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,
