Kevin Kuhne has a B.S. in Art Education from Suny New Paltz. He has been teaching Continuing Education courses at South Colonie School District for over 15 years. He also conducts workshops in watercolor and drawing independently and at Arlene’s Artists Supplies on Fuller Road.
Kevin is a Signature Member the Northeast Watercolor Society, showing annually in its members’ shows and its International Juried Exhibition in Kent, Ct.
He has also shown at the Adirondack National Exhibition of American Watercolors.
While watercolor is his main medium, he also works in mixed media constructions, which he usually shows at the annual “BUILT” show of the Historic Albany Foundation. Another construction was featured in the Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Regional at the Albany Institute of History and Art in 2014/2015.
My interest in local history, architecture, people, and conservation inspires and motivates my work. I pursue this interest with work as a Literacy Volunteer, volunteering with local school groups, and as a member of many local organizations, including the Historic Albany Foundation, Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy, Pine Hollow Arboretum, and the Friends of the Normanskill Farm, where I am a board member.
My teaching is my main impetus to paint, pushing me to constantly examine and explain the formal and technical problems of painting and design.
I also “hone my skills” each week with at least one drawing session from the live model.
