The term ‘reflections’ does not simply suggest a moment in time of growth and meditation. It also relates to the manifestation caused by a distinctive nostalgic experience. Along with other various reasons for selecting the title for the show, the pivotal allegory associated with each piece of art provides insight and revelation as key aspects among both artists. 

Peter Russom

Peter Russom was born and raised in Mechanicville, New York. The visual properties of Peter’s early paintings were influenced by the rural and industrial landscapes found in that region. The imagery, color, and surfaces of his current work have developed from his time spent in Italy. Conceptually, his art addresses the contrasting concerns of spirituality and temporal experience. Peter received his undergraduate degree from SUNY Plattsburgh where his studies were focused on painting, art history, and philosophy. In 1987 he completed the Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Peter’s drawings and paintings have been included in national and international exhibitions for more than thirty years. His works are included in numerous private, public, and corporate collections in Canada, South Korea, and throughout the United States. Peter is a professor at SUNY Plattsburgh. He and his family live in Port Kent, NY.

Winosha Steele

Born in the Bronx but raised in the Caribbean for the majority of her life, Winosha Steele was introduced to art at the age of five. Her earlier years were filled with bliss and creative adrenaline. Steele received her B.F.A. degree from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2021. She has exhibited her work in numerous local and regional exhibitions along with receiving multiple merit awards for her paintings. In addition, one of her drawings has been placed into the permanent collection of the Plattsburgh State Art Museum. Steele’s vision is to expand her artistic horizon while embracing her Antiguan heritage. Each piece brings a new version of Winosha that compels people to question their pre-concise notion of black history as well as to seek ways to make you ponder. The structure of her work is molded on the foundations of heritage, culture, race, and religion. Whether it be the colors, the figures, or the treatment within each piece.
