          Fresh Gallery presents Featured Artist Alan O’Neal in August. O’Neal is a retired engineer.  He started photography before he can remember, and some of the images offered for sale were taken nearly 25 years ago.  O’Neal grew up in the country, still lives in the country, and has a fondness for nature.  All of these things have an influence on the type of pictures he takes.

In 2004, O’Neal started doing Digital Art.  His process is taking a photograph and creating an alternate image out of it.  O’Neal says, “My computer and mouse are my palette and paintbrush.  Many times the final results will have no appearance of being a photograph.  I find it neat that it is possible to have an alternate image of a good photo that is also pleasing.”  For O’Neal, it is also satisfying to take a less pleasing photo and create a desirable image from it.  He creates his photo art only from pictures that he has taken.  His works can also be seen in the permanent collections at St. John’s Hospital of Springfield and Boone Hospital of Columbia, MO.  In addition to those permanent collections, O’Neal has been represented in multiple galleries, juried shows and exhibitions. He has also received several awards, including the Juror’s Choice Award twice at the Waverly House Juried Exhibit in Springfield, MO.

In addition to taking all of his own photos, O’Neal does all of his own processing, printing, mounting and framing.  His largest printer is 44” wide.  Any of his available photos can be custom printed and framed.  O’Neal will be available to answer questions about his art and his processes during the First Friday Art Walk.  Also, please join Fresh Gallery for Second Saturday on Aug. 13
