CUMBERLAND, MD—The Allegany Arts Council is partnering with local fine art dealer, Ferleman & Company, for a special pop-up exhibition featuring the work of Ithaca, New York-based contemporary realist painter, Brian Keeler. The exhibition will run in the Saville Gallery from January 6-27, 2024.

His large format works highlight landscapes, beach scenes and common streets found all across the United States.

Keeler has also published several books and magazines, including a legacy project, “Light on the Figure: Aspects of Painting People,” which highlights more than four decades of his work.
A Public Opening will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2024, from 6:00PM-8:00PM and is free and open to the public. Keeler will also host an oil painting demonstration on Saturday, January 13, 2024, from 1:00PM-3:00PM. The event is free and no registration is required.
