The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is currently exhibiting a selection of works by Kevin Kintner in the Bernier Room, in Suite 135 of the Rochester Community Center.
Kintner received a BFA from Buffalo State College in 1981 and completed his MFA at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 1984. For more than 40 years he’s continued to produce art and exhibit his works throughout the United States and Canada. For 18 months he owned and operated ARGH Gallery (Manchester, NH) and he is also a member of the City of Manchester Arts Commission.
“Since this horrible pandemic shuttered people back in March I’ve been painting,” said Kintner. “The world had become full of anxiety and fear and my first instinct was to paint those stressed-out emotions on canvas.”
“In my mind, in the news, in the world out there everything seemed bleak, heavy, dark,” Kintner continued. “I wanted bright color and energetic light and joyous movement and something alive. These are some of the paintings from this year. I guess they are floral themed though no actual flower species is directly reproduced. I see them as garden paintings or landscapes or space-scapes but ultimately escapes. I hope others enjoy them, too.”
The works will be on display for the month of January. The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is located in the Rochester Community Center at 150 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH. Visit www.rochestermfa.org to learn more.
The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is sponsored by the City of Rochester, Rochester Main Street, Bernier Insurance, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, and Lenharth Systems.
