Pastel work by Don Garey

Don Garey pastel workThe Spirits Within exhibit of pastel work by Staples artist Don Garey is on display at the Cultural Center in the ground floor gallery.

Opening October 18 and running through November 26, this exhibit by Don Garey fills the Cultural Center gallery.  A reception welcoming everyone to talk with Don about his work will be held on Friday, October 24th from 6-8 pm.

Don taught graphic art and design at Central Lakes College until his recent retirement.  The striking images in this work are intended to interpret insights Don discovered in a long bout with cancer.  He writes that the work “is not about art principles or design, it is rather about what it is in our lives that gets us through difficult times.”
