Please join us this Wednesday and Thursday, June 23rd and 24th, at the gallery (772 West Beech Street, Long Beach, New York 11561) for our world-renowned artist, Steve Tracy’s “Meet and Greet”. A few of Steve’s paintings can be found on www.beechstreetgallery.com.
Steve Tracy resides in London, Canada and Lake Worth, Florida. He is an international artist with a permanent exhibition at the Empire State Building in New York City. Steve is a visual art instructor in Canada, Colorado, Hawaii and Key West.
Steve trained in New York with Deborah Remington and Lowell Nesbitt; having attended the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Later he graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art and furthered his studies in California with noted artist Win Ng at the Belcher Studios in San Francisco. Eventually he acquired an artist’s studio in San Francisco and became obsessed in the quest to make art. During that venture of experimentation and development, he took his last day job at a film company. Steve was a scenic artist and stage manager of an EMMY award winning team at HBO. The film industry was very exciting and taught him a lot about special effects, miniature work, and point of view set design. Most exciting was learning that the world was his pallet.
Returning to his studio to work late into the night and on weekends, Steve was able to continue to develop his painting. Shooting film was month’s on-and-off-work, so there were many times in between films that he was totally saturated in just his art. He would take trips to paint around California, Key West, Hawaii, and New Orleans. His artwork reflects many of these travels.
Steve is represented in galleries across the United States, including Key West, New York, Kauai, Hawaii, Colorado and Canada. Steve recently completed a commission from a private party that will donate the masterpiece to the Hemingway Museum in Oak Park, Illinois.
