Michael Anderson - Oil
Michael Anderson, a Belleville, IL-based painter, established his studio practice over 35 years ago and his collectors hail from around the U.S. Michael’s paintings have been exhibited in many venues including the Rice Gallery in Kansas City, MO and the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, MA. His work was chosen as the poster art for the 2021 season of Opera Edwardsville. Although he is known for his plein air paintings and colorful studio works, Michael is also a 2021 Belleville Mural Project artist. Regarding his recent switch to a brighter, modern color palette, Michael says, "It is interesting to see familiar subjects in a new way; using expressive colors has opened yet another path for me to follow in my art."
