Eric Whitfield September 9th – October 14, 2023

Born in Austin, TX to artist parents, and raised in Upstate NY, Eric Whitfield has no formal art training but was always drawn to, and inspiried by, all things creative. His work is primarily contemporary abstract. It is colorful and honest. Over the years, Eric has participated in festivals, shows and pop-up gallery exhibits.

These days, Eric enjoys working out of a small, music filed studio at his home in Clinton, NY where he lives with his wife and three children and a very annoying cat. He is represented by the Mineral Point Gallery in Wisconsin, and the 4 Elements Studio in Utica, NY.

The Eric Whitefield Exhibit opens September 9 at the MVCA in Little Falls, NY. Join us for the Opening Reception, and take in Eric Whitefield’s beautiful work!
