Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

The Artist in Res­i­dence (AIR), a co­op­er­a­tive gallery, is de­lighted to brighten the gray month of Novem­ber with the fine art of Har­ald Aks­dal and De­bra Kiel. The pub­lic is in­vited to a re­cep­tion at the gallery (Main Street, Enos­burg Falls) on Sun­day, Novem­ber 1, 2015, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. The artists will share and dis­cuss their re­cent work. In ad­di­tion, sap buck­ets painted by var­i­ous artist mem­bers will con­tinue to be dis­played and sold as a fundraiser for the gallery. Re­fresh­ments will be served. We hope 14th Star Brew­ery will join us once again as well.

He re­cently il­lus­trated his first chil­dren’s book.

Best know for his amaz­ing, re­al­is­tic pen and ink ren­der­ings, Aks­dal has ven­tured into work­ing with wa­ter­col­ors in re­cent years. His ini­tial work fo­cused on de­tails, re­spect­ing each in­di­vid­ual line,
