Illustrator and artist, Tom Kennedy, of Owensboro, Kentucky and Newburgh,
Indiana captures a depth of soul in his paintings that is reminiscent of the
old world era. On display in The Anne P. Baker Gallery from February 23 to
April 5, 2001 is REVIVING RENAISSANCE Paintings by Tom Kennedy.
Tom has produced award-winning work as an illustrator, graphic designer and
artist since 1976. His work has been commissioned by major corporations,
public institutions and individuals for its sensitive portraiture and montage
work involving people and animals. Some corporate clients of note include:
Bristol-Myers Squibb, National Diabetes Association, United Airlines, Sears
Roebuck and Company, Nursing Magazine, Merck and Company, Eli Lily, Escalade
Sports, Mead Johnson and Company, the Ports of Indiana, and Lenox China.
Tom Kennedy studied under renowned pastel artist Daniel Greene. Toms work is
quite reminiscent of the great masters who have been his inspiration and
source of his independent study. The flavor of the renaissance is clearly
seen in his paintings.
