Throughout the month, he will exhibit Rivermaids, a photo ensemble that celebrates the interplay of sunlight, water, and the female form. He describes this as his visual homage to the magical spirits that humans for millennia have believed inhabit rivers, lakes, and streams, usually in female form.
A Meet the Artist session will take place Saturday, February 6, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Gifts Inn is a gift shop and boutique gallery showcasing work by local and regional artists and artisans. It is owned by arts patron and popular novelist Nora Roberts.
