Skyuka Fine Art in Tryon, NC, Features Works by Keith Spencer

Skyuka Fine Art in Tryon, NC, will present the exhibit, Keith Spencer - Carolina Color, on view from Sept. 10 through Oct. 9, 2011. A reception will be held on Sept. 10, from 5-8pm.

Spencer’s artwork displays extraordinary use of color and brushwork that when combined produce a visual feast for the eyes. In his new show Carolina Color, intense local as well as expressive color flood the canvas in delicious hues. There is a boldness to his creativity and the works are full of life and energy. The result is a striking range of paintings that can be found in galleries and collections throughout the United States and Europe.

Spencer has been described as “both an expressive painter and a true colorist” by William Kortlander, Professor of Art at Ohio State University. His landscapes are frequently done in the alla prima tradition (one sitting) and feature North Carolina and South Carolina; the mountainous upstate, where he now lives, as well as the Lowcountry surrounding Charleston, SC. He is included in the upcoming book by Edward Emory and Stephen Stinson called, Artists Among Us - 100 Faces of Art in Spartanburg, available at Barnes and Noble Nov. 6, 2011.
