Rockland marine painter to demonstrate his craft at local school

In a rare opportunity to learn about marine painting from a specialist — and see a new work of art take shape in real time — an audience will look on as renowned painter Michael Keane executes an oil painting on stage while explaining his process and artistry.

Keane, a graduate of Rockland High School who studied with master painters such as Marshall Joyce of Kingston, achieved national status in the 1980s when his own mastery of the traditional genre of the marine oil painting was discovered by art collectors. Since then, his original paintings have been snapped up by buyers, and his solo shows on Nantucket are considered events in the art world.
