Valdosta - The works of Georgia artist Steve Penley can be seen in museums around the world.  Now, they can also be seen in Charlie Trippers.

The artist, who was also named Georgia's Author of the Year in 2003, visited the Valdosta restaurant to sign the updated re-release of his book titled "Penley" and show off some of his creations.

Painting historic icons and landscapes, the artist has created what he calls Expressionistic realism. 
"I paint paintings of historical icons known by popular culture and then manipulate the images in an expressionistic style and that's where I came up with expressionistic realism," Penley said.

Penley's paintings will continue to hang at Charlie Trippers and be sold to interested customers.
