Press Release

The Tibor de Nagy Gallery is pleased to present new paintings by Stuart Shils. The exhibition will comprise cityscapes from Stuart’s native Philadelphia, and New York City, along with landscapes from Umbria, Italy. The artist, who in the past has worked no larger than 12 x 14 inches, has expanded his scale to include diptych paintings four times this size. Working on-site he is able to capture the rich colors of the Italian countryside, along with the play of light and shadow against the row houses and buildings of Philadelphia and New York City.

Stuart Shils has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Ireland. He received a B.F.A. from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and an Academy Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York.

An exhibition catalogue is available.
