Paint The Town @ Dan Painter's Gallery

Dan Painter is one of the friendliest, most affable people in the St Pete arts scene. He works in several media, and is seen on the right with one of his female "trophy" sculptures. Since opening his studio for openings and parties, it has become a popular stop on the 2nd Saturday arts trail.

The event was held to help sponsor the Suncoast  Seabird Sanctuary, with a pelican missing part of a wing in a cage at the rear of the gallery. This is their table, with materials, brochures, and bottles for people to make contributions. The Sanctuary can be reached here: [Link]. Note the appropriate background Dan found for the display. Dan has some excellent pieces of poster art from fairs/carnivals.

This sidewalk Mona Lisa in chalk greeted gallery goers. On the right is another of Painter's "trophy" sculptures. Note the large ears.

This sculpture was laid down on the floor along the back wall.

The "Four Horses of the Apocalypse"  by Daniel Painter. This quartet of equine skeletons jumps out of the frame through the 4rth wall into space.

Congratulations to Daniel Painter for putting together an enjoyable opening.
