SHELDON KREVIT - A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY by JOHNES RUTA, Independent Curator

Sheldon Krevit’s work is a form of meditation. He leaves his ego outside his studio door in order to create paintings and drawings that are contemplative, textural, material essences. His interest is in glimpsing and manifesting that which is timeless. For him, the microscopic and the cosmic are part of one continuum.

After graduation from both the Philadelphia College of Art (UArts), and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in the mid-seventies, Krevit returned to his hometown of New Haven, Connecticut, for fifteen months. His sights were set on New York City. During this time, Krevit’s work gained rapid recognition. First, he had several pieces selected for a traveling exhibition that included the likes of Robert Motherwell, Robert Natkin, and William Bailey. Then, one of his drawings won the award for “Best In Show” at Fairfield University and was purchased for the Town of Fairfield Collection that includes work by Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, and Joseph Albers.

Shortly after setting up his studio in the Fulton Fish Market, in Lower Manhattan, Krevit was part of the "New Work, Nieuw Amsterdam" show, in October of 1979, curated by Peter Frank, that included work by Robert Longo, and Cindy Sherman. Less than two years later, his solo exhibition in SoHo was featured in a full page essay in ARTS Magazine

In mid 1981, a combination of the gentrification of the fish market, and a need to help his aging parents in Connecticut, resulted in Krevit’s return to New Haven. There, he continued to paint and exhibit his work to favorable reviews from The New York TimesThe New Haven Register, and The New Haven Advocate, and was part of the “Papyrus Abtractus” show, in Westport, with Richard Tuttle. Krevit was cited for both his art, and his community service in the cause of arts and culture, in featured articles in New Haven Arts. He also shared his expertise with hundreds of students at the grade school level, for which he received a Commendation from The New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and taught, briefly, at the college level. His studio was a popular stop for collectors in the region, and his work is represented in public, private, and corporate collections.

In 2004, Krevit realized a long-time dream of moving to Santa Fe. Now, after nearly ten unforgettable years in Santa Fe, with exhibitions in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Dallas, and Memphis, the artist has returned to his home state of Connecticut. There is no substitute for being in the presence of his work. Studio visits are welcomed.
