Southern Vermont Arts Center, Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning, and Green Mountain Girls are thrilled to present a program by internationally known artist, Stephen Hannock. Stephen will be interviewed by friend and fellow artist Ned Reade.
The event, “Outside the Artist’s Studio: Meet Modern Master Stephen Hannock” will be a dialogue between two Deerfield Academy classmates. The interviewer Ned Reade, an SVAC artist member, will interview Stephen Hannock on the twists and turns of his journey in the art world.
Stephen Hannock is an American luminist painter known for his atmospheric landscapes and incendiary nocturnes. The artist has demonstrated a keen appreciation for the quality of light and for the limitations of conventional techniques for capturing it. His design of visual effects for the 1998 film What Dreams May Come won an Academy Award.
His works are in collections worldwide, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Bodleian Library, Oxford, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, and the Yale University Art Gallery. Hannock’s painting of the Connecticut River Oxbow was chosen for inclusion in the recently published Metropolitan Museum of Art, Masterpiece Paintings. As well, Hannock and frequent collaborator Sting were the contemporary annex to the recent exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art entitled, Thomas Cole’s Journey, Atlantic Crossings. Hannock’s second monograph will be published by The Artist Book Foundation.
