Join Hidell Brooks Gallery Friday, september 7th from 6 – 8 pm, as they open two new artists’ exhibitions for September. David Kroll and Ron Porter will be on display through the month.
David Kroll received his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a MFA fom the Art Institute of Chicago. He taught in Chicago for almost 20 years. Kroll paints personal refuges and interior landscapes – places to visit for solace and sanctuary.
Ron Porter recently retired from Vanderbilt University, where he was a professor of art for 14 years. Porter received his MFA from Ohio University. His oil paintings are surrealist in nature, often depicting dramatic, exquisitely rendered landscapes interposed with mysterious still lifes or tractor trailer trucks indecipherably blended into the natural scenery.
