Stephen Godsoe Exhibits at Richard Boyd Art Gallery

  • September 28, 2021

Richard Boyd Art Gallery welcomes Stephen Godsoe to the group of artists represented by the gallery in Southern Maine. Steve is an award-winning educator and multi-talented fine artist with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Arts degree in Mathmatics and an Advanced Study degree in Mathematics and Technology all from the University of Maine.
A twelfth generation Mainer, Stephen comes from a family of artists including his father who was a well-known bird carver. His first Maine ancestor was a surveyor who created maps in the 1700’s with hand drawn symbols and structures. Many of Steve's paintings depict scenes of people and places from his travels and life in countries around the globe. 
About the Artist
Primarily self-taught, Steve’s paintings depict a range of scenes across multiple genres including landscapes and portraits. Working with a variety of mediums his portfolio includes exquisitely detailed realistic paintings of people and places, and expressionistic semi-abstract paintings full of vibrant colors and rich tones.
Throughout his career as an educator Steve always found time to paint. “My early paintings and one-man shows in Washington, DC included many large detailed paintings of indigenous people and architectural structures found in Brazil where my wife and I lived in the early 1970’s. Recently, I’m painting with acrylics and creating more freely done landscapes. Portraits of birds are always in my portfolio, I share my father’s love of Maine’s birds and have painted and studied them throughout my life.”
After forty-nine years of teaching mathematics in Massachusetts, Maine, and Brazil Steve retired to Portland where he continues to paint and draw inspiration from the natural beauty of Maine. Steve’s paintings are held in private collections around the globe.
