On Friday, August 2 from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. self-taught artist David Kehs will be in the Galleria at the Johnson City Public Library to meet and greet patrons as they view his exhibit of oil and watercolor paintings and carvings.
After working in the sign industry in the Chicago area for over twenty years, Kehs moved to Johnson City five years ago to be near family. He now works with Maria Curd at Arte Bella Decorative Painting doing faux finishing. He also works with Kathy Blair at Murals and More painting murals, a job he has always wanted to do.
Kehs enjoys “going with whatever media best serves his current inspiration” and has worked as a candle designer and carver, creating over 100 unique designs. His landscapes are mainly of the woods, flowing water and rocks he finds in this area. Kehs also paints portraits; however his favorite media is an illustrative style using watercolors.
Light refreshments will be provided by the Johnson City Public Library at this free event. For more information call 434-4450 or Gina Thayer-Coleman at 434-4465.
