Brian Keeler: The Light of Nature, The Nature of Light

Sunrise or sunset? Town or country? Light or color? No need to choose. Brian Keeler brings it all to The Nature of Light, The Light of Nature, opening August 5 at Butternut Gallery and Second Story Books.

Everyone is welcome at a reception for the artist that Saturday from 4-6 p.m. That's the weekend of the Blueberry Festival, so make an afternoon of it!

Keeler's recent paintings draw inspiration from the beauty of rural Pennsylvania and the Finger Lakes, where townscapes and landscapes evoke a sense of history and locale.

Keeler said, "These paintings are interpretations of light on the American scene. My signature palette reflects the harmonious light unique to our area. The plein air works show the spontaneity of composing directly at the source, while the larger studio works turn first-hand observations into complex statements."

The Nature of Light, The Light of Nature will continue through August 26 during regular gallery hours, Thursday through Saturday, 11am-5pm.
