Influences of Chagall, Guston, VanGogh Inspire Emerging Artist Seth Butler
Glens Falls, NY Local artist Seth Butler and Friends of Crandall Library are pleased to announce the February 3 opening of an exhibition of Butler’s large scale oil paintings at the Crandall Library Gallery. The library is located at 251 Glen Street in downtown Glens Falls. Featuring 20 original works, the show will run through February 28.
In his large format, vibrantly colored works, Butler fuses classical and fantasy genres with pop culture elements, familiar objects and unblended color strokes reminiscent of the bold line techniques of Van Gogh. Other influences include Marc Chagall’s poetic figurative style and Phillip Guston’s cartoonish approach to realism.
A native of Glens Falls, 43 year-old Butler is a member of the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council (LARAC) and past artist exhibitor in the NYC Outsider Art EXPO. His show entitled “Perception and Reality,” a 2016 Fall Exhibition at the North Country Community College Ticonderoga Campus, promoted collaboration with the art department and nursing department using art and perception to inspire and inform students. Butler has been selected for an upcoming show at The Wiklund Gallery at Tannery Pond Center in North Creek in 2018.
Butler studied fine arts at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. Locally, he has studied with Mark Walp at Adirondack Community College (ACC) and David Miller at Skidmore College.
