William Kelley Gallery

 “William Kelley is an artist of remarkable expressive powers.  He possesses a guileless authenticity and deeply felt power to portray his personal passions in paint.  He connects directly with his enthusiasms and thus his joy is manifest in the work.  As an expatriate American painting in Tuscany, he brings a New world honesty and sincerity to the immemorial splendors-the light and color swarming landscapes of Italy: land of dreams and visions of delight.”                                                                                                           David Cleveland                                                                                                                    ArtNews and Author
