Featured Artist

Calvin deRuyter

Calvin deRuyter

Calvin deRuyter is a painter whose primary medium of choice is watercolor. Nontraditional in his approach to the medium, he achieves his often vibrant colors by doing all of the mixing of his watercolors on the surface he is working on—whether it be paper, canvas, or canvas board—and shuns the use of a palette to mix his pigments. Although he paints many different subjects, he is best known for his impressionistic landscapes reminiscent of the midwest.

Eddie Hamilton is a MN Original!

Posted on Thursday, March 13, 2014

Eddie Hamilton is a MN Original!

Eddie Hamilton’s work is primarily acrylic on canvas but also includes mixed media on wood panel. His direct and playful work represents the emotion, energy, and interactions of people in their communities.

Eddie’s paintings are developed after research and reflection on the concept to be represented. Currently, his work is the result of studying gentrification and interpersonal human urban contact. Acrylics, ink, and crayon are used because of the ability to quickly apply and layer these materials resulting in a continuous flow of work in one sitting.

His visual representation of people and the urban setting has been greatly influenced by his childhood in California. His fascination with communities and the urban life is a result of living in vastly different areas as a child and an adult search for a sense of a community to call his own.

Eddie will be featured on MN Original on the following dates, times and channels:

3/23/2014 – 10:00 PM on Channel 2
3/23/2014 – 6:00 PM on Channel 2
