Frederic Kellogg: Works in Oil and Watercolor June 17 - August 13, 2017
Frederic Kellogg, Bridge at Waldoboro, 2013. Watercolor. Private Collection.
Kellogg's work belongs within—and extends—what could be called a river of tradition American landscape, figural and still-life painting; a broad, quarter-millennium course flowing from John Singleton Copley and Thomas Cole to Milton Avery and Andrew Wyeth. Kellogg works by a combination of sketches made in his constant-companion notebook, of watercolors done en plein-air, or in the studio from notes, or painting in oil on canvas. All three forms are included in this exhibition, featuring landscapes from Maine and Washington, DC where Kellogg splits his time.
