Welcome to Ken Davies: Atelier 2014
We are thrilled to welcome Ken Davies Atelier back to the Greene Art Gallery. Our first atelier show with Ken last year was a rousing success with many sales and much critical acclaim. This year’s show aims to please with the addition of two artists, John Falato and Jo-Anne Scavetta, who will join Paul Lipp, Daniel Patrick Buckley and Michael Theise.
Ken Davies’ work is in many still life collections around the world. He has shown his work here at the Greene Art Gallery since 1987, and, indeed, the founder of the Gallery, Richard B. Greene, considered Ken to be the foremost living trompe l’oeil artist in the world. As with last year’s Atelier, all of the paintings in the show have been conceived and were critiqued by Ken but have been executed by five handpicked artists, who were all students of his. Artists usually work in isolation but in this case their work is driven by Ken, critiqued by him and then presented under both of their names.
Join us for this Ken Davies celebration of fine still life and trompe l’oeil paintings. We look forward to seeing you at the Greene Art Gallery for this remarkable show.
