Gallery at the Garden features artwork by Steve Lloyd
During August, the Gallery at the Garden will feature artwork by Steve Lloyd.
Steve is returning to painting after a long focus on his architectural career. The luxury of time to paint and the input from his fellow artists in Brattleboro West Arts have encouraged him to explore new approaches, featuring both abstract and representational subjects in acrylic and watercolor.
During his years in Connecticut he served as president of the Essex Art Association in Essex, where he exhibited. He had a two-person show at the Chester Gallery in 2001 and a solo show at Congregation Beth Shalom Redfe Zedek in 2002.
His work was shown at Mitchell Giddings Fine Art in late 2014. One of his acrylics was juried into the Regional Biennial at The Thorne Sagendorf Gallery in Keene in 2015. He had a one person show at the Crowell Gallery in Newfane in May, exhibited with Gallery One Artists in April in Connecticut and will be in a two-person show at Reynolds Fine Art in New Haven, CT in July and August. He has been named artist-in-residence at LaVignette in Dinan, France for the month of September.
Color and composition play major roles in this group of representational and abstract acrylics and watercolors. Subjects range from imaginary landscapes to familiar local farms (reinterpreted) to abstract compositions reflecting the artist’s architectural background. A few pieces were originally conceived at the suggestion of Strolling of the Heifers, to celebrate farms open to visitors, others were created at the Gibson Senior Center where artists meet weekly to explore watercolor painting.
