Anthony (Tony) Schillaci shares his work in the Stephenson House this September with his exhibit titled, “Post Impressionism Realist.” It will include many of his figure and portrait works.
Tony became interested in drawing as a seventh grader with a sister who never stopped encouraging him. In the early 70s as a War Veteran he enrolled in the American Academy of Art undergraduate courses and was fortunate enough to have inspiring teachers like Bill Parks, Irving Shapiro, and Douglas Graves. In the early 80s, Tony returned to art once more by taking evening life classes with instructor Max Randt. Every Sunday, Tony and Max enjoyed traveling around Northern Illinois painting en plein air.
With a strong interest in portrait and figure painting, Tony enrolled in the Arts Students League under the guidance of Max Ginsberg who Tony describes as a “master” and was grateful to have him as a teacher.
Today, Tony’s artistic goal is painting and drawing every day, trying to improve, in order to paint “that one masterpiece.”
Come experience Tony's showcase exhibit in the Stephenson on Nickel Plate Arts campus this September!
Nickel Plate Arts is open Wednesday-Friday, 12pm-5pm, and Saturdays 10am-5pm.
