Watercolor with Jeff Chapman-Crane

October 20 - 22, 2017

Jeff Chapman-Crane is a Southern Appalachian artist who lifts up the truth and integrity of the mountain experience with realistic images of people and places. He works in water-based media (watercolor, gouache, and egg tempera) and has been painting for over 40 years since being challenged and inspired by his high school art teacher, Don Hilton.

His realistic work follows well-established traditions in American art, in the vein of Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, and Andrew Wyeth for their portrayals of ordinary life.

His work has been featured in American Artist Magazine, and he is a four-time finalist in the Artists Magazine's annual portrait competition. He was the illustrator for the children's book, "Ragsale", which won Best in Show at the 1995 New England Bookfair. Jeff's work has been represented by J.N. Bartfield Gallery in New York City, the Phyllis J. Weston Art Gallery and is currently represented by Greenwich House Gallery Fine Art both of Cincinnati, Ohio.
