ARTIST RECEPTION
for John Ricklefs

Artist statement:

John has been actively pursuing photography since 1960.  John worked in a national park that summer and his roommate bought him a small 35mm camera and it was off to the races.
He has done many things in photography over the years, some landscape, some lighthouses, some human interest, and some sports related for his kids and grandkids.  Over the past 12 years, he and his wife Marcie have traveled internationally to participate in mission work and have had the good fortune of returning home through a dozen or more countries.  While there, of course, they worked on photography in every country they traveled. September’s theme is AFTER DARK which is featuring photographs taken at night.  Included are such icons as the Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower and a few other from France, as well as many things closer to home.

Original Abstract Acrylic painting by David Stewart

 

Artist statement:
I am a real estate agent and house flipper by day and an artist by nature. I paint with acrylic and oil paints. Themes in my artwork vary from challenging educational studies to deeply emotional renderings of loved ones as well as total abstractions. Each painting is thoughtfully composed no matter the subject. I attempt to engage the viewer with specific mood, time and the subtle effects of the painting medium. Currently I am the CEO of the Olathe Visual Artists and First Art Gallery of Olathe. I teach painting classes at the First Art Gallery of Olathe every Saturday morning. I have won the following honors Brush Creek Art Walk 2014 – Honorable Mention, “Nelson From the South Lawn” Plein Air oil on canvas, Stems Plein Air Event 2014 – 4th Place “Silent City” Plein Air oil on canvas nocturn, Olathe Art Fair 2013 – 3rd place “Kill Creek Trail” Plein Air oil on canvas
