Local Scenes Captured on Canvas by Walter Sanders
|Siesta Key Sunset|
Sanders is a mechanical engineer by trade, with degrees from the University of Central Florida. But his 40-year career has brought him to Washington where he says he recently picked up a brush again. He calls his artwork a retreat that allows him to leave all stresses behind.
Inspired by the scenery he sees while hiking and camping, Sanders has created a collection of acrylic and oil paintings that reflect nature with a hushed quality. The scenes will be displayed through April 28. The gallery is open during regular library hours, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
