Don’t Miss “Bugs and Places” By Stephen Shooster At Mills Art Gallery Through January 13, 2023

Bugs and Places By Stephen “Shoosty” Shooster Will Be Exhibited At Mills Art Gallery Until January 13, 2023

Mills Art Gallery in Orlando is hosting a new exhibit through January 13, 2023. Bugs By Stephen “Shoosty” Shooster is the newest exhibition at Mills Art Gallery. Shoosty’s work is recognizable by his trademark uses of color and shape. Shoosty’s work is influenced by travel, music, nature, and family. His fine works of art take each viewer on a wild ride invoking the spirits of Picasso, Braque, Gauguin, Chagall, Matisse, Ad Reinhardt, and even Illustrated Manuscripts to create his paintings which range from the sublime to groovy.

Shoosty’s sculpture and paintings appear in public and private collections across the globe. Shoosty’s artistic ability with his passion for technology and lifelong learning keep him constantly inquisitive and creative. Shoosty is as comfortable with oil paints as he is with technology. A main concern for Shoosty is using the arts to provide creative leadership to those that surround him, and to constantly challenge himself to think and create in innovative ways.
