Steve Lyons

Steve Lyons’s work is fast becoming some of the most recognized art in the USA and Europe. He gained recognition in 2012 for his signature "Momento Paintings" -- small coastal studies and abstracts on scrap lumber -- when they were "discovered" by an international art critic from Europe.  Much of his acclaim has resonated from his re-invention of the impasto technique, which some cultural writers call "sculpted painting." With this signature technique, Lyons separates himself from typical impasto artists by creating singular tactile images, such as waves, faces and floral designs. 

 

In 2018, Lyons was named "One of the Top 15 Artists in the World to Watch" by Art Tour International Magazine. In 2017, Lyons was named 2nd in the world in Abstract Expressionism for “Women and the Universe.” Other awards include, in In 2016, "One of the Top 5 Abstract Expressionist Artists in the World" by the American Art Award,  being the first American to win the shared exhibition prize at the Stadtgalerie, Westerland, Germany, and the first American to open the Independence Day Celebrations in La Paz, Mexico. In 2014, he was the first American awarded private mentorship with Finland’s premier living artist and designer, Markku Piri. In March 2015, Lyons made international news when he was the victim of an art heist totaling $100,000. His art was eventually recovered with the help of the Berlin Art Theft unit. His work has been exhibited all over the world, including Freising (Munich), and Berlin, Germany, La Paz, Mexico and Poznan, Poland, as well as New Haven, CT, Boston, MA, Old Greenwich, CT, and Cincinnati, OH, and is held in collections by individuals and institutions.

 

His 2018 and 2019 exhibition schedule includes a variety of European locations including Barcelona and Madrid, Spain; Moscow, Russia; as well as Milan and London. His exhibition "Creativity Unbound" opened in July, 2018 at the luxurious ME Resort, Terramar, Sitges, Spain, to acclaim from the press and art collectors.

 

Lyons was born and raised in Portsmouth, Ohio, located on the northern banks of the Ohio River. He began painting as a child and by age eight had won his first competition, in Canton, Ohio. He earned a B.A. at Eastern Kentucky University, and an M.A. at Louisiana State University—where he majored in journalism and minored in art and was a Walter Hitesman scholarship recipient. 

 

Before calling Chatham, MA home, he resided in New York City, New Haven, CT and Boston. You can see Steve’s work at his working Gallery, Steve Lyons Gallery, in Chatham. He has been featured in numerous publications, including HuffingtonPost, Du Jour magazine and Art of the Times as well as the award winning television show, Chronicle.

Eric Davis

Eric is currently enrolled in the pure math Ph.D. program at the University of New Hampshire. Growing up in Hudson MA, Eric was always passionate about art and creative expression. In his senior year at Hudson High School, he won the coveted Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards Silver Key. Upon entering college, Eric's interests shifted towards mathematics and formal logic; fields seemingly incompatible with painting. However, his love of math manifests itself in his work through the exploration of structure, pattern, and repetition. Influenced by his study of geometry and form, Eric's works play with sharp lines, harsh angles, and defined edges. He plans to continue exploring the connections between art and mathematics.

Scott Farrell

After 22 years working in the media industry, Scott made the decision to follow a more personal, meaningful path by officially launching Scott Farrell Photography in March of 2012.  His scope of work covers everything from landscapes, nature, and rural and urban scenes to architectural and abstract photography.

 

A marketing major from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Scott's first cognizant introduction to the power of photography came from a high school Humanities class writing assignment about Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans and the FSA.  The project had a profound influence that lead to his development as a photographer.  

 

"Each time I look through the viewfinder and capture an image I can’t help but wonder how photographers Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, or Ansel Adams might have seen the frame.  I also contemplate how painters Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, and J.M.W. Turner might have interpreted a particular scene with regard to texture, tone, composition, and lighting.  These influences are omnipresent as inspiration and fountainheads of my appreciation for the art of photography."
