Steve Bowersock Patrick McCay Helen Bess

The two Bowersock "newcomers" are mature career artists who have developed strong voices. Helen Bess creates assemblage/sculpture that puts a personal, contemporary twist on tramp art. The work of Patrick McCay, an Irish born Scottish/American painter, combines abstract and figurative elements, which demonstrates his love of color and composition.

Also featured, new works by surreal artist Steve Bowersock, an outstanding collection of Todd Bonita's sought-after boats (rare large canvas works), and new collection by Christopher Volpe.

Bowersock exhibits works by more than three dozen outstanding regional and international fine art and craft artists working in myriad medium including bronze, metals, oil, acrylic, clay, mache, encaustic, textile, pastel, mixed media, photography and print making.

WILLIAM THOMSON (March 16, 1931 - October 9, 2014)

His work runs the gambit: landscapes, cityscapes, interior and figurative works, in either acrylic, encaustic, egg tempera, oil or watercolor, most often in warm, rich, earth tones.

There is a power in his works which defies definition. Each, even the most abstract, is imbued with such a strong sense of emotion that it’s impossible not to feel moved. Bill works in all kinds of mediums from acrylic, encaustic, egg tempera, oil to watercolor but somehow they all tie together producing an amazing image. The discovery of how mediums operate, individually or in combination, is what drives this artist.
