Visiting Artist Gallery Features Kim Keene '87

We are excited to continue our partnership with Cedar Point Club’s Visiting Artist Gallery.

From now through May, artwork from alumna Kim Keene '87 will be on display and for sale at Cedar Point. When her paintings are sold, 35 percent of the proceeds will benefit the NSA Arts Program, and 65 percent will be paid to the artist. "This show is dedicated to my dad (Al Keene) who was a member of Cedar Point for as long as I can remember. He loved everything black and white as well as the game of golf, this club and its members," said Kim.

In addition to the Visiting Artist Gallery partnership, Nansemond-Suffolk Academy and Cedar Point Club have also partnered to offer a Saints Membership Plan, which offers discounted club membership rates for NSA families. To inquire about the Cedar Point Club Saints Membership Plan or to visit Cedar Point to see Kim's work, please call (757) 238-2275 or visit www.cedarpointclub.com.



Kim Keene '87

Kim Keene is passionate about art. Although her life has, up until now, taken many interesting turns, her experiences have informed the creative she is today. Originally from Portsmouth, VA, she’s a 1993 graduate of Virginia Wesleyan. Shortly after graduation, she relocated to North Carolina’s Outer Banks, where she opened a small frame shop on the Manteo waterfront. It was there that she began to truly recognize the beauty in living next to the ocean, and her work began to reflect that.

In 2010, she relocated to Croatia, where she took on the demanding role of a diplomatic spouse. Her painting was never far away, though, and she taught art classes to other foreign spouses. While there, she spent countless hours sailing the Adriatic Sea (another of her passions), where the eye-popping maritime environment further informed her work.

In 2014, after returning to Hampton Roads, she opened the Starving Artist Café in Norfolk. Originally a paint frame shop, the café became the center of a thriving local community of artists where Kim held paint nights on a regular basis. Eventually, the Starving Artist transformed into an actual café, and Kim opened the walls for local artists to display and sell their work. Today, Kim is focusing solely on her art and gaining new inspiration from her home on Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay.
