Hospital at St. Raphaels, Art Corridor Exhibit through January 2015
If you are in the New Haven area, stop in to see my recent exhibit in the Art Corridor.
The Shoreline ArtsTrail was initiated in 2002 by a small group of artists and artisans in the Connecticut shoreline towns of Branford, Guilford and Madison. Their intent was to create an annual Open Studios event as a showcase to allow local residents and weekend visitors to interact with the artists and to experience the creative process first-hand.
Now in its fourteenth year, the ArtsTrail and its Open Studio Weekend is better than ever. Armed with one of the thousands of maps distributed throughout Connecticut and its neighboring states, visitors get an intimate view of the artists in their natural habitat. Visitors are able to get a real feel for the artists and their work. One-on-one explanations illuminate the how's and why's that go into the design and development of each piece. The processes that artists use to transform raw materials into finished works of art are as different as they are special. No matter what the medium -- wood, glass, precious metal, paint, fiber, ceramics, stone, photography, or steel -- all require focus, an extended time frame, and skilled hands. Open Studios Weekend provides an opportunity to learn the "art" in each art form. What could be better than combining education, refreshments, and an unparalleled, early holiday shopping experience? Many visitors take the opportunity to initiate discussions of special projects or commissions that they have dreamed about.

Steven focuses primarily on the fluidity and spontaneity of the watercolor medium, with particular emphasis on the intricacies of natural light and it's ability to interact and enhance color. Steven's drawings and paintings are very personal. Each and every one is an attempt at giving back to the viewer, the same feeling that inspired him to paint the subject.
Studio Location: Guilford, CT

Steven is hoping to develop one or more coffee table books based on his subjects. He needs a certain number of dedicated requests in order to place an order for pricing discounts. If you would like to pre-order your copy, click here to send me an email.
