Kevin Peterson’s oil paintings arrived today and seeing them up close gave me a new appreciation for works that I already thought were beautiful. Each detail, from the worn bricks of a city wall to the peeling stickers affixed to it, add to the evidence that Peterson’s talent is ever-growing. In almost photo-realistic precision, Peterson paints scenes made more powerful by the inclusion of the individual particularities of each person and place, effectively bringing them alive in the eye of the beholder.
Attend a preview of Peterson’s solo show “Prospective,” at Shooting Gallery tonight from 6-10pm as part of the Lower Polk Art Walk and join us for the official opening this Saturday, 7-11pm- RSVP Here
