During the month of June, new Studios on the Park resident artist David Kreitzer, who is celebrating his 50th Jubilee Year as a professional artist, gives a special showing of Paso Robles oak hills and vineyards, and oil paintings of the “Nishigoi” koi from images of the historic Paso Robles Inn koi ponds.
A Contemporary Realist, David Kreitzer paints in the tradition of the old masters, and is known for his raking and gloaming light and water paintings. Kreitzer has an impressive body of work. He executed two covers for Atlantic Magazine, and was the featured artist in both the American Artist Magazine and the book "The Sacred Landscape.” He has been listed for many years in "Who's Who in American Art," "Who's Who in California," and "Who's Who in America." His "Tristan and Isolde" and "Siegfried" posters, commissioned by Seattle Opera in 1981, are still collected worldwide. Kreitzer’s lauded paintings are highly sought after and are amongst reviews and collections extending far beyond the central coast. The San Francisco Chronicle’s Thomas Albright, in his review of David Kreitzer's first solo exhibit at Maxwell Galleries in San Francisco, stated that "Kreitzer demonstrates how much poetic intensity the old tradition can still contain."
