The artists who will be showing work beginning September 7 are
Christine Debastani and Kai Simmons.
Here is what they have to say--
Having relocated from Virginia this summer with my family, I'm a new girl in a new town. Color. Joy. Whimsy - my hope is that my paintings make you smile, move you in some way or inspire you look at things differently - if even just a little. When I find the time to paint, in between life happening, I am always reminded at how amazing it is to be able to create something out of nothing and that we are only limited by our own imagination. Sometimes I am inspired by others' work and sometimes the subject comes as an image or feeling - mostly because it has some degree of silliness to it or bright, bold color. Thank you, Satchel's, for the opportunity to share in your inspired creation - Peace. Christine
My name is Kai Simmons, from here in Gainesville, Florida. I'm an amateur photographer who hopes to make a career out of it. Hope you like what you see!
