FEATURED ARTIST EDWARD KINGSBURY III AT GALLERY IN THE WOODS
Brattleboro, VT – Edward Kingsbury III’s new works are featured at Gallery in the Woods for the month of August with an opening during Gallery Walk on Friday, August 6 from 5:30 – 8 PM. Kingsbury is a self-taught artist who works in many mediums. His artistic process is informed by a deeply prayerful, meditative life.
In 1997 he was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and he found making art to be therapeutic as it serves the purpose of connecting at a deep level with the mystery and acceptance. He describes his work as a conversation with God, allowing the process to happen organically without preconceptions. He has been known for highly detailed abstract, black and white, stream-of-consciousness drawings.
Recent work develops the expression of spiritual connection in color, through digital printmaking and oil painting. The Keene native began showing his work in 2004 and has exhibited his art Brooklyn’s Peirogi Gallery and its Flat File program, a collection of works by more than 700 international artists, at Carroll and Sons Art Gallery, as part of the Boston Drawing Project, in the Outsider Folk Art Gallery for self-taught artists, and at the Outsider Art Fair, at SOFA national show in Chicago, the National Folk Show in Atlanta and at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center.
He was a recipient of the Ewing Arts Award in 2019. Come meet the artist at Gallery Walk in August at Gallery in the Woods, 145 Main Street. For more information go to galleryinthewoods.com or call (802) 257-4777.
