Working Classics by Steve Hessler
Steve Hessler paints representational landscapes in traditional oils on stretched canvas and gessoed panels. Much of his work is painted plein air, although he also paints from sketches and photographs in his studio. "I am a self-taught artist, and what appeals to me about outdoor painting is the opportunity to create quick, uncomplicated images of places about which I have strong feelings." Such places include the historic district of the Carrboro mill village, rural Orange County, where he lives; and, the Carolina coast, especially Topsail Island and Core Sound. Join us for an artist reception during the Chapel Hill Carrboro 2nd Friday Artwalk. Friday, May 11, from 6-8pm.
