Steuben artist Bob Bryson will exhibit paintings and drawings at the Henry D. Moore Library in Steuben from July 30th until August 31st as part of the Library’s FeaturedArtist Series. An opening reception is scheduled for Monday, July 30th from 6-8pm at thelibrary and all are welcome.
The exhibit will include landscape scenes, coastal views, fields, and hills between Bar Harbor and Machias, including a few Steuben scenes. There will also be several “non-landscape” works exhibited. Bryson works primarily in acrylics, ink, graphite, and pastel and uses a wide variety of subject matter, including landscapes, seascapes, birds, portraits, and dream or surrealistic images. His landscapes “speak for themselves” but he
sometimes incorporates subtle “alterations or enhancements” into the detail to encourage or accentuate particular statements or beliefs.
Bryson graduated from the University of Maine at Orono with a degree in Art Education and has exhibited extensively throughout Maine, as well as in other parts of the country. His work is included in private and corporate collections in this country and abroad. He
was involved in the creation of the very successful “Paint Steuben” project last year, painted the 4’ x 45’ mural in the children’s section of the the Steuben Library, recently worked with the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders at the Ella Lewis School to create a mural
depicting historical and geographical aspects of Steuben which currently hangs in the gymnasium, and is the Editorial Cartoonist for the Machias Valley News Observer.
The exhibit can be viewed during library hours. Visit our website at www.moorelibrary.org for more information about this and other events or call 546-2858 or
