John T. Kelly
Exhibit: February 9-April 3
Reception: Friday, February 19, 5 pm

Snowy Field

An exhibit of oil paintings from the work of John T. Kelly. Originally from Waterford, New York, Kelly considers himself “an observational painter,┬ámotivated by a kind of spiritual nourishment by being actively engaged in nature as I paint. I venture out not always sure of what I will discover and am challenged to record what I witness.”

Please join us for a conversation with Kelly during the reception on February 19th!

On February 11 at 7 pm, the group will be discussing The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin by Masha Gessen.
