Arcadia Fine Arts was founded in 1998 with the goal of creating a showcase for contemporary, representational artwork.
The gallery is internationally known for presenting acclaimed and distinguished painters including Malcolm T. Liepke, Jeremy Lipking, Ron Hicks, Daniel Sprick and many others. In addition to featuring established painters, the gallery takes great pride in providing a launching pad for younger, emerging artists who are poised to become tomorrow's masters.
The gallery is open seven days a week and is also a prominent exhibitor at many, international art fairs. Our website: www.arcadiacontemporary.com, is frequently updated and includes a full overview of one-person and group exhibitions as well as new arrivals to the gallery's inventory.

“Within the trappings of human experience, I consider my portraits as windows into the lives of my subjects, often presenting the subject in a state of intense and dignified stillness.” -Kerry Brooks An early passion for representational art led Kerry to travel to Eastern Europe to study at the Ukrainian Academy of Art in Kiev where students were encouraged to learn from the past by placing themselves within a wider structure of artistic tradition. She continued her studies at the Repin Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia, a city where painting, sculpture, architecture, and culture were combined to stunning effect, providing endless examples of beauty as a respected ideal. Additional study at the New York Academy of Art allowed the artist to enrich her work through a rigorous study of anatomy and classical techniques.
