Rural Kansas Art Featured At Walkabout Gallery

Posted 8/6/2013

By Jackie Nelson

Photographer and painter Neil Kerbs is this months featured artist at the Walkabout Gallery, located in the basement of the Hesston Wellness Center.

Kerbs said he has a life-long passion for scenery.

“I’ve liked looking out the car window since I was a child,” he said.

As a young adult, Kerbs’ family encouraged him to embrace art.

“My mother was an artist and I have been on-and-off since I was a teen. My dad was into photography,” he said.

Working in acrylic paint, Kerbs said the medium is very forgiving.

“The nice thing about acrylics, if you make a mistake, you can wait a couple minutes for it to dry, paint over it and it was like it was never there. Oils, you try that and you end up with muck,” he said.
