“palms” by richard kelver
Third Coast Gallery is proud to be able to exhibit the paintings
of Richard Kelver. A noted regional artist for over three decades,
Richard is known for his paintings of Galveston, the coast, and rich
landscapes. Proficient in both oils and watercolors, Richard’s paintings
exhibit a love for nature, and sometimes are presented as wonderful
understatements of their subject matter. Pure and painterly are two
descriptive words that come to mind in describing his work. Also
on display at the gallery are the paintings of Jack Morris, as well as
the sculpture of Shae Skidmore, and possibly other gallery artists
throughout the month. Come and enjoy the art and the atmosphere at
Third Coast Gallery.

This month, the Galveston Art League Gallery will feature its Winter
Juried Show, with an opening reception and formal awards show
on February 4 from 6pm-8pm that is open to the public. Unlike the
shows nine months out of the year that only accept entries from
the Art League’s members, the three annual juried shows are also
open to non-members. Entries come from throughout the Houston-
Galveston area and include a wide variety of mediums. Awards are
given for the Best in Show, first and second place in each of five
categories, and honorable mention. GAL is a non-profit organization
formed in 1914 to promote art and artists in the Galveston area.
