Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Donald Peeler

Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present an exhibit of fresh colorful floral pieces by artist Donald Peeler, on view from Sept. 9 - 30, 2011. A reception will be held for Donald Peeler and last month’s featured artist, Brian Hibbard on Sept. 9, from 6-9pm.

Peeler grew up in Lincolnton, NC, and attended The School of Design at NC State University where he studied design along with painting and sculpture. He graduated cum laude with a BS in Product Design. He was chosen to study with noted sculptor, Jose de Rivera, and one of his pieces was selected for an exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

Upon graduating, Peeler worked for Irvin Industries, Inc, in Raleigh, then Sybron Corporation, then finally the Jobst Institute in Toledo, OH. Jobst moved their headquarters to Charlotte in 1993 and he continued working there until his retirement in 2004.

After Peeler retired, he began painting instruction with Elizabeth Ross and CPCC concentrating and developing his very realistic and detailed style of painting.

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 was recently voted yet again the “Best of the Best” for best Charlotte gallery.
