Michael Boelke: June Spotlight Artist at Downtown Art Gallery
Michael Boelke is an award winning graphic artist with a special eye for Florida animals, bird and landscapes. He is the June Spotlight Artist at the Downtown Art Gallery, 335 S. Washington Ave. in historic downtown Titusville. An exhibit of his latest work will be on display all month at this fine art gallery featuring local artists..
Michael has been an artist since his U.S. Air Force service during the Vietnam War. For 20 years he was the department chairman at a university level graphic design program, and taught every program class from beginning drawing to advanced computer graphics. Now retired, he loves to teach acrylic painting at the North Brevard Art League.
Michael’s eclectic skills include equally diverse paintings in acrylic and gouache and photo realistic drawings in pencil and pastels. Currently he is experimenting with miniatures: small, highly detailed acrylic paintings which have a remarkable realistic quality in spite of their small size.
On Friday June 19 Michael will be doing a demonstration on “Painting Florida with Acrylics” from 11 am to 3 pm to at the Downtown Art Galley. You can also view his work during the Gallery’s summer hours, 11 am to 3 pm, Monday through Saturday. For more information call 321-268-0122.
