Artist Reception for Ed Kaplan, Painter
Thursday, May 5, 2016
Join us on Thursday, May 5, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM during the Amherst Art Walk for the opening reception of painter Ed Kaplan's exhibit, Photorealistic Paintings, at the Town Hall Gallery.
Ed's inspiration comes from the urban landscape. According to the artist, "These metropolitan scenes are an inspiration to me, as they capture a time and place in history, each with their own unique energy, luminosity, and shadow but, most importantly, a story. My objective is to continue exploring and observing these urban dwellings and haunts to find inspiration I can use to capture on my canvas. My ultimate intent is for the observer to gain the same perspective I viewed, when they explore my work. Since I first began painting, I have always painted in a photorealistic style. My current works retain the photo realistic aspect, but with a painterly hand as well."
