Louis Hill Art Show and Sale to Be Held at Largo Public Library
The Greater Largo Library Foundation is presenting during the month of November a Show and Auction of the work of former Belleair Artist Louis Hill who passed away two years ago. Hill's family has given the Greater Largo Library Foundation over 30 of his paintings. Hill was an accomplished artist and a graduate from the Newark (NJ) School of Fine and Industrial Arts. He was a designer for B. Altman and Company from 1948 to 1958. His work was shown at Nessler's Gallery, Petite Gallerie, Inc both in New York City, Florida Gulf Coast Art Center, Cool Art PAVA Show, Octagon Art Center and the Dunedin Art Center. He held many shows at the Largo Public Library throughout his life. His studio was in Belleair.
Stuart Preston of the New York Times was quoted as "Louis Hill's landscape and figure paintings are thoughtfully constructed and robust in both color and technique. He has a fondness for odd shapes of canvas such as long narrow rectangles. And he is at his best when least abstract. His style is a solid version of impressionism, and he is fortified by a literal theme."
The Greater Largo Library Foundation invites the public to come and view and bid on the paintings in the Largo Public Library Art Gallery. The silent auction will conclude on November 30, 2009. Come and place a bid on one or more of the exciting pieces from the Louis Hill Collection. Artist Carolann Mancuso will be in the gallery on Sunday, November 15, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. to answer questions about Hill's work. Also feel free to ask for a Foundation Representative to assist you or call the Greater Largo Library Foundation at 727-586-7398.
