Keep It Simple IV” exhibit reception set for November, 12

Exhibit features local artist Keary Kautzer

 The Sheboygan community is invited to visit the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan Fine Arts Gallery for its latest art exhibition, “Keep It Simple IV” by local artist and photographer Keary Kautzer.  An opening reception is planned for Thursday, November 12, 2015, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery. The public is invited to attend.

Keary Kautzer works for the City of Sheboygan as the Director of WSCS.

Kautzer’s original paintings are mainly in watercolors, depicting water and landscape scenes, mostly painted en plein air in the style of the American Modernists.  Kautzer’s paintings are his visual record of where he has been and what he has seen.

Kautzer’s mentor, James Michael always stressed “Keep it simple,” and that is his goal with each painting.

Kautzer is a member of the Wisconsin Watercolor Society, Water’s Edge Artists, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Wisconsin Plein Aire Painters Association, and the Sheboygan Visual Artists.

All artwork will be on display from November 2-30, 2015.  The Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday – Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located inside the Fine Arts Building on the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan campus.
