The Galveston Art League Gallery is currently featuring entries
accepted into its fall juried show through September 24. Highlights
of the exhibit are the Best of Show and the works that were
awarded first and second place in each of five categories: works
on canvas, works on paper, photography, two-dimensional mixed
media, and three-dimensional works such as sculpture, pottery,
and jewelry. The show also includes the art work that received the
annual McGivney Award, given to the best work on paper or canvas
that portrays Galveston life. GAL is the oldest continuously operating
membership-based art league in Texas and has been offering juried,
membership, and invitational shows in Galveston since 1914.

“Just Three Birds” by gayle reynolds
The Water’s Edge Studio and Gallery
1302 21st Street | 409.762.1925
Open Thur.-Sat. 10am-5pm or by appointment
Although painter and gallery owner Gayle Reynolds thought she
would be painting buildings of Galveston this month, a strong
desire to paint rosette spoonbills has produced a surprisingly
different but equally captivating result. Most days Gayle paints
in her studio at the gallery and her husband Rex Reynolds is
also there, busy building Adirondack tallboys in the boatroom,
where previously he built seven dories. In the gallery alongside
Gayle’s paintings, Madeleine Baker shows her lovely pottery, and
the bronze ladies produced by Pat Moberley Moore are also on
display. Chase Jennings crafts primitive necklaces, each highlighted
with an authentic arrowhead.
“Shrimp and Steel” by René wiley
René Wiley Gallery is now showing a collection of cargo ship and
shrimp boat paintings from Galveston’s harbor, as well as the
bright birds from Wiley’s previous summer show. The gallery’s well-
rounded collection includes paintings in a variety of mediums, mixed
media works by daughters Rachel Wiley-Janota and Samantha Wiley,
beautiful new tree sculptures from James Phillips and intricate
wooden bowls by Dale Hooks, as well as new hand-dyed fabric
mosaics by Brenda Bunten-Schloesser and colorful glass sculptures
by Bill Meek. For added convenience, the gallery will pay for
customers’ downtown parking, and offers gift certificates, shipping,
commission work, and discounts for previous collectors.
