DARIEN, Conn. – The Geary Gallery of Darien will present “Meditation on Landscapes” featuring the outdoor landscape paintings of Stamford artist Tim Eaton from Tuesday, June 7 through Thursday, July 7.
A decorative painter for more than 30 years with a specialty painting and restoration business, Eaton is also a landscape artist.
Growing up in Maine, the outdoors was where Eaton spent most of his time and at a very young age, was inspired to create his art. After graduating from high school and during his college and young adult years, Eaton said he traveled the world painting watercolors en plein air primarily in France, as well as Italy, Turkey and China. Over the years, Eaton moved indoors to paint using modified oils, calling on his memory and imagination to inspire his work.
"In a studio, you can paint as long as you want and take as much time as you like," said Eaton. "I paint for myself. I don't paint for someone else's visual pleasure, but for my own satisfaction."
Eaton holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont. He spent a full year under the instruction of Richard Whitney, who at the time was the youngest member of the Boston Guild of Professional Portrait and Landscape Painters. Subsequently, he spent two years studying painting techniques at the National School of Decorative Arts in Nice, France. Eaton is a member of the trade group Painting and Decorating Contractors of America.
Having moved to Stamford about five years ago from Westchester County, he is continuing to establish his restoration business in Connecticut while working wherever jobs take him.
The exhibit is open to the public and admission is free. Geary Gallery, is at 576 Boston Post Road, Darien, and is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and
