Exhibit: The Unique Work of Steve Storgion

Exhibit: The Unique Work of Steve Storgion
The library is hosting an exhibit of artwork by Steve Storgion, a native Morristown artist, in the second floor F.M. Kirby Gallery from January 18 through March 20. Mr. Storgion has a style reminiscent of Surrealism and Salvador Dali but also of illustrators of fantasy and science fiction novels who painted covers for The Lord of the Rings, Swords of Shannara and other series.

Some of his images incorporate dream-like sequences involving creative creatures or the displacement ofBallerinas and Vultures ballerinas or animals in a bleak or otherworldly setting.  Yet other Storgion paintings almost speak like a Joseph Cornell box for the internet age given all of the figures and activity contained therein.  And even with his surrealistic tendencies, Storgion also has done more traditional seascapes and silhouettes which follow a more traditional artistic method.

Steve Storgion is a lifelong resident of the Morristown and Morris Plains, N.J. area.  He was born to Greek immigrant parents during the Depression and was born, raised and educated in Morristown.  A graduate of Light in the WindowMorristown High School, he was inspired by such artists as Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso.  Steve became a self-taught artist and uses several mediums including acrylics, oils, watercolors and graphite in his paintings.  He currently resides in Morris Plains with his wife, Chris.

The program and exhibition are sponsored by the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
