The Hutchinson Art Center is hosting an artist reception for Brian W. Hinkle, a self-described twenty-first century impressionist focusing on Kansas landscapes, on Friday, September 6, from 5-7 p.m. It will be at the Art Center, 405 N. Washington. It is free and open to the public.
Brian Hinkle has been developing his career as an artist since receiving his MFA at Wichita State University in 1992. In 2008 he made the transition to full time oil painter concentrating on the regional landscape. In describing his style Hinkle says “it falls into the general category of contemporary realism, with tonalist and impressionist influences.”
“During the past few years my artwork has become increasingly focused on landscape painting: Kansas, the Rockies, urban scenes from Wichita and Kansas City,” he says. “I find inspiration in the scenes I encounter in daily life and travel, interpreting my visual experiences in paint on canvas.”
Mr. Hinkle is well-known in Kansas and the Midwest as both a painter and instructor. His artwork is currently represented by Strecker-Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, Kansas Artworks Inc.in Wichita, Kansas, and Leopold Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri.
