Eve Mansdorf / Bio
Eve Mansdorf received her MFA in Painting from from Brooklyn College and her BA in Psychology from Cornell University. She teaches Painting at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. She is known for large paintings of figures in interiors, still lifes and on site paintings that draw from the landscape and the neighborhood in Bloomington where she lives.
Eve Mansdorf paints perceptually and often her work is done close to home – even when her “home” relocates to other countries and parts of the US. The group of paintings in this exhibition were done while living in Berlin and Rome. She has shown her work at First Street Gallery and Gallery Henoch in New York and at various venues in the Midwest.
Tim Kennedy / Biography
Tim Kennedy received his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University, an MFA from Brooklyn College and he attended the Skowhegan School. Kennedy has received individual artist grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Indiana Arts Commission, the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the Clark Hulings Fund. His work has been reviewed in The New York Sun, The New York Observer and the Indianapolis Star. Articles on his work have appeared in The Artist’s Magazine, American Artist Magazine and Watercolor Magazine. An interview with Tim Kennedy was featured on Larry Groff’s blog Painting Perceptions. He exhibits his work at First Street Gallery in New York and is a Senior Lecturer of Painting at Indiana University in Bloomington.
Kennedy’s work embraces all of the genres but he has repeatedly returned to themes of domestic interior and landscape. He works primarily from observation and directly from the motif or from painted or drawn studies done directly from the subject. His goal is to work directly and without an intervening filter.
