Sam Kelly – Solo Exhibition

February 1 through February 24

Sam Kelly received his BFA in Painting from Wright State University in 2010 and his MFA in Painting from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2014. He also attended the summer program at the Chautauqua School of Art. He currently lives in Oakwood, Ohio and is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Dayton and Wright State University. 

Show Statement:

The solo exhibition of artist, Sam Kelly, at the Dutoit Gallery consists mostly of inventive still-lifes and portraits. Incorporating various materials into his work, such as oil paint, oil pastel, sand and marble dust, Kelly’s paintings take on an enigmatic and non-descriptive quality. According to Kelly, “the paintings begin with a vague idea, often going through a rigorous additive and subtractive process.” The paintings are modest in subject but intense in their visual energy.


Exhibition: February 1 – February 24, 2019
Opening: First Friday, February 1 from 6 – 9 pm
Also Open: Third Sunday, February 17 from 11 – 4 pm
