DEANNA AND TERRY DRAKE TO SHOW AT ALEXANDER'S

Oct. 8, 2001- A couple of St. Thomas artists who are a couple in life will be exhibiting their paintings at Alexander's Cafe in Frenchtown starting Friday, when the public is invited to meet them and view their works at a champagne reception from 5 to 7 p.m.
Deanna and Terry Drake both work mainly in acrylic, producing bright interpretive images of local people and places that have an inviting neo-primitive quality about them.
The Drakes moved to St. Thomas from the U.S. Midwest several years ago.
Terry Drake studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and later worked for the Hallmark greeting card company. His work is in private collections on the mainland as well as locally. His cartoons have appeared in The V.I. Daily News and he has been commissioned to create a tourism map of Havensight Mall that will be available at the Visitor Center near the cruise ship dock.
Deanna Drake's first artistic love was photography; she started painting only when a friend departed St. Thomas and left his easel and art supplies behind. She likes to depict seascapes and favorite landmarks and has been a featured artist at a Da Da Wine Down gathering and at Tropical Memories.
The two both have separate careers, but they enjoy painting together for relaxation on weekends at their Fortuna home overlooking the sea. Both are experimenting with mediums other than acrylic.
The show will hang through Nov. 8. For additional information about the reception and the exhibition, call Alexander Treml at 774-4349.
