1821 Gallery & Studios is proud to present the impressionistic oil paintings of Fresno City College Painting Instructor Kevin Stewart – Magee. This work is about time, history and memory; forces and influences that are as invisible as the wind, seen best in their effect. None of these objects or places were new, working or occupied, at the time they were painted. For a moment they were quiet performances of light and shadow. Perhaps a cycle of conception, function, retirement and abandonment runs quietly, slowly beneath the surface of our homes, schools, jobs and lives. Cheerfully, running on and on like a model train, always forward, in a circle — an arc of exhaustion and engagement. Kevin Stewart- Magee was born on a military base in Iran and raised in and around Columbus, Ohio. He earned his BFA from the Ohio State University and his MFA from CSU Fullerton. He teaches all levels of painting and murals at Fresno City College.
Art Hop is March 7, 5-8 PM.
