Nick Reale served as a Pinellas Park Firefighter for 30 years, retiring in 2012 and embarking on an artistic career in Woodturning. He creates beautiful furniture, bowls, and home goods using only local wood from Pinellas County. Many of his works are beloved downed trees from residents that want to somehow preserve the memory of the tree in a piece for their home. His first project was a birdhouse that his wife, Shelly, asked him to make. He liked it so much that he built another one. Things kept rolling from there and now he has his own studio at 1499 Beach Drive SE.
Shelly Steck Reale graduated with a degree in Philosophy (magna cum laude). After graduation she had a head full of creative purpose. As a result, her ceramic sculptures, photography, and writings reflect the unique quality of what it is to be human in an absurd world. She strives to influence the viewer to examine the world around them in a different and unique way. Shelly believes visual arts open up the audience to a whole new world where words fall short.

Artists don’t need to focus on strict guidelines -
but rather self-interpret the theme of the Showcase
Selected artworks will be on exhibit for the month of February 2022 in the Tully-Levine Gallery at the ArtsXchange on the Deuces Corridor located in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. The ArtsXchange campus is one of the most widely visited spots during Second Saturday Artwalk.
