About the Artist

Hopewell painter Ken McIndoe has taught at the Art Students League of New York since 1981 and has also taught landscape workshops in Ireland, South Korea, Alaska, New York and New Jersey.  “In the action is the discovery. I hope to provide visual ideas to feed that action—ideas about drawing, color, space, form and rhythm. I think the artist should work both from nature and from imagination—from the outside and the inside. You have to be guided by your knowledge and intuition, and aspire to a vision of a world that has no intention of waiting for you,” notes McIndoe.

“I studied with Robert Beverly Hale and Sidney Dickinson at the League and at the same time began to work outside in the urban and rural landscape. Those experiences continue to be a great source of discovery. They give me the chance to dare to paint.”

McIndoe was born in London and lived in Liberia and England before coming to New York. He received the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowships in 1987 and 2000. 

He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the New Jersey State Artists Exhibition at the State Museum in Trenton, the New Jersey State Fellowships exhibition, and with the Street Painters. His paintings are included in many private collections.
