Kill Devil Hills, NC, November 18, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Seaside Art Gallery invites you to embarq on an extraordinary journey with Debra Keirce and the Masters. Modern interpretations inspired by famous paintings. From missing earrings to stolen art.
Keirce’s brand new series of paintings are inspired by the Old Masters. She re-created them in a modern vision.
"My art journey has taken me to this place where I am finally understanding why I am drawn toward miniatures, and why I prefer classical realism to photo realism - in particular, why I love the Dutch masters and have since I was a kid. I love art that draws you IN,” says Keirce.
She explains that the Masters painted in exquisite detail, similar to miniature art, and that alone invites you to lean in and look closer. Keirce’s goal in her art is to give the viewer an experience.
“I want them to feel they are IN the painting, feeling the heat or the splash of the wave, smelling the flowers, hearing the birds chirping in the distance. I thought by capitalizing the IN in Inspired, it would convey some of that,” Keirce says.
The show opens November 24th and runs for a limited time through December 29th, 2018.

You can meet Debra Keirce at the gallery during a catered reception on opening night, November 24th, 2018 from 7pm to 9pm. She loves meeting with both new and seasoned art collectors. The reception is open to the public.
