Seth Haverkamp’s Fireflies featured in International Artist Magazine


FRANKLIN— Outstanding portraitist and gallery artist Seth Haverkamp has received another recognition for one of his paintings. Fireflies, a portrait of his niece, is featured in the Master Showcase in the newest edition of International Artist Magazine along with three other master works. The narrative is directly from Seth himself and describes the painting's inspiration and execution. Fireflies was at the gallery only a short time before moving to a new home by an eager collector. Previously Fireflies was a finalist in the 2017 International Portrait Competition, the annual juried competition presented by the Portrait Society of America.

A collection of Seth’s portraits, most in his distinctive style that blends intimacy and mystery, are on view together at Haynes Galleries in Franklin. The paintings are careful observations of individuals, made with bright colors and usually featuring unexpected accessories like a crown made of twigs or paper cranes. The elements all come together to create enchanting images. The paintings have earned Seth lots of acclaim from magazines and institutions over the years as well as made him a sought after commissioned portrait artist.
