Join artist Ken Kewley at Fort Smith Regional Art Museum in downtown Fort Smith, Arkansas, for the Inventing Worlds - Building Representation with Abstraction workshop on February 24-26, 2023.

Looking and Inventing. In art one must do both. We’ll start by painting paper, which we cut into shapes, and arrange/collage into abstract compositions. Then we take similar shapes and make people, places, and things. Abstraction and representation together. Whatever the subject, it is the arrangement of the abstract shapes that gives strength to our representations. 

Museum Members: $175
Non-Members: $200

Ken Kewley Bio

Born in Michigan and now residing in Pennsylvania, while Kewley was living in New York, he painted during the day and was a night watchman at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (where he was schooled). Over the years, Kewley realized that he was leaving something out of his representational work. It was the abstraction. For the last fourteen years, he has been teaching workshops on composing shapes, through drawing, painting, and collage.
