Spring 2018 Exhibit


Featuring: Jeff Chapman-Crane, Realism

Jeff is a notable realist who has shown and sold his astounding paintings in New York and other large cities. His work is finely detailed with subtle hues that are surprising up close as from far away.


It was a delight to host Jeff and his wife Carmen who helps him in every way. They are a team for his astounding master works of realism, and they are a team in all aspects of family and their life together.


Their home gallery is in Eolia, Kentucky.
