Noted Detroit painter Tom Parish brings to Robert Kidd Gallery a collection of paintings that abound with the essence of Venice! Inspired by shimmering canals and architectural beauty of Italy's Serenissima (the old serene one), Parish's stylized realist paintings are constructed from blocks of sturdy modernist color. The shimmer of rolling water, depths of captivating linear vistas and the classicism of craft are elements moored to the heart of Parish's timeless imagery.
In addition to a career of full time studio work Professor Emeritus Tom Parish taught painting at Way State University's school of art for over thirty years. Parish's works are represented in may important public, private and corporate collections both in United States and abroad. Please join us in celebrating this exciting exhibition of the artist's painting at Robert Kidd Gallery opening reception Friday, July 17th from 5:00 - 8:00 pm
