“Monks Cove,” by David F. Kelley, currently on display at the Maser Gallery.
“An Exhibition of Recent Pastels” by David F. Kelley is at the Maser Gallery at Falmouth Community Television from through January 31, 2013, with an opening reception on Sunday, January 13, from 3 to 5 PM.
A serious artist for most of his life, Kelley has worked professionally as a graphic designer and illustrator in publishing, pro sports, and technology, always finding time to paint and experiment with different styles of art, from abstract to impressionistic to more representative, and using a variety of media.
He discovered pastels about seven years ago and has won numerous awards and recognition for his work, both on the Cape and nationally.
According to Kelley, “Creating art is not easy, but if blessed with a degree of talent and strong motivation, you can fly over the speed bumps that impede your way to self-discovery. Motivation and belief is critical, because without it, you can think and talk, but not do. True motivation and belief in self is the critical gift that keeps you on track during the worst of storms and aids in the discovery, enjoyment and sharing of the gifts you’ve been given.”
Kelley talks about his art work, technical aspects, and the creative process in this video about his Maser Gallery show:
This is a wonderful show full of vibrant , energetic abstracts, colorful vistas, and interesting people. And yes, I am one of David’s subjects, “the flutist.” Enjoy this lovely show.
Maser Gallery exhibit hours are Sunday and Monday 2 to 10 PM; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 10 AM to 10 PM, and Friday, from 10 AM to 6 PM.
