In late 2017 The Art House Gallery announced the Contemporary Gallery Program, an opportunity for artists to apply for a one year professional development appointment that supports their career and business goals. The Art House received numerous applications and worked closely with the Artists in Residence to conduct individual application material reviews and interviews.
After careful consideration, The Art House has awarded the following four artists with the one year Contemporary Gallery Program representation:
John Collins: John Collins is an American painter working mid-to-large scale on canvas, wood and paper. Collins' approach is abstract, combining gestural and geometric compositional elements with an instinctual application of color theory. John Collins' work is influenced by Wassily Kandinsky, Francis Picabia and Mark Rothko, among others. Follow John Collins on Artsy.net.
Steven Thayer Graham: Steven Thayer Graham is a contemporary American painter working mid to large scale in oil and mixed media. Primarily composed of geometric and gestural abstraction, Graham combines bold shapes with intricate line work. Influences include Arshile Gorky, Wasily Kandinsky and Paul Klee.
