Keith Allyn Spencer
October 25 - December 9, 2018
Peeler Art Center, Visual Arts Gallery

KEITH ALLYN SPENCER, was born and raised in the American desert Southwest border region. An emphasis with the middle letter of my name helps diminish the perpetual mix-ups with similar named persons: Kevin, Karl, Kurt, Kenny, Kanye, and Pete. Currently, I reside with my family (wife, 2 sons, and a black Wiener dog mix) in Granville, Ohio navigating towards long-term job security, cul-de-sacs, and organic groceries.

Kent received his MFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design (2011) and a BFA from the University of Texas at El Paso (2003). Recent group exhibitions consist of Skylab Gallery (Columbus), Present Company (NYC), New Galerie at Yves Klein Archives (Paris), Simon Oldfield Gallery (London), and BigMedium (Austin). Recent solo shows include Ditch Projects (Oregon), The Composing Rooms (Berlin), Welcome Screen (London), Juicys Gallery (NYC), OFG.XXX (Dallas), Target (Indiana), and Domino's Pizza (Rhode Island).

“Me As a Parent”
Keith Allyn Spencer explores painting expansively. Party table covers, fabric softener sheets, clay hardened by heat, fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion, and junk drawer items rendezvous. Spencer’s works catalyze ways to meander, poke around, test, & trespass.

Funding for this exhibition is generously provided by the Efroymson Family Fund.
