Judge Named 2018 Art Exhibition

Stapleton Kearns (American, b. 1952) studied in the atelier of R. H. Ives Gammell (American 1893–1981). Gammell was a student of major American impressionist William Paxton, and Ives passed on his art training to nearly 40 students over a period of almost 50 years. Kearns was a beneficiary of Gammell’s private instruction conducted at the historic Fenway studios in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1983 Kearns moved to Rockport, Massachusetts, and had the opportunity to know and learn from the older generation of artists who had made that area famous as an art colony. Kearns was elected president of the Rockport Art Association and held that position for five years.

For nearly ten years Kearns has lived in New Hampshire, and, writes a blog about painting that receives thousands of visitors each month. He also teaches workshops across the country.

We are thrilled to have Stapleton as our 2018 Judge.
