Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC, Features Works by Kevin Kuhnel

Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC, is presenting metalworks by artist Kevin Kuhnel, on view through Apr. 27, 2013.

Gallery own Ginny Lassiter has announced, “Kevin creates beautiful coastal-themed metal sculptures that are ideal for homes in the area,” she said. “We’ll have visitors come in just to see his latest pieces. His sun designs, cattails and large-scale fish are among his most popular.”

Kuhnel lived in New York’s Hudson Valley until the age of 13, when his family moved to Cary, NC. As an adult, he worked with the NC Department of Transportation for almost 30 years.

Now living in the Pittsboro, NC area, Kuhnel discovered his artistic talent in 2006 when he attended welding classes and found he had an affinity for the skill. He was soon offered a teaching position in Continuing Education. He currently teaches two days a week and, according to the artist, is influenced by his students as much as he shares his knowledge with them.

“I’m self-taught for the most part,” says Kuhnel. “My favorite subject in art and in life is nature. I work primarily in steel, but wander towards other media at times.”

Sunset River Marketplace showcases work by approximately 200 North and South Carolina artists, and houses some 10,000 square feet of oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, mixed media, art glass, pottery, sculpture, turned and carved wood and artisan-created jewelry. There are two onsite kilns used by students in the ongoing pottery classes offered by the gallery. A custom framing department is available. There are also classes in oil painting, watercolor, pastel and drawing.

For further information check our NC Commercial Gallery listings, call the gallery at 910/575-5999 or visit (www.sunsetrivermarketplace.com). Daily updates are made to the gallery’s Facebook page.
