George Stevenson to Exhibit in New York City
The President, Board of Governors of the National Arts Club Roundtable
Present GEORGE STEVENSON
After suffering a stroke in 1970 that paralyzed his right arm and left him limp with limited speech, Cold Spring’s George Stevenson turned to art during his recuperation and discovered this previously untapped talent.
Although George still deals with the disabilities of a stroke, he has found painting can be a means of communication. Rosina Florio, Director of the Art Students League of New York, says with pride of her prize student, George's work has won him a scholarship “for as long as he wants to study here.”
Collectors of George's work include the late actor Peter Falk. One thing is certain: George's life is as extraordinary as his art.
Opening Reception: Monday, May 23, 2005, 6 - 8 p.m.
