Steven Epstein: The Pedestrian Absurd

2022 International Juried Exhibition Solo Exhibition Award

Steven Epstein grew up in the New York area and now lives in New Jersey. He considers himself a semi-educated artist in that he’s taken classes at places like the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan but doesn’t have any degrees in art. He does much of his learning through work. To him painting is often an adventure in a search for meaning, a record of a discourse between what’s going on inside and outside of him. His work often has a gritty feel reflecting an interest in noir and jazz. There are expressionist influences and boundary crossing between the representational and abstract. There is often an exploration of underlying patterns suggested in compositions involving heightened impressions, atmosphere and mood of the seeming commonplace. Current work can include the additional use of collage materials to his acrylic painting. Lately he has been more intuitive and experimental as a result of the introspection from the current circumstances of his retirement coinciding with the restrictions of the past few years.

Epstein was selected for a solo show at the Monmouth Museum for their 2014 Emerging Artist Series. He’s been part of dual artist shows at the Hamilton Street Gallery in 2016 (Road Work) and 2019 (Midnight Mercury). While working as an x-ray technician he had paintings on 7 covers of the trade magazine “Radiologic Technology” after being a winner in their cover contest.

Gregory Hennen: Where I Wander

2022 International Juried Exhibition Solo Exhibition Award

Gregory Hennen is a landscape painter whose work is inspired by his extensive time spent in nature which included 15 years as the property manager for Manitou Point Nature Preserve in Garrison, NY. While there he was responsible for designing and maintaining over 4 miles of trails along the Hudson River property. He makes graphite sketches that are often followed by small gouache paintings in preparation for more complex oil paintings created in the studio.

He earned his BFA from Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic, CT. His work has been shown nationally, including group exhibitions at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Huntsville Museum of Art, University of Southern Mississippi and the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences. His painting Ridge View Wyatt Mountain was selected for the cover of the 15th edition of The Bedford Reader. His work is in the public collections of Pfizer Inc., Greenwich Public Library, Greenwich, CT and in numerous private collections. The artist has been represented by Kenise Barnes Fine Art, Kent, CT since 2002. He lives and works in Virginia.
