Need a getaway to the beach without leaving town? Join the Shelby County Arts Council on Saturday, January 19,2013, at the artist reception for Justin Gaffrey. Justin’s work is well known in the 30A area of the Florida’s Gulf Coast. Visitors to Seaside and Blue Mountain Beach, Florida are enchanted by his vivid works of art. This is a rare opportunity to view and purchase his work outside his gallery.
“Working now exclusively with pure acrylic paints (no fillers are used) and using mostly the palette knife, he produces works of breathtaking beauty and complexity. His technique might best be described as “sculpting with paint.” Most works utilize colors that are extraordinarily vibrant, but he also produces wonderful soft palettes of muted tones, sometimes working entirely in white. While the subject matter is varied, his works are all reflections of the beauty he finds in the natural world that surrounds him daily along Highway 30-A.”
The exhibit can be viewed at the Shelby County Arts Council through January 30, 104 Mildred Avenue, Columbiana, Alabama. The gallery is open Monday - Thursday 10am-5pm. For more information contact Susan Gordon at (205) 669-0044 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
