Poetic Visions Exhibition Opening | Featuring John Andersen & Kimberly Beck

Venue: J. Petter Galleries
161 N. Blue Star Highway Douglas, MI 49406
Join us for a meet & greet and demonstration with Kimberly Beck and John Andersen. Kimberly Beck is a fine artist who specializes in painting birds. After graduating from The University of Michigan with a degree in English Literature, she studied drawing and illustration at The California College of Arts and Crafts. As an illustrator, she created bird-themed products for The Nature Company and other print companies that sold her work nationally. Her avian-themed paintings have been juried into the prestigious international “Birds in Art” exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum of Art, Wausau, Wisconsin, selected for the museum’s National Tours, and are part of the Museum’s permanent collection. John is an American realist painter living in West Michigan. His central themes are change and memory. Painting in the transient and ephemeral qualities of the light and atmosphere in the changing seasons with waxing or waning light. He has abandoned the use of photographic reference and Plein-air painting in favor of his own memory and imagination. John says this leads him to a more personal and expressive view of the landscape. He does not seek to record a specific place, instead, he expresses a poetic vision of the world. He paints in the style of the old masters. John is truly an old soul in the body of a young man.
