Stephen Kekule and Don Schwartz - Featured Exhibitors for October

"Stories Through Pictures - Two Perspectives" is the title of the October featured exhibit at the gallery. It opens on October 3 and continues through November 2, with an Artists Reception on Saturday, October 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. The two gentlemen behind the "stories" and the "pictures" are Stephen Kekule and Don Schwartz.

Steve paints with acrylics, usually on board, and is meticulous about every aspect of his paintings. He studied architecture, which is evident in the images he creates; but beyond the imagery there is a story to be told, or at least implied, and most often left to the viewer to complete.

The stories and pictures that Don has to tell are done with photography - black and white photography. His love of nature is apparent; the viewer can feel the temperature of the image, can listen to the quiet of the moment, can taste and smell the salty sea air, and sense the approaching storm.
