Exhibit: "Trench Town Rock Experience"

Tuesday, August 15, 2017


Don't miss the resilient and vibrant Errol McKinson's original work! Born in the island capital Kingston, Jamaica, Mckinson was fascinated by the works of art that surrounded him at early age. His first experience with color was from a set of watercolor paints given to him by his father, Edgar McKinson. Throughout his early childhood years, Errol became extremely interested in Impressionism. Upon reading a book from the school’s library at Wolmers High School for Boys, he was introduced to the techniques of Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, and Edouard Manet. These masters still influence his work today.

As a “plein aír” painter and a practitioner of Impressionism and the Henry Hensche movement of Light and Color, Errol traveled to France to experience the origins first hand. Errol strives to present nature in its truest form. He specializes in oils, acrylics, and watercolors. These media bring to life the warm majesty of his experiences from “back home” in Jamaica and incorporate awe-inspiring visions of the beauty that surround him in the United States.

His body of work is represented in a total of ten series; The Trench Town Rock Experience, A Look at DC and Water Lilies at Giverny, just to name a few. These are mainly from life experiences throughout his travels as he captures nature at its best.
