Stephen LaPierre Walks His Talk

October 8 - November 18
The Paint! Paint! Paint! exhibition at the Cultural Center Studio Gallery features a collection of more than 20 recent paintings in oil of recognizable Rocky Neck locations by resident artist, Stephen LaPierre. Following in the traditions of the many well-known artists who preceded him, from Milton Avery to Edward Hopper, LaPierre recently was seen in the streets and byways of "the Neck" at all times of day, and even night, at his easel to capture the light and mood of the scene before him in paint.
