Stephen L. Crohn Gallery Exhibit: Raymond J Steiner

 September 2018 – October 2018

ARTIST RECEPTION: Friday, September 7, at 4pm

RAYMOND J. STEINER is an art critic/reviewer for ART TIMES, a literary journal he helped found in 1984 and for which he serves as Editor. He has profiled approximately 100 American and European artists for various publications and regularly critiques and/or reviews exhibitions, art books and art videos for ART TIMES. In addition to his articles, Mr. Steiner has written introductory essays for several catalogues and regularly lectures on art and art-related subjects both in the U.S. and abroad. His published works include: The Vessel of Splendor: A Return to the One; The Girl Who Couldn’t See (a book for young adults); 23 Woodstock Artists; Quarry Rubble (a book of poetry); Heinrich J. Jarczyk: Toward a Vision of Wholeness; Heinrich J. Jarczyk: Etchings 1968-1998; The Art Students League of New York: A History; and a novel The Mountain. His works have been translated into German, French, Italian, Chinese, Polish, and Czech.

Landscape painting has been an avocation of his for some years and his method has primarily been to paint on site, alla prima, and, in an effort to capture the spontaneous impression, to confine himself almost exclusively to the use of the palette knife. He has been exhibiting his work since 2004.

He is a member of the American Society of Aesthetics, The Salmagundi Club, Artist Fellowship, Inc., and the International Association of Art Critics (AICA).

He is pleased and appreciative to have this opportunity to show his landscapes at the Library

 In this photo, Saugerties artist Brian Lynch is seen installing a mural [5 x 21 feet] made specifically for our ground floor hallway between the Children’s Section and the Saugerties Public Library Art Gallery.  It was created in connection with his show:  Images from Everyday Life.  The mural is collaged from various Lynch works. You can see many scenes and people depicted in Lynch’s unique style—a style that generates empathy for the human condition.  This unique work is the first site-specific work done for the Library.
