In the Gallery: Michael Slagle

August – September 2022:


Experience the bold art of Michael Slagle, on exhibit at the library in August and September. “My paintings are based on the landscapes of my neighborhood in Lakeland, compositions I have encountered on my daily routine: walking the dog, out and about with my kids, etc.  If I spot an interesting composition I will either take a picture or draw it, or both, and manipulate the image in Photoshop. Using Photoshop I flatten areas in the image, play with the composition, and tweak the colors.” Michael then begins painting, bringing the image into a new form on the canvas.


Meet Michael at the library during the artist reception on Thursday, August 25 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM.
The exhibit is located on the upper level of the library in the Gallery. The exhibit is viewable during library hours.
