There is a new display of ARGH Gallery at 814 Em St. in downtown Manchester. The Beacon Building is happy to continue exhibiting my works and there is now a collection of seven pieces to go along with the continuing display of the "Waves" painting. Beacon Building is open to the public from 7am to 7:30pm Monday through Friday. The paintings are all of this year and accompany this statement: "SINCE THIS HORRIBLE PANDEMIC SHUTTERED PEOPLE BACK IN MARCH I'VE BEEN PAINTING. THE WORLD HAD BECOME FULL OF ANXIETY AND FEAR AND MY FIRST INSTINCT WAS TO PAINT THOSE STRESSED-OUT EMOTIONS ON CANVAS. IN MY MIND, IN THE NEWS, IN THE WORLD OUT THERE EVERYTHING SEEMED BLEAK, HEAVY, DARK. BUT IT TURNED OUT WHAT I NEEDED TO PAINT WAS ESCAPE. I WANTED BRIGHT COLOR AND ENERGETIC LIGHT AND JOYOUS MOVEMENT AND SOMETHING ALIVE. THESE ARE SOME OF THE PAINTINGS FROM THIS YEAR. I GUESS THEY ARE FLORAL THEMED THOUGH NO ACTUAL FLOWER SPECIES IS DIRECTLY REPRODUCED. I SEE THEM AS GARDEN PAINTINGS OR LANDSCAPES OR SPACE-SCAPES BUT ULTIMATELY ESCAPES. I HOPE OTHERS ENJOY THEM TOO."
ARGH Gallery is no longer at 416 Chestnut St., Manchester NH. ARGH Gallery now exists wherever we may be able to "pop it up," and also on this website. It was a very exciting 2-year adventure of foisting non-usual art upon the public. Thank you for the support of the brick and mortar space. Moving forward this site will continue to show what's happening with my, Kevin Kintner's, art. Over the first half of 2020 the world has gone through some changes. In March I had 3 shows set to run with works of mine. Fortunately some people got to see the work as one of the shows was in storefront windows in downtown Rochester, NH and i hope those who were out walking on Main St. getting their exercise during "stay-at-home" enjoyed these paintings. Above is "Fleury sumthin" from Summer of 2019.
WAVES is a 4ft h X 8ft long painting completed at the end of January 2020. It is now in the atrium window of the Beacon building on 814 Elm St. The painting was finished before the year really showed us what it was going to be about. Now you can view this alongside seven other paintings that hopefully inspire some optimism in viewers. Please come and see these between 7am and 7:30pm Monday - Friday at 814 Beacon St. Manchester, NH.
This is the display case at the Beacon Building where "Waves" currently lives and with me in the picture you may have a sense of scale. Just to the right of this case is a storefront that now holds another seven pictures completed in this year of pandemonium.
