I’m especially excited to share tonight’s post as it features two amazing friends of mine, Jeff Kraus & Kelley Howley.
Kelley is a sensational interiors enthusiast & shopkeeper of @huntandgathergr and @jeff.kraus is a wildly talented drummer & painter who is quickly emerging in the art scene, both locally and nationally. They have recently come together to create a collaborative space that highlights and showcases each of their stunning works- A gallery for Jeff’s paintings & a modern-vintage showroom/retail spot for the on point curations at Hunt & Gather.
Now go. Check it out for yourself! Because this picture doesn’t even scratch the surface of all that exists in their new space! @michaelnewsted #grandrapids #outwithlocals #huntandgathergr #jeffkraus (at Hunt & Gather)

The UICA is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting artwork by local artist Jeff Kraus in the 3rd Floor Sales Gallery, the work will be on display from June 27th - September 27th. Kraus’ large abstracted paintings achieve an explorative use of color and texture, with a concentration on the surface of the painting The paintings read as fractured landscapes, populated by a multitude of structural forms, a signature of Kraus’ refined style. This event is free to the public with all sales of the work to benefit the exhibitions programming at the UICA.

Please join the UICA at a reception on the 3rd floor for Jeff, Thursday June 27th from 5-7pm. Light refreshments and drinks will be served.
