Artist’s Reception for Internationally Acclaimed Artist Stephen Koury

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Come one, come all to behold the breathtaking works of one of the “world’s finest contemporary wildlife artists”! (Portfolio Press, Books for Collectors, New York, NY.)  The stunning artwork of internationally acclaimed artist Stephen Koury will be at the Lakeland Campus Art Gallery through the month of March, and we cordially invite you to join us there for an Artist’s Reception on Friday, March 9, 2012 from 5-7 pm. You are also warmly welcomed to enjoy Stephen’s work at the free art show, from March 2-30, 2012, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Stephen has been called one of the great naturalists of our time, as well as being a highly respected practitioner of his art. His works are sought after by museums, galleries, and collectors across North America and around the world. Stephen pays tribute to the wonders of the natural world through his paintings, and his artistic visions engage the viewer to be swept away into his world, the world of nature. He uses vivid colors and creates fabulous textures in the creatures and habitats he depicts. Stephen moves you to where you want to be in nature, stimulating your senses…one can feel the breath, hear the call, and see the perfect imperfections that make life unique.

Stephen infuses his passion for respecting and giving back to nature into all his art, knowing that these are key to keeping the little bit of true wild we have left, in the hope that it will grow strong and healthy as it once was. He knows that it is up to each of us to do our share and preserve the precious natural world for our future generations.

Please RSVP for the Artist’s Reception by March 2 to Ileana Kniss at 863-292-3703. The Lakeland Campus Art Gallery is located in the Technology Building (LTB.)  Refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
