DUU VisArts is hosting an opening reception for James Keul's "Alla Villa." There will be free food and amazing art!

"Drawn together through a common thread of exploring nature, light,
and space in a single sitting, or alla prima, this diverse collection of
paintings represents the bedrock of my artistic practice. Doing
quick studies from nature, whether in oil paint, as seen in this
exhibit, or pen and ink, I constantly study form and how light and
atmosphere affect the way we see and how that knowledge might
inform my larger studio works. Staying connected to nature by
expressing it through art is not only good for the soul but as an artist
who's work deals with the unsettling issue of climate change, I
believe that it is critical to have that grounding. Pursuing a greater
understanding of nature helps foster a greater appreciation of it
and, therefore, a desire to protect it. But communing with nature, in
kind, revitalizes and can restore one's resilience, thus completing
the circle."
