Riverfest 2017

I will be exhibiting this month at Riverfest in Narrowsburg, NY with my friend Jim Kingston.  Jim and I have belonged to the same figure painting group for the last 7 years and he has been a welcomed part of my artistic support network out in the Catskills. This will be our second year exhibiting together at Riverfest. I also have a nocturne in the present exhibit at The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance Gallery in the show entitled, “Night Watch”. My image is “Night Tree” painted from 4:30 am until early dawn after a deep snowfall this winter. So, please stop in to see this painting in the gallery on Main Street as well.

As a student Jim Kingston studied the Brandywine style of Illustration under Norman Baer, a disciple of Howard Pyle. He spent his life in the world of humorous illustration, commercial artist and as a leader in transforming art-production into the digital age. Working in watercolor for most of his life he has transitioned to oil painting over the past 5 years. For more information on Jim Kingston visit his web site http://jimkingston.com

Judith Reeve grew up along the Delaware River, not far from Chadds Ford. At the age of nine, she met Andrew Wyeth. This meeting, in hindsight, was a pivotal moment allowing her to recognize the possibility of painting being a vital life-long pursuit. Images of my work can be viewed in the portfolio sections of my blog.

Come spend the day along the Delaware River and visit us and the many other talented artists exhibiting their works.

For nearly 30 years I've developed my painting practice in the studio, building on what I leaned from my student days at the Lyme Academy of Fine Art. Along with my daily journey creating images which I write about here on this blog, I am also currently writing a book on the color practice of Robert Henri.
