Stewart White’s watercolor and oil paintings are incredibly beautiful interpretations of the many places he has traveled. For those who have not traveled to Ireland, or Spain, or the Mediterranean coast Stewart’s paintings transport us there. Opening November 2, an exhibit of Stewart’s recent works titled “Off the Beaten Path: Paintings from My Travels” will be showing at South Street Art Gallery, Easton, MD. The exhibit will run through November 25.
“As an architect I am impressed with Stewart’s command of perspective and his convincing representation of buildings and public spaces. As a collector I covet his work. As an artist I am envious of Stewart’s magical transformation of blank canvas to finished image. And as a gallery, we are proud to represent such an artist!” says Alan Brock, owner of South Street Art Gallery.
Stewart White is an architectural illustrator and fine artist from Baltimore, Maryland. He is one of the rare plein air painters using the medium of watercolor. His background in architectural illustration adds to his skill set and his paintings reflect his knowledge of good design.
