Ocean County Library Jackson Branch presents Steve Moran Art Exhibit in June and July

(JACKSON TOWNSHIP, NJ) -- The Ocean County Library Jackson Branch is pleased to present an exhibit of airbrushings and paintings by Toms River artist Steve Moran throughout the months of June and July. Steve’s extensive portfolio of oil and acrylic paintings includes images of people, wildlife and marine life, florals, still life, and landscapes. In addition to canvas, his work has appeared on cars, motorcycles, and clothing, and for clients including Michael Jackson, Michael Bolton and members of America’s Top Model.

Born into a creative family, Steve sold his first art piece at age 7 and drew considerable influence in ensuing years from his father, a commercial artist, and from graphic novels, especially drawings by sci-fi icon Frank Frazetta. 

A discussion with a clergyman, Steve said, led him to philosophical studies that influenced his art. “I believe art is energy,” he said. “That’s what I try to convey. Colors vibrate at different frequencies. We should surround ourselves with music, art, poetry, plants, to increase our own vibrations.”

Steve added that meeting physical challenges prompted him to infuse his art with a message of empowerment. “I hope that, knowing my story, people will say, ‘Maybe I should start drawing, or taking that cooking class,’ or whatever they want to do. If I can do it, anybody can do it.”

You can meet Steve during the Artist’s Reception on Saturday, June 24 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
