Renowned artist Thomas Kegler is a self-taught painter, producer, and certified teacher residing in Western New York. He is internationally recognized as an Associate Living Master by the Art Renewal Center and Master Roycroft Artisan member of the Salmagundi Club, and is also a painting instructor for the Grand Central Atelier (New York City) and Senior Fellow with the Hudson River Fellowship. Kegler's traditional oil paintings of landscapes, still lifes, and figures draw from the Old Masters approach to the canvas. His expressions of life’s subtleties are guided by revisiting these processes and techniques in light of classical and contemporary subjects.
Kegler's work has been shown internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions at many distinguished galleries and museums. His paintings reside in several prominent collections throughout the world. His work and process have been featured in notable magazines and publications, including American Arts Quarterly. Kegler is committed to the consistent growth and development of his skills and to the promotion of art education with an emphasis on classical techniques. He has self-produced an instructional documentary video focused on traditional plein air painting approaches. Kegler regards the act of painting as an opportunity to celebrate the beauty of God’s creation: portraying temporal experiences as poetic statements.
Kegler is represented by Beacon Fine Art Gallery (Red Bank, NJ), Cavalier Galleries (Greenwich, CT), Edgartown Art Gallery (Martha's Vineyard, MA), Meibohm Fine Arts (East Aurora, NY), Oxford Gallery (Rochester, NY), and Tree’s Place Gallery (Orleans, MA).
