Watercolors by Roland "Chip" Stevens
Wayne County Council for the Arts is pleased to present Watercolors by Roland “Chip” Stevens. Roland is one of the noted watercolor artists in the Rochester, New York area today. His continuous growth and development as a plein air painter in his pursuit of watercolor has enabled him to be accepted into numerous national, state and regional juried exhibitions.

Mr. Roland states, “As an architect, having been trained to explore the multiple possibilities of every design, I have found it equally exciting and rewarding to apply that training towards watercolor painting. I search for natural subject matter that presents an interesting challenge, frequently changing the focal point of interest by how I apply color. I usually sketch directly and apply some under-glazes to set up a theme and depending on how quickly it dries, will proceed, allowing numerous options to remain open for shifting the focal point. The challenge and excitement is in not recording all the facts but in trying to capture a likeness while experiencing a unique and unpredictable outcome.”

A native of Rochester, NY, Roland resides in Pultneyville, New York with his wife Georgia, who is his enthusiastic supporter. Upon graduation from Syracuse School of Architecture, Roland studied privately with Jossey Bilan, a noted painter in Keene, New York. For the past thirty years, he has had a career as a county planner and architect. In addition to his art that he has been pursuing more avidly since retiring as an architect, he has found more time to sail, ski and travel.

Mr. Roland will be teaching an Intermediate Watercolor class at Wayne Arts, Monday thru Friday, August 22nd – 26th (9:00 am – 4:00 pm). Daily attendance available. For registration, supply list and questions contact Wayne Arts at 315/331-4593.
