Born in Pasadena in 1934, Terry DeLapp studied at the Chouinards Art Academy in Hollywood and at the University of California. DeLapp currently lives and works in Cambria, CA. He has been exhibiting his paintings since the early 1980s, participating in group shows in California, New Mexico and elsewhere. DeLapp has had numerous solo exhibitions as well, most recently at the Bakersfield Museum of Art (1998). His paintings can be found at the San Diego Museum of Art, and in many private collections, including those of Steve Martin, Martin Mull, Joan Rivers, Julian Ganz, and Robert Zemeckis.

Dennis Campay’s paintings combine cosmopolitan cityscapes with an ethos that is at once rustic and sophisticated, conveying an international urbanity. His kaleidoscopic scenes present a mesmerizing mix of columns, porticos, slatted shutters, and balconies, gently coexisting with marshes, white-washed churches, boats, and bridges. Silvery bodies of water, worn books, the solitary piano, and ubiquitous chairs take their place where interiors and exteriors blend and beckon, evoking memories, illusions and dreams.

Kim Schuessler’s lighthearted images come with a serious art background. Educated at the University of Georgia and Parsons School of Design in New York, Schuessler has honed her fun loving craft. She also spent time studying with Dan Connally in Cortona, Italy and at the University of Bourgogne in Dijon, France. She has over 25 exhibitions to her credit. Schuessler’s work is always in high demand. Her collectors span from Hawaii to the East Coast.

Located in beautiful Myers Park, Shain Gallery has been on the forefront of the North Carolina art scene since 1998. The gallery represents many leading national and regional artists, and recently won the “Best of the Best Award” for best Charlotte gallery.
