Myron Hansen at the Hermitage Art Gallery

July 7 – November 11, 2018

The Morean and Hermitage Apartment Homes are partnering to bring recognition to our local artists by way of exhibition space. The first floor lobby of the  Hermitage, located two blocks from the Morean, is a beautiful, airy, contemporary space–perfect for showcasing artwork. See Myron Hansen’s thoughtful abstract paintings at the Hermitage Apartment Homes lobby, located at 151 7th Street S in St. Petersburg.

Myron Hansen taught art for many years, including 24 years at Pinellas County Center for the Arts (PCCA), an arts magnet program for high school students. His formal education includes a BS in Art from Dana College in Blair, NE, and an MA in Art from the University of Northern Iowa. His own art has been exhibited in a wide variety of museums and galleries.

About his latest body of work, Myron states:  “Many of my paintings were influenced by lines in nature.  Recently I have started working more directly from my imagination beginning with a basic design concept and color.  I seldom put these thoughts on paper before beginning to paint.  As I begin, my original design concepts are open to change and my movements are very fluid.    Discovery is an important part of the process and small changes can have a big effect.  The immediacy of working this way is risky, but it keeps the painting fresh.  I want the finished painting to express my energy as well as aesthetic.”
