Empire painter Craig Weisse exhibits independent and Impressionistic images of his shoreline community June 30-July 6 at Center Gallery. Weisse, a retired physician, has lived in Empire for 28 years. In that time he has focused his painting on the locality, both its natural features as well as the historical and neighborhood buildings that give this community its character. He works in gouache and oil, and strives to convey the “internalized landscape” – an emotional and nostalgic take on a place with which he is deeply familiar. Center Gallery is open daily 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
