Kenny McKenna

Kenny McKenna’s painting subjects are widely diverse. Whether of rugged open lands, mountainous country, weathered barns, forgotten farmhouses, or compelling waters, they all share the inherent ingredient of the infusion of sunlight. McKenna paints exclusively in oils, creating an impressionistic style with texture and loose brushwork. His work elicits a sense of warmth and calmness, an open invitation to explore.

McKenna’s annual exhibits include Masters of the American West at the Autry Museum of the West, Los Angeles, California; Small Works Great Wonders at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Night of Artists at the Briscoe Western Art Museum, San Antonio, Texas.

McKenna has been commissioned by the Friends of the Capitol along with the Oklahoma Arts Council and the Office of the Governor of the State of Oklahoma for an installation in spring of 2018 honoring the 100 years of the state capitol building.

Publications that have featured McKenna’s work are Art of the West, Southwest Art, and Western Art Collector. His work is represented by Collectors Covey, Dallas, Texas; Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Jackson, Wyoming; Settlers West in Tucson, Arizona; and the Howell Gallery, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
