Matt Klos is a painter of interiors and plein-air landscapes that have taken him to Stonington, Maine, New Brunswick, Canada, and the Brittany region of France. His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally and he was awarded Individual Artist Awards from the Maryland State Arts Council in both 2012 and 2008. His work was selected for a solo exhibition award at the Prince Street Gallery in Chelsea, NY in 2011 and he received an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant in 2001. He teaches drawing and painting at Anne Arundel Community College and took a sabbatical in fall 2013 to work on two projects: the first project is to create paintings of the dozens of dilapidated buildings at the Fort Howard Veteran’s Facility in Edgemere, MD and the second project entails curating an exhibition entitled “A Lineage of American Perceptual Painting,” highlighting the works of the great American painter Edwin Dickinson and the subsequent generations of painters whom he influenced and inspired. The exhibition will be on view in the Mitchell Art Gallery at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD.
