Kefauver Fine Arts
About the Artist


Will Kefauver returned to painting after many years as an illustrator, then graphic designer, then art director and executive in the publishing industry.

He has studied at Whittier College and the Katonah Arts Center and has both studied and been an instructor at the School of Visual Arts. His course of study has included instruction from Robert Speier, Milton Glaser, William P. Duffy and Jock MacRae.

Among the artists who've influenced him most heavily, Kefauver cites Corot for his use of atmospheric perspective, Frank Benson for the energy of his composition and Wolf Kahn, who can find color anywhere.

Kefauver's work has been selected for appearance in juried shows across the country. He has received awards from the National Society of Artists, the Lake Wales Arts Council, the Art Director's Club, the American Institute of Graphic Arts and The One Show. His work has been featured in Art Direction, the North County News, Lincoln County Magazine, Advertising Techniques and Idea magazines.

Will is a past President of the Pemaquid Group of Artists in Bristol, Maine. He is a signature member of the National Society of Artists, and an Elected Member and past Vice President of the Kent Art Association.

He can often be found along a roadside or in a field — painting in oils, en plein air. His work depicts the moods of the landscapes of New York and New England, from the apple trees of a Westchester farm to the beaches of Martha's Vineyard, or the rocky shores of Maine.
