BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The Downtown Art Gallery, 335 S. Washington Ave. in downtown Titusville announces its featured artist for June: Bruce DesShetler.

Bruce is acclaimed for his local Florida beach scenes, but he turned his gaze to the 70s, 80s and 90s with a humorous take on classic Saturday Night Live skits.

If you remember Land Shark, Patrick Swayze’s Chippendales and the “Cheeseburger!” Cheeseburger!” you’ll love these paintings done in acrylic or ink and watercolor. All would make great Father’s Day gifts.

Bruce has been an artist since he was old enough to hold a pencil. He grew up just drawing anything and everything. Then, 10 years ago, his wife suggested he add color.

It started his journey as a self-taught artist learning to control watercolors. His early work was inspired by the advertising art of the 1950s, particularly maps and scenes from tourist advertisements of Old Florida. Then, inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, it expanded to include clouds, waves and surfers.

Bruce’s paintings are on display throughout June at the Downtown Art Gallery, Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., or they’ll be happy to book an appointment with you.

This amazing art gallery, which also offers printing and framing services, showcases the work of 20 talented local artists with a focus on Florida themes. For more information, call 321-268-0122 or check them out on Facebook @The Downtown Art Gallery.
