Andrew Stevovich: Twenty Years of Paintings, Drawings and Prints

September 2 - November 7, 1999

 

In the introduction to the 47-page fully-illustrated exhibition catalogue for Andrew Stevovich: Twenty Years of Paintings, Drawings and Prints, Ronald L. Crusan, Director of the Danforth Museum of Art says: "Andrew's art touches people in a way that not all art can. The narrative he provides on the canvas, though not always spelled out by him, and often interpreted differently by each viewer, is a narrative of the common man, the mysteries and struggles of modern life, and the sometimes simple, sometimes complex relationships between men and women. Andrew has a talent for creating work that appeals to those who look for a simple story line to follow and to those who look beyond the surface. His work is technically superior and aesthetically satisfying, yet deceptively simple in design and color and therefore has a broad appeal."
