William B. Hoyt: Realizations
Green Mountain Fine Art Gallery is pleased to present Realizations, a show of new paintings by prominent Vermont artist William B. Hoyt. This extensive body of oil paintings represents Hoyt’s first show in Vermont in many years, and his unique compositions are drawn from scenes and objects experienced in everyday life. The show opens with a public reception on Saturday, December 7 from 5-7pm, coinciding with Stowe Vibrancy’s holiday event “A Traditional Christmas in Stowe”. The show runs through February 28.
Hoyt’s exquisitely detailed, classic realism moves us through the depths of both the seen and unseen of the everyday. Prosaic scenes become dramatic pictorial moments of breathtaking beauty. His choice of objects and scenes, often juxtaposed against a backdrop of symbolism, create a new and personal world. Each piece causes the viewer to contemplate the artist’s vantage point and situation as he developed and completed the painting so flawlessly.
Born in New Haven, CT, William B. Hoyt grew up in Newport, Rhode Island where his love of nature and sailing took force. He attended Yale where he came under the influence of numerous important artists and mentors: Jack Tworkov, Joseph Albers, and Sewall Sillman. Hoyt’s studies with Walker Evans, the internationally renowned photographer, infused in him his love for composition and storytelling. Hoyt’s paintings are found in public and private collections internationally.
