Third Thursday, August 21, will feature a Gallery Talk with John Osler at Detroit Fiber Works at 7 PM.

John Osler, is a Detroit artist of immense talent.  His black and white photography is featured in the recently published book, Detroit Jazz.  He is also a gifted painter whose work includes the 2014 Detroit Jazz Festival poster.  Osler’s paintings and photography will be on exhibit at Detroit Fiber Works on The Avenue of Fashion in Northwest Detroit through August 30, 2014.  Signed copies of Detroit Jazz will also be available for purchase.

While Osler’s jazz-focused photography and paintings are beautifully executed, his subject matter extends far beyond the theme of jazz performers.  His portraits of ordinary people, both in paint and photographs, are sensitively rendered and capture the essence of each person.  He also paints and photographs picturesque landscapes which make the viewer yearn to be in that place, wherever it might be.
