“calm boats” 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.
