Capture, Inc. Gallery Art Exhibition Opening

On December 15th 2012 from 5-9 PM, Capture, Inc Gallery of Brownsville is hosting an art show opening featuring artwork from high school students and local artists.  "Operation Chestnut: An Exhibition of Local and Aspiring Artists" showcases diverse art pieces from over 20 students, grades 9-12, from Brownsville Area High School art classes and art club, led by art teacher and advisor Brian Nicholson. The exhibition also incorporates pieces from established artists Bethany Anderson, Joe Materkowski, and Jeff Jones.

Bethany Anderson has been a professional airbrush artist for 5 years. She moved to Brownsville last year from Las Vegas.In a studio at the Flatiron building in Brownsville, Anderson makes custom ordered artwork and pursues projects that challenge and inspire her.

Joe Materkowski is a Western Pennsylvania native with a Master of Fine Arts Degree from The New York Academy of Art. In his most recent series of paintings, Materkowski works within the realm of abstraction. Materkowski exhibits his artwork in New York City and in the Pittsburgh area.  He also works as an adjunct art professor for Penn State University and St. Vincent College.

Jeff Jones is a photographer, artist, and owner of the Capture, Inc Gallery.   He purchased his first camera in 1972, and has been creating beautiful images ever since. Jones has mastered the digital medium for capturing and manipulating his images.  He has exhibited work at Modern Formations, Carnegie Museum of Art, and the August Wilson Cultural Center. His photography has also been published in Popular Photography magazine

This is the first in a series of planned gallery openings featuring the art work of Brownsville youth intermixed with that of local artisans. The goal of the "Operation Chestnut" exhibitions is to showcase local talent. Student artists will be able to interact with those who have chosen art as their career. These exhibitions will encourage the students to produce artwork that displays their talents to the public.

Capture Inc, Gallery is located on the basement level of the Flatiron Building, 69 Market Street in Brownsville.  Capture Inc will be open from December 15th 2012 until January 12th 2013.  Hours will be 11-5 Monday through Saturday, and Sundays by appointment. Anderson will be painting in the gallery, and taking custom artwork orders from visitors. Stop by the gallery to watch her work and learn more about airbrushing.
