Gary St. Ivany
I paint everyday in my studio overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. My paintings are in numerous private, corporate and public collections through out the world. They have been featured in the magazines Columbia Home and Life, Kansas City Home and Garden, St. Louis Homes and Lifestyles, and Lake Lifestyles. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, featured the developing art community at the Lake of the Ozarks and included my art in the article. I currently have paintings at the The Vine Wine Bar and Gallery in Osage Beach, Missouri, Country Club Hotel and Spa in Lake Ozark, Missouri, Teller’s Bar and Gallery, Columbia, Missouri, and Dunklin Street Gallery in Jefferson City, Missouri. I am a member of the Columbia Art League, and show my paintings annually at Art in The Park.
My paintings are done primarily in oil and acrylic and I stretch my own canvases to fit unique frames that I select for my paintings. My style is flowing and varies from impressionistic to abstract, but always with strong design and a vibrant use of color. My subjects include landscapes, portraits, animals, and abstract designs.
I make my art for the pure pleasure, joy and beauty that art can bring. I want my paintings to evoke an emotion from the viewer.
