Artist Reception August 20th 6-9 PM

It’s an adventure brings together the works of three diverse artists Phill Evans, Christine Capelle and Myra Steward. Each brings their unique love of art to life through their chosen media. Phill’s metal kinetic figures in pose and motion report current events with the ability to last the test of time. Christine Capelle brings her passion for painting to life through her masterful use of water colors, acrylics, pencil and oil pastels. Her works evolve from her inner sense of joyfulness and her ability to set aside past conventions. Myra Steward’s watercolor and mixed media birds and animals reflect her belief that “Every painting tells a story and captures a single moment or thought in time” .  She paints with a limited palette of just one blue, one yellow and one red, keeping her challenged to create as many shades of color as possible! Come and meet the artists and explore their views and experiences.
