Artists' Reception – Paintings by Peter M. Steeves

Friday, July 20, 2018

The Elmhurst Artists’ Guild (“EAG”) will host The Point of the Dream, featuring original dot paintings by EAG Board Member, Peter M. Steeves, in the EAG Gallery at the Elmhurst Art Museum (EAM), 150 S. Cottage Hill Ave., Elmhurst, from July 15 through August 10, 2018. The public is invited to the opening reception on Friday, July 20, 2018 from 7:00 to 9:00pm where they can meet the artist and learn about his unique painting style and somnambulistic paintings. Steeves, who lives in Valparaiso, IN, and works in Naperville, IL, is a self-taught artist with a career that has spanned over twenty-five years exhibiting throughout the Chicagoland area. His work includes elements of surrealism, primitive symbolic and postmodern realism focusing on the emotion of images and pointillistic, dot patterns. The subjects of the paintings are pulled from his subconscious and transferred to the canvas to allow both artist and viewer to analyze the meaning.
