By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by American 

landscape painter Brent Seevers (born 1977  in Saint Joseph, Missouri). 

Brent Seevers was born and raised in Saint Joseph, Missouri, a historic city on the riverbanks of the Missouri River.  Like many from the Midwestern United States, he is of Old German (Siebers) and Irish descent.  He is an Impressionist of the Missouri River Valley and a founder of a fine art society.

Seevers is primarily a self-taught artist with very little formal art training. Though, he studied art during his first two years in college, he ended up graduating with a business degree instead.  Drawing has always been a niche in his life, a natural in draftsmanship.  Throughout his youth he worked in graphite and charcoal, a basic drawing medium emphasized through the public schools.  It wasn't until later in his life he became interested in working with color.  Since 2004, Seevers has studied and taught himself, entirely on his own, how to interpret the world in pastels.  Quickly mastering this method of drawing, it gave him opportunities to exhibit his work and has become his primary choice of dry medium.
 

Seevers is one of the four founders of the Missouri Valley Impessionist Society (MVIS), a painting society that unifies representational impressionism throughout the Missouri River Valley Region.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist

                       ARTIST'S STATEMENT


“Drawing is my foundation and the most basic form of art.  Drawing the world has always brought me great pleasure, whether it is visually in front of me, or mentally.  It is from this foundation that helps me to interpret life in oils.  I create the world with a focus of composition, using positioning and placement as my main ingredient.  Modern Impressionism is my style as I find it to be the most influential and the most appealing of the representational art forms.
