"Jules Verne's Nautilus, Variations on a Theme”— A Collection of Paintings and Sculpture by Artist Josef Keller

 
 
During February through April 2019, the Goldberg Gallery at Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, Maine is pleased to announce that it will host a collection of paintings and sculptures, featuring the work of artist Josef Keller.  

Keller's work is inspired by science fiction, steampunk, and mixed metals: “I have been a fan of Jules Verne, especially the Nautilus from the Disney movie, “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea,” ever since I first saw it in 1955,” says Keller.  “I’ve re-read the novel numerous times and collected assorted books and photos. I tried, unsuccessfully, to build a model of the Nautilus while I was in high school, and later as an adult. I finally made one in 2009 from a thin, plywood frame, balsa wood skin, and hundreds of straight pins for rivets.  I have since constructed 10 different versions of this submarine using the balsa wood technique and repurposed objects that fit.”

An artist reception will be held on March 3, from 1 - 3 p.m.

About the artist:
From Brownfield, Maine, Keller has over 30 years of experience creating dynamic and bold 2D and 3D art. He paints in a detailed realistic style, experiments with visual abstraction, and is equally comfortable painting with an airbrush on paper and canvas as he is on motorcycles and cars. To learn more about the artist, please visit www.southwindairbrush.com.

The Goldberg Gallery is open to the public and the hours are Sundays - 12:00-4:00 p.m. & 7:30-9:30 p.m.; Monday-Thursday-7:00-5:00 p.m. & 7:30-9:30 p.m.; Fridays 7-5 p.m.; closed Saturdays.
