Brett Eberhardt & Gregory Hennan

Saturday April 1, 4:00 PM - Sunday May 14

Kenise Barnes Fine Art -7 Fulling Lane Kent, CT

Brett Eberhardt & Gregory Hennen
Opening Reception on April 1s 4:00 - 6:00 PM Public Invited

Brett Eberhardt’s painted interiors are inhabited by singular objects and are vacant of human presence save the reminders in the painted surfaces, worn floor boards or a work table softened by use. Eberhardt’s humble interiors, lushly described in oil paint, depict the well-loved surfaces of his studio and home in a tender, devout manner.

Gregory Hennen paints the mountains and valleys of the dramatic landscape of his Virginia home. A naturalist as well as a life-long painter, Hennen has a close relationship with his environment. On his daily walks he fills sketchbooks chronicling the land, the effect of passing light and the seasonal changes. By building up tens of thousands of small brushstrokes, Hennen’s paintings are a complex collection of small marks gathered and made solid. The landscape paintings are at once astoundingly complex and perfectly calm. Hennen makes what can be described as ego-less paintings, perfectly crafted and stunningly beautiful; his paintings are a joy to take in.
