Art exhibit featuring pieces painted by man known as ‘the last living big artist’ debuting in Waco

WACO, Texas (KWTX) – An art exhibition with pieces painted by a German man known as “the last living big artist” is debuting in downtown Waco Thursday night and will remain on display for Central Texans to enjoy the month of April.

Peter Rober Keil painted alongside greats like Joan Miro, Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Basquiat.

His latest exhibition called “Color the Dark” is opening Thursday evening at Falcon & Owl Antique Store in downtown Waco and will feature the mesmerizing colors and bold strokes that define Keil’s unique style.

Jill Barrett is the owner of Falcon & Owl and first noticed Peter’s work at the Roundtop Antique Show where she was a dealer.

She says getting this collection to Central Texas is big.

“I think it’s a huge deal because Peter Keil is one of the last living big artists that worked alongside many legends,” Barrett said.

The highly collectable work of Peter is found all over the world from museums to exhibits, galleries and even private collections of celebrities as well as major art collectors.

“I always say ‘go big or go home’ so if I’m going to open a gallery, I’m going to bring a famous artist in, and I got lucky and got to do that this time with Peter Keil’s work,” Barrett said.

The VIP event will take place Thursday evening from 6-8 p.m. at Falcon & Owl which is located at 210 South 5th Street.

The $50 tickets can be purchased at the door and include food, drinks, and entertainment.

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a collection of this size, especially in Texas, and so I just hope that everyone gets the opportunity to come see it and enjoy his work and his legend,” Barrett said.

“It’s really a piece of history.”

The exhibition will run the entire month of April.
