Noted regional artist Jeffrey Klinker will open a show in the Feature Gallery at Athens Arts today. It continues through September 5. The exhibit will feature a rich display of the artist’s open air oil works of Indiana landscapes made during the past decade.
Over his long life as an artist, Klinker has explored various colors, tones, and subjects, always through the medium of oil. His earlier works, notable for their earthy tones, a period Klinker now refers to as “my umber days,” are far behind him. He explains that his painting has evolved to “explode with color.”
