    “The City”

    Opening Reception

    Thursday, December 4, 2003





    Anthem Gallery is thrilled to present “The City,” featuring cityscapes and landmark montage paintings that highlight the unique mix of history and vitality that is New York City. Born in Macon, Georgia, Steve Penley has quickly become one of the most popular artists emerging from the South. Although his subject matter is always familiar, Penley’s ability lies in his reinterpretation which, when combined with the viewer’s personal sense of the image, allows it to be reborn. Paint splatters, drips, and strong brushwork add to the visual excitement of Penley’s canvases, at the core of which lie the artist’s mastery of color and composition. Anthem hosted Penley’s New York debut this spring and is pleased to welcome back the warmth and vitality of his works to our walls this December.
