The Oil Paintings of Ken Wilson: Meet The Artist Reception
Sat, Jul 18, 2015 | 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Saunders Gallery of Fine Art at bjsartworks presents The Oil Paintings of Ken Wilson July 18 - August 29, 2015 Meet the Artist Reception: Sat. July 18, 4 - 6pm Saratoga Artist, Ken Wilson is an equine artist, who also paints the regional landscape. Ken was born and raised in Albany, NY, where attended high school and studied at the University at Albany. Ken has been an oil painter and graphite pencil artist for over 30 years, having won awards at juried events from New York to North Carolina. He recently got back into painting after setting it aside, during his 20 year law enforcement career. Ken is self-taught, which has been accomplished throughout the years by voracious study of painting techniques, leaning towards contemporary realism and impressionism “I think of my work as a dichotomy of dynamic, contrasting styles. The heart-pounding power, athleticism and grace captured in my thoroughbreds, compliment the sedate, peaceful and sublime feelings evoked by my landscapes.” Ken Wilson
