Tom Hussey, will be our featured artist in May. Tom, inspired by grandfather George T. Miller, began painting in oils at age twelve. Over forty years later he has not lost enthusiasm for putting paint on canvas.
Tom opened his Auburn studio in 1998 and has since completed hundreds of landscapes. He frequently paints “en plein air” with oils, and also utilizes acrylics and pastels for studio work.
The Auburn painter finds the Northeast a landscape painter's paradise. “In addition to inspiring local subject material, I also get a chance to see great exhibits by my favorite painters at museums throughout the region,” he notes. Exhibiting at summer festivals throughout the Northeast keeps the artist in touch with a large market, as well as a community of fellow artists.
Tom is a member of the Seneca County Arts Council and Just Desserts Art Guild. He teaches painting classes at the Onondaga Seniors Center.
If you wish to purchase one of Tom's paintings write "sold" and your name on the label, and contact him at www.tomhusseyart.com.
