Artist Chris Kelly's solo show opens May 29 at the new Colm Rowan Fine Art Gallery in East Hampton.
Local artist Chris Kelly has returned to the East End and will launch his first solo show with a meet and greet reception on Saturday, May 29, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the new Colm Rowan Fine Art Gallery in East Hampton. The show will run through Sunday, June 20.
The first solo show post-COVID, Kelly’s opening will launch the 2021 season at the new gallery. The “geometric abstracts” exhibition, sometimes described as “hard-edge minimalism,” features all new paintings created in the last year and a half. The first paintings in the series were purchased by Richemont North America Inc. and currently hang in their corporate headquarters on 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Additionally, the exhibition will include never before seen works on paper done in acrylics and pencil, as well as abstract wood sculptures.
Kelly was raised in East Hampton and studied painting and sculpture at Cornell University. His work has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions, most recently at Gallery RIVAA in New York City. He has received corporate commissions from the Dream Hotel in Manhattan and the Grey Matters design group in Singapore, and his paintings are in many corporate spaces and private collections. He has also worked extensively on projects with interior design firms ranging from onsite murals in Harbor Island, Bahamas, to large-scale installations in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, for many years, Kelly has returned to his roots in East Hampton where he lives and creates art full time.
Colm Rowan Fine Art Gallery is located at 55 Main Street, East Hampton. For more information, visit colmrowan.com.
