  • M Gallery of Fine Art SE LLC welcomes you to the Charleston art event of the season November 1, 2012 at 7 p.m. Located at Hibernian Hall, 105 Meeting Street, and featuring demonstrations by five world renowned figurative painters. Thomas Reis, Lynn Sanguedolce, Bryce Cameron Liston, Kevin Beilfuss, and Michelle Dunaway will paint five models creating five great paintings that will be raffled at evenings end. American Art Collector Editor Joshua Rose and Charlestons Art Mag Publisher Olivia Pool will serve as Emcees for the event. The black-tie optional event will serve a low country buffet and champagne catered by Granvilles Catering. For those who wish to dance, live music will be performed by local jazz artists, The James Slater Trio. According to M Gallery owner Maggie Kruger, Each model will be ornately costumed, propped and staged with Chinese and French Antiques provided by respected Antique Dealer, Cheryl Burke, of Sarasota, Florida, and we are using a great production company from Chicago, Rose Freeman. The painters are painting at the highest level of any painters in the world. Our models are spectacular, the props and staging lovely. These painters impart tremendous knowledge when they paint: Part technical instruction, part art history. Concludes Kruger, This is a must attend for collectors and painters alike.

    Kevin Beilfuss After graduating from Illinois State Univer-sity and the American Academy of Art, Kevin set out on a free-lance illustration ca-reer which lasted thirteen years. Working mainly in the editorial area of illustration, his work consisted mostly of paintings for book covers and magazines. Some of his clients included: Penguin Publishing, Houghton Mif-flin, Harlequin, Signs of the Times, Guide-posts, Readers Digest, and Golf Digest. "I had always dreamed of becoming an

    illustrator," explains the artist. "But the demands of painting some-one else's ideas finally took it's toll. I decided that life is too short and that I had to paint from my heart. We're only given one chance at life, and I had to paint what was important to me. What's impor-tant to me", says Kevin, "is that I try to capture a little of what God has already created, in each of my paintings. One can obvi-ously see the beauty in God's creation in the landscape, but for me it is even more profound when I see and experience that beauty in people. There is always something new and awe-inspiring to dis-cover when painting the human figure." Kevin's award winning artwork can be seen at galleries throughout the U.S. Kevin has won the 'Peoples Choice Award' and an 'Award for Excellence' at the OPA Eastern Regional Exhibitions in 2008, and 2009. He most recently received the Award for Excel-lence in Figurative Painting at the 2010 OPA National Exhibition, and the Gold Medal for his painting 'What Dreams May Come' at the 2010 OPA Eastern Regional Exhibition. Leading workshops throughout the US, Kevin uses his ability as a teacher to help artists gain an understanding of how to 'see' as an artist, and sharing his knowledge to help students improve their sills. Kevin resides in the Chicago area with his wife Janice, and his son Drew.
