Opera in the Pines is delighted to announce featured artist for Bar Crawl Bohème, Brian Krebs.
Brian is a local artist from Warren and, like Marcello, is also a painter of houses. He is the owner and operator of Krebs Paint & Design LLC, an independent painting contractor, and is artistically represented by the Landing Gallery in Rockland and Aperto Fine Art in Bridgton. He is currently working on a series of oil paintings focused on water, with a previous portfolio of landscapes and portraits. In 2013 he had a solo exhibition in Augusta through the Maine Arts Commission’s Art in the Capitol program, and his work is in private collections across the country. He has also recently been contracted to reproduce one of his paintings as a large glass mosaic installation for an international client. To learn more about Brian, visit briankrebsstudio.com.
