago artist, Kevin Beilfuss, on view from Jan. 6 - 31, 2011. An opening reception will be held on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011, from 5-8pm.
Recent winner of the Gold Medal at the Eastern Regional OPA 2010, recipient of OPA Nationals Awards of Excellence in 2009 & 2010, and given the Peoples Choice Award in 2008, Beilfuss has taken several prestigious awards and continues to gain recognition through his series of contemporary representational figures.
After graduating from Illinois State University and the American Academy of Art, Beilfuss spent 13 years as a free-lance illustrator for several well known publishers including Viking Press, Penguin Publishing, Houghton Mifflin and Readers Digest. Growing tired of producing work to meet the demands of his clients, he began painting full time and has continued to showcase his fine art throughout the United States. Beilfuss resides in Chicago, IL, with his wife and son.
Beilfuss offered the following artist statement: "One can obviously see the beauty of God's creation in nature, but for me it is even more profound when I see and experience that beauty in people. There is always something new and awe-inspiring to discover when painting the human figure."
