Kathleen Elsey & Kamp GalleryKamp Gallery Kathleen Elsey  Celebrating Eight Years
Partnering in Chicago

“We are pleased to be exhibiting Kathleen Elsey in our gallery and are dedicated to the Fauve movement. Kathleen Elsey’s presence in the contemporary California art community is entering its fourth decade with vigor and creativity. Her fauve paintings have been exhibited coast to coast, from San Francisco, the Albuquerque Museum to the Salmagundi Club and National Association of Women Artists’ Gallery in New York City and now in Chicago with Kamp Gallery.” Barbara Vahlkamp, Kamp Galley Director


Kamp Gallery Barbara Vahlkamp

Kamp Gallery has an impressive collection of historical paintings and now an extensive collection of California Fauve paintings including Kathleen Elsey.“ Just as artistic tastes have changed, Kamp Gallery’s  offerings have also evolved. The painting gallery initially reflected Nicholas’ affection for period pieces done before 1950, including those by secondary American and European painters of note. Thanks in major part to Barbara’s work, and because younger clientele want edgier art, Kamp Gallery also shows modernists, contemporary painters, abstract expressionists and the work of movements like the New Fauves. Excerpt from "Eyes only for Art" by art critic Alan P. Henry
