About the speaker
First there was craft. Then there was art. Then there was Duchamp. Local surrealist painter Steven Kenny leads us in considering the role and significance of craft throughout art history; perhaps broadening its definition in the process.
Steven Kenny was born in 1962 in Peekskill, NY and received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1984. He began his 34-year art career as an award-winning commercial illustrator and transitioned to painting full-time in 1997. He exhibits internationally and his work can be found in private and museum collections around the globe.
Roundhouse is a creative production studio rooted in video, motion graphics, and powerful storytelling. From their self-sustaining net-zero studio in sunny St. Pete, they provide clients from coast to coast with stories that evoke emotion and inspire action. As the CreativeMornings/SP headquarters and A/V partner, the studio provides monthly support to the chapter’s ongoing operation.
