Description

Philip Wallace will be exhibiting his paintings in The Oresman Gallery at the Larchmont Public Library, in a new exhibition that opens May 2nd and extends to May 30th and is called “What We See and What We Feel.

 

There will be an Artist Reception for Philip Wallace in the Oresman Gallery on Saturday, May 11 between 2 and 4 pm, and is open to the public.

 

As a child growing up in Brooklyn during the Great Depression, Philip’s parents gave him a copybook and a pencil so he could amuse himself. He started drawing pictures. Now and then, he would take an art class if it were offered for free. When he retired from account management in advertising, Philip took lessons in watercolor at the Westchester County Center and began painting with oils at the Artists' Barn in Ridgewood, NJ, studying with Chip Osborne.


“I have always felt that creative people are only limited by the number of disciplines they master,” said Philip. In his case, he has published two historic novels on the early American Navy, produced two travel films - Majesty of America, on the natural beauty of our country, which won a Cine Golden Eagle Award and represented the U.S. in foreign competition, and Just Off Main Street, which is about what insiders know and what outsiders often miss in great American cities.


Today, Philip enjoys painting landscapes and seascapes as well as creating abstract art. In short, he enjoys anything that involves the creative process.
