First Friday Picture Show: Paintings by Kevin Margitich

This month's First Friday Picture Show features the paintings of Kevin Margitich. When not working at a local newspaper, Kevin spends most of his days brewing beer, painting, and home renovating. Over the past few years, his paintings have been shown in Seattle, New Hampshire, Florida, and Pennsylvania. Hanging his hat in Philadelphia, Kevin’s most recent and upcoming shows combine his sketchy-minimal-style animal art and his homebrewed beer. This collection of paintings from 2009-2011 is best summed up in this quote: “He avoids strict realism in favor of a more compassionate, almost human expression, opting for blank, solid color backgrounds, maybe with a silhouetted tree, in lieu of his subjects’ literal habitat.” (Alicia Grega-Pikul: Electric City). You can find Kevin online at kevinmargitich.com and brewsofourlives.blogspot.com. Enjoy!
