Exhibition

An empty booth at a diner. The façade of a suburban cottage. Factory chimneys outlined against a gray sky. These are just a few of the images rendered in color pencil, pastel, or oil paint by the artist Kevin MacDonald. For more than 30 years, MacDonald's artwork found critical praise and popular acclaim in the Washington region and beyond. When MacDonald died of kidney cancer in 2006, he was at the height of his powers. Ten years after his passing, we are proud to be able to present the first major museum exhibition of his work.
