Solo Exhibition and Opening Reception for Kelly Detweiler



Kelly Detweiler's work is varied in content and in media. Having started as a ceramist, the mentality creating multiple objects still resonates in his work. The floral and landscape imagery often refer back to his childhood in Colorado and to his extensive travels as an adult. The overriding sense of the work is a fun loving and optimistic approach to making art and experiencing the world around us. Currently he is a Professor of Art at Santa Clara University where he has taught for past 30 years. He has studied with a veritable who's who of California Art, including Arneson, De Forest, Neri, Thiebaud, Saunders, Bailey, Ramos, just to mention a few.Opening reception with live music and refreshments 11/8/2013 7:00pm-10:00pm
