Carl Bretzke is a Minnesota painter known for both his plein air and studio work, including realistic nocturnes, cityscapes, snow scenes and narrative landscapes.

His paintings will once again be on display at Grenning Gallery in Sag Harbor, NY this May with a show opening on Saturday May 8, 2021. Carl’s original yet refined interpretation of American life is both cinematic and yet sometimes gritty. Some have likened his work to that of Edward Hopper for putting his finger on that somewhat melancholic feeling found in celebrated American realism.

A complete biography for Carl Bretzke can be found on his website, carlbretzke.com.

Carl’s work at the upcoming Grenning Gallery May show will be paired with paintings by Kelly Carmody, a Boston realist painter. Carmody is a classically trained portrait artist currently moving towards a looser construction of the real world, featuring compelling interiors and harmoniously colorful impressionistic florals.
