Gabriel Tempesta Profiled for 2015-16 Winter Stowe Guide

West Branch painter and Wolcott native, Gabriel Tempesta, was profiled by Jasmine Bigelow for a multi-page spread in the Winter/Spring 2015-2016 Stowe Guide, a locally produced seasonal publication available at many locations throughout the region.

If the issue’s cover image of a back country skier has you assuming it must be a photograph upon first glance, you wouldn’t be the first to make the mistake where Gabe’s photorealist paintings in charcoal, watercolor, and casein are concerned. Jasmine Bigelow takes us inside the artist’s studio and in the process not only reveals a great deal about his artistic techniques, but also about his motivations, admirable work ethic, and creative character. The story features images of several works by Gabriel currently featured in his solo exhibition, “Our World, Charcoals & Casein,” on view in the Upstairs Gallery at West Branch through December 31st.
