An opening reception from 2:00pm-4:00pm, for artist Stephen Protoss’ show of new work displaying in the Cafe during the month of October 2016.
Stephen Protoss is a popular art teacher at Rondout Valley Schools and a very inventive artist. Though well versed in the western tradition with degrees in Art from SUNY New Paltz; his personal influences include graffiti and tattoo art, which still show in his work. Another unique influence is having served as a Combat Illustrator for the US Marines.
Equally adept with oil, acrylic and watercolors, his canvases are hard to define in terms of style, merging realism and modern formalism with his personal brand of pop culture. His work is always inventive, sometimes devilishly humorous and stunningly beautiful.
