Starting next month, Ke Francis will be featured in Allyn Gallup Comtemporary Art gallery’s new exhibit, “Paperwork.” His hand-colored engravings will be displayed along with works by three other artists from December 1 – 31, 2011.

Ke Francis is a narrative artist who has been actively producing artwork for more than 40 years. He is a tenured professor at UCF where he has served as department chair and the College of Arts and Humanities dean of research. He and his wife, Mary, are the co-owners of Hoopsnake Press, a fine art press that publishes books and prints. His book works, paintings, prints, photographs and sculptures are in numerous public and private collections, including The Getty Museum, National Gallery, National Museum of American Art, High Museum, New Orleans Museum of Fine Art, San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art, Yale / Sterling Memorial Library, Van-Pelt Dietrich Collection, and The Polaroid Collection.

“All of the pieces of art in this exhibit are priced at $1,000 or less and lend themselves to holiday gift-giving,” says Allyn Gallup.

The gallery is located at 1288 N. Palm Ave. in Sarasota, FL. For more information about this exhibit, call 941-366-2454 or visit the gallery’s website.
