New Classical Expressions: Joseph Lucido and Christopher Marshall
Early Spring at Starkweather Galleries looked a bit like the DIA with classical painters Lucido and Marshall. Stunning oils in landscape, still life and portraits were lighting up the gallery walls.
Kasperek3: James, Sheri & Mia
We were very happy to host the Kasperek Family in July.
James has won numerous awards at Starkweather for his pastels. Wife Sheri is also a talented painter, and we were able to intoduce their daughter Mia who is a budding photographer.
Our annual fundraiser helped us raise money for our Building Preservation Fund, and we will be getting a badly needed new roof soon!
Many thanks to James Kasperek who donated an original painting to use for our advertising and which we also raffled off at the event! Jazz singer Sheila Landis was phenomenal, as usual.
