After a long time working in watercolors, painter Gayle
Reynolds of The Water’s Edge gallery is transitioning back to
painting with oils. However, one thing will remain the same,
her ability to lovingly capture and bring to life the most
subtle details of Galveston’s cityscape, such as an otherwise
inconspicuous group of palm trees. In the boatroom,
Rex Reynolds continues to build his popular Adirondack
tallboys. Pottery on display in the gallery is by Madeleine
Baker, and sculptures are by Pat Moberley Moore, who has
recently brought in the fourth edition of a collection of twelve
entitled
This Land
. Primitive yet thought-provoking necklaces
by Chase Jennings feature arrowheads and animal teeth.
