Gateway Gallery presents "Exploring the Landscape with Paint" featuring paintings by Gateway Resident Artist Daniel Fishback, May 2-May 31 with Artist Reception May 10, 6-9 pm at 21 North Bemiston in Clayton. In 1998 Daniel started drawing and painting and took a few adult education drawing and watercolor classes, but is otherwise self-taught. He especially enjoys being around streams, rivers, and lakes, and believes the beauty of landscape is enhanced when it is juxtaposed with a body of water reflecting elements of the land, trees, boulders, and the sky.
When Daniel was a young boy, he became fascaintated with the outdoors while exploring a creek which ran about 50 yards from his Grandmother's home. With each painting Daniel tries to place the viewer at the scene to walk down the path, wade in the stream or swim in the lake. Many have told him his paintings have a great sense of depth, like they can almost walk into them. His aim is to create paintings that viewers not only feel like they can walk into, but are so inviting they wish they could.
2D Guest Artist Denzil Hawes-Davis will exhibit reflections of "Stillness-in-motion" through the lens of his camera. 2D Guest Artist Cheryl Dorris will exhibit photographs from her travels around the country and the world. 3D Guest Artist Carol Fleming will display her functiional and non-functional sculpture along with her famous egg and mushroom pieces.
Gateway Gallery is owned and operated entirely by local artists, allowing visitors the opportunity to meet the artists themselves. The diversity found amoung this group can be seen in the wide range of art styles and media represented by the artists. Located in downtown Clayton, MO, the gallery is within walking distance to other galleries and many of St Louis' finest restaurants and cafe's, making it a "must-stop" destination for art lovers, art collectors and designers.
