Stephan Haley

 

Stephan Haley from Penobscot Maine, creates woodcut-like works on paper with water-based relief printing ink, both as monoprint and editioned prints.  “A lot of my art has been informed by the traditional Japanese print, American realist painting and the Maine landscape.”

 

Howard Fussiner

 

Howard Fussiner (1923 -2006) was a professor of art at Southern Connecticut College. He studied at Cooper Union, 1947-49, with Robert Gwathmey & John Ferren; Hans Hofmann School, 1948; NY University,1949-52,with Hale Woodruff. His preferred medium was oil paint. Howard was a long time summer resident on Deer Isle, and we glad to show this collection of small colorful paintings of regional scenery.

His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows throughout the mid west and Maine. Jeff moved to Maine in 1999. “Easel painting is one of the most anachronistic endeavors a person can do. I attempt to draw the viewer into other worlds. In my process I become concerned with texture, composition, color, abstraction and division of space.”
