“Perspective” is a solo exhibit by Kevin Kusiolek which he describes as “a visual diary of my experiences painted onto a surface”. The exhibit showcases oil paintings of the modern landscape capturing both Salem and Boston. Kevin Kusiolek is a local artist working out of his studio in Salem, MA.
Kevin Kusiolek will be conducting a gallery talk for his solo show, Perspective. Kevin will discuss his work within the gallery and give insight to his approach and studio practice. The artist will also provide a “step-by-step” example of one of his paintings to demonstrate his painting process. There will also be time allotted for Q&A for Kevin to field any questions.
