This exhibit coincides with the reopening of the renovated theater, which will be showing films on Fridays and Saturdays beginning Sept. 6. Along with his exhibit, DePaolo will be on hand at The Strand that evening to provide a demonstration and greet the public.
An award-winning artist, DePaolo’s creations range from nostalgic drawings influenced by classic cowboy heroes to fine art paintings in oil, watercolor or acrylic. He is also known for his colored pencil portraits of people, pets and homes from photos.
His work is currently on display at Main Street Artists’ Co-Op in Waynesville, and he will also be featured artist in the lobby of the HART Theatre in Waynesville.
