Jeffrey Reed, Philadelphia Landscape Painter


Here is another video from local Philadelphia filmmaker John Thornton, who is doing a series of short films featuring Philadelphia artists. I just couldn't resist sharing this with you.  John is interviewing landscape painter Jeffery Reed who is discussing his experiences painting in Ireland, and sharing his work and methods.  Jeffrey shows his work at Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia, and taught a landscape painting workshop at Studio Incamminati last summer.
