Calling all Ohio Artists | The 74 Annual May Show

Tom Hale

Kevin Buckland, 74 Annual May Show Juror

Kevin has always had a passion for the arts. His painting style has been strongly influenced by highly detailed, realistic    painters. He greatly appreciates the skill and discipline it takes  to produce that level of work. Born and raised in Knox County, Ohio; his painting inspiration comes from what he knows and enjoys the rural Ohio landscape. Mostly a studio painter, occasionally Kevin will venture outdoors to paint on location.

Kevin’s watercolor technique varies from dry brush, wet on wet, surface mixing, and various others that achieve the illusion of highly detailed  colorful paintings. Each painting begins by carefully selecting a subject matter that evokes a feeling or has some special meaning to him. After carefully studying the subject he considers all the elements needed for a successful painting. Composition, color and technique along with years of practice is the formula for all his paintings.

For over 30 years, Kevin and his wife, Pertain, own and operate Buckland Gillespie Design, an art and design studio offering creative  services to small and large companies. Buckland is a Signature member of the  Ohio Watercolor Society and Associate member of The   American Watercolor Society. He is past president of the Westerville Art League.  A member of and served as 2nd Vice President for The Central Ohio Watercolor Society. His paintings have won many awards. He and  his wife have donated time and services to promote art throughout Ohio.
