Winslow Myers: “A Life in Art”
October 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Winslow Myers was born in New York City in 1941. The son of Edward and Julia Myers, he grew up in Walpole and earned degrees from Princeton, Boston University, and Queens College.
In 1969 he received a Max Beckmann Fellowship for study at the Brooklyn Museum Art School. He taught studio art and art history for 40 years at various schools and colleges, including the Bancroft School, Exeter Academy, Clark University, Assumption College, and the Rhode Island School of Design, receiving an award from Assumption for excellence in teaching.
He returned to Maine in 2012 to live and work year-round in Bristol with his partner, the painter Patti Bradley. He has taught courses for the Coastal Senior College and serves on the Boards of the Coastal Senior College, the Damariscotta-Newcastle Rotary, and the War Prevention Initiative of Portland, OR. He has shown his paintings and drawings at the Worcester Art Museum, the Berkshire Art Museum, the Fitchburg Art Museum, the Boston University Art Gallery, Round Top Center for the Arts, and the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, VT among others.
Myers is the author of Living Beyond War: A Citizen’s Guide, published in 2007, and of the upcoming monograph on his teacher, the Canadian-American painter Walter Tandy Murch, to be published in 2018.
Since 2002 he has been working on a series called “Passages,” of large two-panel paintings that explore the interrelationship of the natural and industrial worlds.
He is represented by Yvette Torres Fine Art in Rockland, the George Marshall Store Gallery in York, the Petrel Fine Art gallery at his home in Bristol, and on line at www.winslowmyers.com. Winslow will talk about his half-century involvement with painting.
