Award-winning painter Frank Bruckmann and sculptor Gar Waterman will exhibit their most recent work at the Kehler Liddell Gallery: "Nudes and Nudibranchs," from February 7- March 10, 2013. Frank Bruckmann and Gar Waterman are both traditionalists who use direct observation of nature and carefully applied technique to craft their work. Bruckmann's brushstrokes caress oil paint with an expert and familiar hand into the eternally complex landscape of the female figure, while Waterman's sculpture bends the liquid sheen of polished stone into impressions of rhythm and grace from the marine environment.
