A free art exhibit featuring the works of David Gentry will be on display at Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center from Nov. 21 through Jan. 12. The “Still Life” exhibit displays an eclectic style derived from the influences of several notable instructors in ceramics, painting, drawing and metal sculpture. David Gentry has always had a passion for photography and pottery, and has reached outside his comfort zone over the past year to explore art and life in new and unique ways. As Gentry explained, this exhibit represents “the convergence of influences which represents a year’s worth of memory snapshots in ceramics, metalwork, painting, drawing and photography. It is a celebration of recalling life lived, seeking passion in our daily living and reminding ourselves that there is still life ahead.” David Gentry uses pottery and art as his outlets for creativity and stress relief, and prefers to share his works with family and friends, while donating the bulk of his work to support church missions’ projects and other community causes.
