Painting on her whims, gallery owner and artist Gayle Reynolds is
producing an ArtWalk show for October 14 that will introduce many
different subjects to her prolific body of work. Rex Reynolds stays steady
and continually builds the Adirondack tallboys which everyone loves. He
recently celebrated the completion of his one hundredth chair, which is
signed and titled, “Harvey.” Other works featured at the Water’s Edge
include the pottery of Galveston resident Madeleine Baker, the feminine
bronze sculptures of Pat Moberley Moore from San Leon, and necklaces
by Chase Jennings of Houston and Galveston that are handcrafted from
primitive accoutrements. The gallery opens early for ArtWalk at 4pm,
making it a great place to begin the evening before heading downtown.
