Opening Reception: Friday, February 3, 6-8 pm
Kiechel Fine Art is pleased to announce the first exhibition for Steven DeLair at the gallery. The show entitled Variations and Contrasts will be on view from January 30th through March 9th. The opening reception will be held on Friday, February 3rd from 6 to 8 p.m.
Steven DeLair studied fine art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln before living and working in Arizona. After nearly 30 years, he returned to Nebraska. His early works, realist large-scale oils, have recently been replaced by a new body of work exploring new methods, materials and style. This conscious break from the past has resulted in richly saturated watercolors and acrylics that balance the line between reality and abstraction. The few canvases in the show reflect the influence of his recent experimentation through more traditional methods. DeLair’s color and style, reminicent of the Bay area painters, adds a unique perspective to the Nebraskan landscape.
DeLair’s work has been included in private and corporate collections internationally and featured in national publications.
