See the Imaginative Point of the Dream Art Exhibit – Elmhurst BMW Dealer

July 12th, 2018 by

The Elmhurst Artists’ Guild proudly presents The Point of the Dream, a solo exhibition of paintings by member Peter M. Steeves from July 15 through August 10, at the Elmhurst Art Museum. You’re invited to the opening reception on Friday, July 20 from 7-9 p.m. where you can meet the artist and learn about his work. All of us at Elmhurst BMW support the Elmhurst Art Museum and the local artists in the Elmhurst Artists’ Guild. We hope to see you at the opening reception!

The Point of the DreamSteeves brings fragments of his dreams’ imagery to life using a pointillistic (dot) technique of painting. He was originally inspired by Australian Aboriginal art, which uses a dot method of creating images. However, in Steeves’ work, the dots are the focus of the painting, not just the background. The results are dreamy, symbolic paintings that incorporate elements of primitive art, surrealism and postmodern realism.

Steeves is a resident of Valparaiso, Indiana but works in Naperville. He is a self-taught artist whose work has been shown throughout the Chicago area, as well as in Indiana and Michigan

All of Steeves’ paintings that you’ll see at The Point of the Dream exhibition are available for sale. This is a great opportunity to purchase original art at reasonable prices.
