GARY KOEPPEL & BARBARA TRAINER
Friday December 11th, 6-8pm
Gary Koeppel — Painter
The elements that attract me to a scene have to do with composition, color, contrasts of light and dark. In addition to on site (Plein Air) painting I have been working on larger studio pieces from photographic reference of interesting compositions and lighting. Working in this controlled environment affords me the luxury of time to work larger and push the image in a slightly different and compelling direction.
Barbara Trainer — Jewelry Artist
Barbara began jewelry designing in 2007 as another creative outlet in her life. Her career as a certified landscape designer led to her interest in other kinds of design. With a background in needle and fabric crafts, she started working with jewelry components such as hand-blown imported glass, sterling silver, other metals and many other unusual, eclectic materials. Her pieces are meant to catch and reflect light and color in a delicate interplay. And she strives to create necklaces and earrings of unique textures and forms.
