"I’d like to think of myself as someone who combines the history of art with the art of our times. That may seem like an obvious path, but for some artists I’m not so sure." - Kim Keever

Kim Keever studied Engineering at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA and worked for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for a brief time. Keever became a full-time artist in the mid 70s. His background in science and engineering has aided him with many constructions concerning his work and the general thought process that is required of a scientist. Keever's landscapes are often associated, though not intentionally, with the Hudson River School and the German Romantic painters.


Kim Keever lives and works in New York City. His work is in numerous collections, including: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, Virgina; Chrysler Museum, Norfolk, Virginia; Nassau County Museum of Fine Art, Roslyn, New York; Patterson Museum, Patterson, New Jersey; George Washington University Gallery, Washington DC; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, Missouri and Elgin Community College, Elgin, Illinois.
