May 4 Opening at Bajo el Sol Featuring Bass, Lee, Tacquard and Stelzer


Glass by Greg Lee

Anole molting by Stelzer

Painting by Tacquard

Oil paintings by Patty Tacquard and photographs by William Stelzer will be featured along with new work by glass artists Greg Lee and Mariel Bass at Bajo el Sol Gallery’s Opening Reception on Friday, May 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Mongoose Junction Gallery. 

Working to capture the movement of color and reflection both in shadows and water, Tacquard’s  new work is still her island home. Enjoy her island capture of sea gulls, beach life and palm trees, all with their own shadows and colors.

Sharing wall space with Tacquard’s paintings will be Stelzer’s photographs. Stelzer shares his talents and work in many ways on St. John and beyond. Whether reading about protecting coral reefs, visiting a new website or viewing an island video, chances are Stelzer has participated in its creation.   

Bass and Lee, St. John artists working at Maho Bay Glassworks, will feature new work at the May opening reception as well. From simple shapes and single colors to intricate twists and swirls and sand-blasting, the artists continue to take their work and development to higher levels. Using recycled glass, they create works worthy of display in many fine galleries, museums, and homes.

Join the featured artists and the other Bajo el Sol gallery artists for the opening reception Friday May 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. The gallery is located at the top of the stone steps in Mongoose Junction. For more information call 693-7070.
