The Red Bluff Art Gallery will be showing the work of Lake California artist John Norman Stewart during the month of December, 2011. He will be displaying his work up front in the Windows Gallery and is concentrating on displaying smaller pieces that are done in oil and acrylics.
John studied art at Chouinard Art Institute, and later at Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles. He worked for 25 years as a scenic artist, portrait artist and illustrator for various film studios: Disney, Universal, Paramount, MGM etc. His highlight was meeting and painting a portrait of Bette Davis on location in Ohio. His work has been exhibited far and wide in many different art venues. Locally he is a core member of The Red Bluff Art Gallery, and has shown at The Five Windows Gallery and Highland Art Center, both in Weaverville, CA.
He was recently chosen to be in the collection of Michael Johnson’s California Watercolor Gallery in Fallbrook, California. It’s a special honor to be shown alongside of artists like Rex Brandt, Milford Zornes and Maynard Dixon.
John will also have copies of his book “Aqueous” that was published in July of this year.
