The Art of Peter Keil

A Retrospective

Continuing Exhibition: Open during First Friday
FEB 2, 2018 • 6PM – 9PM
at Gallery 131 (Located next door to The Bundy Museum)

Peter Keil is one of Germany’s best known contemporary painters. His expressive Paintings with their impressive color and dynamic shape are particularly popular. Keil mainly uses oil-based paints and a mixture of oil and acrylic on canvas. His repertoire focuses on the Human form. Keil is fascinated by people on the fringes of society, the stories of those who have been pushed too far. His inspiration is based on his view of man as an essentially social being.

Submissions from amateur enthusiasts, family historians, K-12 teachers, preservationists, high school and college students, professional historians, storytellers, librarians, and museum employees, are all enthusiastically welcome.

Financial assistance for travel may be available for those requiring it.

Perspectives on Broome County History Description:
The rich and complex history of Broome County has long attracted attention from a diverse array of researchers and citizens. In recent years, the area’s local history scene has become more accessible and vibrant than ever. Adding to well-drawn biographies of notable residents and surveys of important institutions, recent work has examined local ethnic and racial history, women’s experiences, environments and ecologies, class relations, art and architecture, social movements, immigrants and immigration, and indigenous life, among many other topics.

Yet, researchers and audiences interested in these various threads of local history have often remained disconnected. This one-day conference seeks to gather those threads together and start new conversations by providing an opportunity to share work on Broome County history across multiple fields, perspectives, and methods. This event will be free and open to the public.

The Bundy Museum of History and Art is one of the Binghamton areas many cultural institutions dedicated to preserving and promoting the area’s creativity and history. The multi-building campus is anchored by the Victoria era-Bundy House (added to the National Historic Register in 2014), built for early IBM pioneer Harlow Bundy and his wife. The Museum also features three art galleries, a collection of time clocks, the only permanent Rod Serling exhibit, the area’s only photo lab, and most recently a low-power radio station, WBDY. Tours are offered Tuesday to through Saturday. Many exhibits and galleries are free of charge.
