News > Kevin LePrince is Featured Artist for 22nd Annual Gala at Huntsville Museum of Art

Heads Up

In February, Charleston artist Kevin LePrince will be honored as the featured artist the Huntsville Museum of Art Annual Gala and Art Auction. This prestigious opportunity is yet another jewel on the crown of LePrince’s professional painting career, which began in 2004.

Before 2004, this 1992 graduate of the University of South Carolina worked in economics as a vice-president of a major firm in the securities brokerage industry. After leaving the field to paint professionally, LePrince gained recognition as a member of Oil Painters of America, developed a good number of loyal collectors, and appeared in publications both local and across the country.

Le Prince now co-owns the Reinert LePrince Fine Art here in Charleston, and has been blessed to have representation in galleries across several states including Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Colorado. Locally his work is on display in The Ocean Room at The Sanctuary hotel on Kiawah Island as well as in the halls of the Wexford Plantation House in Hilton Head. His collectors value him for his audacious brush-stroke style in equine pieces, landscapes, and his new focus on “passage” works that play with how shadow forms and light effect the atmosphere of a subject.

Such a career has awarded LePrince the opportunity to be showcased in Huntsville, Alabama at an event to take place over the week of February 26 to March 2, 2013. With his work alongside other talented artists from around the country, LePrince will participate in both a live and silent auction after his work has been on display in the museum galleries beginning February 3rd. This special week includes more than the auctions though, offering a Gala luncheon, black tie dinner, and cocktail party.

So cheers from Art Mag to Kevin LePrince as he goes to celebrate this great honor in style. It is well deserved, and Charleston should be proud that a local is making such a success of his art.
