Staff Pick: Charles Burchfield at Keny Galleries

Posted by Jackie Mantey | March 04, 2013 01:33 PM

Recommending a watercolor landscape by any other name would be lame, but this is Charles Burchfield, my friends. Burchfield was a preeminent American painter of the 20th century, and Keny Galleries in German Village opened a show of his works on Friday. The Ohio native once said, “Sometimes I think I am nearer to God during a thunderstorm than at any other time.” His favorite flower to paint was a weed (Queen Anne’s Lace) and his favorite time of year a downer (the muddy mess of a time between winter and spring).  His natural landscapes have a similar oddball quality to them. Don’t miss this opportunity to see them in person.
