The exhibit features several large scale oil paintings on canvas, with a focus on the representation of the human figure. The artist says that the primary influence for his subject matter is everyday life and the sometimes hidden feelings that people experience every day.

“When I paint, I try to capture an emotion and feeling that you wouldn’t normally see,” said Humphrey. “Painting is an emotional experience for me, so much so that it’s hard to put into words the way I work. Sometimes I have a conversation with myself and shape a feeling. Other times I just let go and let my subconscious take over where color and brush are the medium I use to communicate.”

“I think that one of the things that viewers will find striking about Kwanza’s work is the loose spontaneous brushstrokes and his keen eye for color,” said Gallery Director Jim Norris. “I’ve been a big admirer of his art for about quite some time and am very excited to share it with our community.”

“Paintings by Kwanza Humphrey” will run from December 20. The gallery is located in the Frey Administrative Building. All NCMC students and the public are invited to visit the exhibit.
Regular hours at the Rider Art Gallery are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, as well as selected weekend and evening hours by appointment. For more information, please contact Jim Norris at 359-3948 ext. 1345 at NCMC.
