Jeff Kern - about

Jeff Kern is a native of western Mass, received his bachelor of fine arts at UMass., Amherst and has been painting full time 25 years. His main medium is oil paint. He is inspired by the beauty of nature and his work is a celebration of his response to that beauty. His work is realistic; that is to say that it is a conscientious interpretation of the qualities of light, form, and texture that strike our eyes. He especially enjoys painting water scenes taken from local rivers. He has also worked extensively in trompe l’oeil still-life, buildings, bird’s, nudes, and flowers; and from further afield he has created a series of paintings collected on several trips to Newfoundland.

He was active in the Copley Society in Boston in the 90’s, where he won the Robb Sagendorph award, was featured in Yankee magazine and achieved the level of Copley Master. He has won numerous awards in juried shows and has been

represented by over a dozen galleries. He has been represented by R. Michelson Gallery in Northampton, Ma. since the early 90’s. He has had numerous commissions for corporate and private patrons, and recently completed a large panting for the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Indian Orchard, Mass. He taught art classes in the George Walter Vincent Smith art museum in Springfield for a dozen years and has been teaching privately for over 15 years.
