Tom Veirs

The Browsing Room Gallery at the Downtown Presbyterian Church is pleased to present and exhibition of paintings by DPC resident-artist Tom Veirs entitled Unreliable Witnesses.

Artist Statement:
My inspiration for artistic expression, whether it involves painting, stage performance, music or any other artistic work, lies in the emotion of the moment both from a performer’s experience as well as an observer. Color, shape and form define my level of emotion.”  Joni Mitchell probably said it best for me…

“I am a lonely painter. I live in a box of paint. I’m frightened by the Devil and drawn to those ones who ain’t.” - Joni Mitchell
