Brookings artist and sculptor Pete Chasar is the Manley Art Center and Gallery’s Artist of the Month for July.
As featured artist, Chasar will display several of his large-format, acrylic-on-canvas paintings, as well as a few three-dimensional pieces. He is also scheduled to do a live painting demonstration in the Manley classroom during the Second Saturday Art Walk from 4 to 7 p.m. today (see story below).
Chasar’s newest piece on display at the Manley is Slide House, a three-dimensional representation of a small, Frank Lloyd Wright-style house fabricated from 3,000 vintage 35mm slides and other recycled materials.
