Promoting the visual arts & business of our local community

About Meadville Fine Arts . . .

 

Tim & Mary Kirk are the owners of Meadville Fine Arts and have lived in this community since 1980.

 

Tim has been involved in the business since it's beginning in 2002. In May 2011 they both retired but decided to buy the business as a retirement project to stay busy. Tim didn't want to let his customers down that depended on him to produce giclée prints. Mary took on the bookkeeping duties and although she only is there a couple days a week, she enjoys meeting and talking with customers.

For his personal work Tim enjoys portraits and especially masculine portraits. His work normally starts with a digital photograph then he adds a combination of editing, painting techniques, colors and textures. Many of his pieces use several photos to produce the rich textures and depth.
