Oils and Watercolors by Ken Stetz featured in August

Summer has always been a time to meet artists who are visiting the area. A number of years ago, Ken Stetz was one of those visitors. Ken visits family in Public Landing so I was pleased to know he did not forget Bishop’s Stock and has now returned to be our featured artist for August. While this August is not like any other, we are so pleased to have Ken’s oils and watercolors here for virtual showing on our Facebook Page and our website.

Ken is a a visual artist who works professionally as an artist and illustrator in the heart of the New Jersey shore. The focus of his work is marine art – mostly the oceans and bays of the mid Atlantic region. It was no surprise to have the coastal bays and ocean along the Worcester County coastline hold his interest. When here he has spent time researching the area and observing things like working boats, shore breaks and sunrises. He sketches and photographs everything that catches his eye which gives his paintings a feeling of naturalism and realism. It is no surprise to learn that Ken is a member of the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) and had Surf Patrol accepted into their 18th National Exhibition that was to have traveled to 5 cities. Check Ken’s website to see this painting and to learn about his commissions and his published illustrations.
