Joseph Keiffer: I Still Believe in Beauty
Joseph Keiffer: I Still Believe in Beauty highlights recent paintings by Joseph Keiffer, who credits the artists of the Hudson River School for his inspiration. Keiffer looks for beauty wherever he goes, every day, and said the following in the exhibition catalog: “After a day sketching, I am often dismayed to find the most beautiful sight of the day happens during the last hours. My painting of Seal Harbor was one of those moments. Beauty is often an unexpected surprise.”
Keiffer has a personal affinity to Maine’s landscape and has spent the past twenty-plus years painting in and around the Acadia region. Last summer, he was given the opportunity to spend a marvelous week at a summerhouse on Great Spruce Head Island. The house is a brilliantly and gracefully designed cottage, and his show includes a number of paintings from inside and outside the house. Keiffer lives in New York City and splits his time between the City, the Catskills, and Maine.
