Bill Gravatt Memorial Exhibit Continues in November

10/22/2012 —

LATE ARTIST MASTERED
NEO-IMPRESSIONIST AND DIVISIONISM TECHNIQUES

The exhibit of works of the late artist Bill Gravatt continues during November in the Penn State New Kensington Art Gallery. The memorial exhibit features more than 35 paintings from Michael Karkowsky’s collection of Gravatt’s works.

A New Kensington native, Gravatt died in 2000 at the age of 81. Working mostly with oil on canvas, Gravatt's paintings reflect his neo-impressionist and divisionism techniques and philosophies. Neo-impressionists favor modern urban scenes, landscapes and seashores. Divisionism is characterized by the separation of colors into individual dots or patches which interact optically. Gravatt earned critical praise for his work.
