Stephen Moscowitz will exhibit “Birds and Other Stuff” from October 18-20 at the Society of Bluffton Artists (SoBA) Center for Creative Arts, located next door to the SoBA gallery on Church Street in Old Town Bluffton. Come meet the artist at the opening reception at 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18th. His exhibit will feature acrylic paintings of wild life, real life and still life.
Moscowitz is a lifelong artist who studied at the Rochester Institute of Technology, School of Art and Design. He earned wide recognition as an illustrator for several years until he moved on to creating fine art with wildlife. He derives inspiration from birds of the Lowcountry, as well as still life and landscape painting.
“When I moved to the Lowcountry, I discovered the world of birds,” Stephen said. “Herons and egrets of all sizes and colors. In the Lowcountry, these birds are everywhere — even in my backyard. So, I have taken and borrowed photos of birds eating, swimming, wading and flying. Using photos as reference gives my birds proper stature and realistic features.”
