Mr.Ouellette will be offering two FloArts courses this Fall Term at St. Johns River State College, St. Augustine Campus: Drawing I and Two-Dimensional Design

His work encompasses a career of visual creativity working in all media.

“I tend to develop works with an energy and intensity and a power in abstract form that presents themselves almost as a story,” explains Ouellette, “with characters, plots and subplots, beginnings, ends, all of which can be read by the viewer, however which is subject to their own interpretation and imagination.” Ouellette’s work can be found in many private and corporate collections. He has exhibited in galleries and art centers throughout Florida.

The exhibit will be on display from June 21 to September 23. For more information, contact the St. Johns Cultural Council at 904-471-9980.
