EASTON - Troika Gallery in downtown Easton is featuring its annual show of new works by renowned painter Kevin Fitzgerald through July 10.
Fitzgerald is a nationally-recognized tonalist whose dedicated collectors span the globe. His sought-after, evocative landscapes and moody seascapes have been described as compelling, daunting, complicated and peaceable.
Less is more in Fitzgerald's eyes. His minimalist style aims to engage the viewer in a "silent dialogue." In this discourse, he said, "the viewer is moved by the image alone, not by what the image depicts. The key is the imagination and its vocabulary of remembrance, hope, love, beauty and longing."
Fitzgerald has been painting for more than 30 years. Born in Washington, D.C. in 1953, he began painting in early childhood and went on to study at the Corcoran School of Art, the Maryland Institute College of Art and George Washington University. He completed his graduate studies on a 54-foot barge that he restored and converted into a floating studio, from which he painted on the Patuxent River and surrounding Southern Maryland landscapes. Fitzgerald's mentor is Raoul Middleman, a master painter from Baltimore who also is represented by Troika Gallery. Fitzgerald has participated in numerous one-person and group shows and his work is included in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, England and Germany.
Troika Gallery is located at 9 S. Harrison St. in Easton. For more information, call 410-770-9190 or visit www.troikagallery.com
