FACES OF KESL
Lennie Kesl–Portrait Artist

Drawings of familiar faces by Gainesville artist Leonard E. Kesl (1926 to 2012) in the Mezzanine Gallery, along with photographic portraits of the late artist by his daughter, Charlotte Kesl. This exhibit commemorates the anniversary of Kesl’s 90th birthday.

TREE OF LIFE
Jesse J. Aaron–Sculptor

“I never try to second guess the Lord,” said Jesse Aaron when he felt he had been called by God to carve wood. Sculpture by Aaron (1887 to 1979) featured in the Main Gallery, previously the kitchen of the Hotel Thomas, where Aaron worked for a few years as a cook.
