Open Fields is a collection of work by American painter Drew Hires.

An award winning art director and designer, Hires worked in the publishing

world for over three decades. At the same time, he built a large body of work as a

fine artist. Many of his images are informed by his work in modern media, but there

are strong connections to nature, to the primitive and to material.

Public showings of his paintings have been fairly rare. Hires had a number of

one-man shows in Atlantic City, NJ (his point of origin) in the early 1980s, and was

a regular contributor at The Emerging Collector (an alternative gallery in lower

Manhattan) in the late 80s and early 90s. For the most part, he has kept a low

profile, far off the gallery grid.

A pop-up show with his brother and fellow painter Christian, drew some attention

in the summer of 2018, resulting in a January 2019 exhibit at the Lapham Gallery in

Glens Falls, NY.

Thanks for looking at the work.
