The GAR will be featuring the artwork of Kevin Harris from January 16th through the month of February. Harris, a native of Kent County, studied commercial art in high school, and graphic layout at the Digital Arts Institute in Baltimore. He has been painting on and off for over thirty years. His rebirth as an artist occurred three years ago, and since then has focused on abstract work representing African American culture with an emphasis on spirituality and experience in the community today. His highly original work is painted on glass, from behind with acrylics and other mediums. Curated by Marilee Schumann and Fai Wilson.
