Artist Talk and Wine & Cheese Reception with Artist Chris Kelly
Artist Talk and Wine & Cheese Reception with Artist Chris Kelly.
Come hear the fascinating artist Chris Kelly as he speaks about the history of the Golden Ratio in Art and the various ways it has been used since the time of the Ancient Greeks to present day. He will also talk about how it relates to the geometry of nature and how he uses it as a source of inspiration to create his abstract paintings and sculptures. The discussion will be part art history, part philosophy about art, and how we can keep finding new ways of artistic expression based on the world around us.
Wine and cheese reception begins at 5pm with Artist Talk beginning shortly after.
Chris Kelly was raised on the east end of Long Island in East Hampton, NY. He studied painting and sculpture at Cornell University and his work has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions – most recently at Colm Rowan Fine Art in East Hampton, amArtHouse in Bantam, CT, Mark Borghi gallery in Sag Harbor, The Lucore Art Gallery in Montauk, and here at The Leiber Museum in Springs. In addition, he was represented at the Hamptons Fine Art Fair in Southampton and was honored as a “Featured Artist” for their 2022 exhibition. He has received corporate commissions from such places as the Dream Hotel in Manhattan, the Grey Matters design group in Singapore, and his artworks are in many corporate spaces and private collections. After living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for many years, Kelly is now back in East Hampton where he lives and creates artwork full time.
