stanlyartsguildlogo

The Stanly Arts Guild in Albemarle, NC, is offering a lecture by Mark Stephenson on Apr. 2, 2015, beginning at 6:30pm. Stephenson will present, “The Creation of a Portrait – The Working Method of John Singer Sargent”.

This event is free and open to the public.

By showing examples of Sargent’s paintings and demonstrating techniques by painting from a live model, Stephenson will help explain how John Singer Sargent created his portraits.

North Carolina native Mark Stephenson is a professional artist based in central NC who through a multi-faceted background, brings a unique perspective to his work. A graduate of Pfeiffer University, North Carolina State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Stephenson earned degrees in Civil Engineering and Music.

With an initial plan to pursue a career in opera, Stephenson relocated to New York City in the 1990s where he eventually found his way to the prestige Art Students League studying with noted painters and sculptors Frank O’Cain, Leonid Gervitz, Nelson Shanks, Ronald Sherr and Leonid Lerman. Success at the Arts Students League ushered in awards and commissions including acceptance at the Metropolitan Musuem of Art’s copyists program. He has also studied with Michael Shane Neal.

Since returning to North Carolina, Stephenson has devoted much of his time to commissioned portraits. He has exhibited in many national juried shows and his work has been featured in solo shows throughout the state. In 2013 he was recognized by the Portrait Society of America with an honorable mention in the self-portrait category in their 2012 Members Only Competition. In May of 2014, Stephenson was artist in residence at La Macina di San Cresci, Italy. He and his wife Caroline have one son, James and a new daughter, Emma.
