Lopez Island artist Steven Hill was honored to have two paintings juried into a regional exhibit “Contemporary Marine Artists of the West” that opened Friday, Jan. 19, at Knowlton Gallery in Lodi, Calif. His works were selected from 68 entries, narrowed to 34 artists from California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington and Nevada, by Donald Demers, who is a fellow of the American Society of Marine Artists and noted marine painter from Maine.

Hill was also recently featured in an article “Taking on the Big Apple,” with seven other artists from around the world, in ArtisSpectrum Magazine, (Vol. 28), published by Agora Gallery, Chelsea, NYC. He will be showcasing his third solo exhibit at Agora Gallery, with an opening reception on June 6.
Hill’s works can be seen locally at Crow Valley Gallery, Eastsound and Windswept Fine Art Gallery on Lopez Island.
The painting called “Fog Lifting, Monterey Bay,” is one of Hill’s pieces selected and was done en plein air, from Monterey Wharf, during the 2011 Carmel Art Festival.
