Dr. Vincent Keesee Exhibit at GMA

A one-man exhibit featuring the works of Dr. Vincent Keesee is open in the lobby of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village. The exhibit will remain at the Museum for one month. Dr. Keesee’s painting is figurative and usually reflects some aspects of the southern culture and environment. Using his unique eye and ear for ‘truisms’ found above and beneath the surface of everyday life, he captures the joy and energy of life with movement and color. His oil paintings show images of people and rural scenes.
