The distinctive watercolors of Stan Myers are characterized by his sensitive observation to detail expressed through his vivid palette. “I use brilliant color,” he says, “to capture the feeling of light and atmosphere, at the moment of the experience. Light on a surface reveals the object, but more, the mood and substance of that single moment I have been captivated by and desire to share with the viewer. How can any of us help but want to share special moments of discovery with another.” Born in northwestern Ohio in the mid 1950s, Myers received an associate degree in technology from the Fort Wayne School of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Calvin College. A member of the prestigious American Watercolor Society, he has worked as a freelance artist and private teacher. He has exhibited in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he now resides, as well as Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. He has participated in national and state competitive exhibitions receiving recognition through several awards. His paintings are included in private, corporate, government and museum collections throughout the U.S.A.
