RHINEBECK – Rhinebeck Bank is pleased to announce their latest branch art exhibit, a collection of paintings by Charles Steele.

The exhibit will be on display at the Bank’s Rhinebeck branch, located at 6414 Montgomery Street in Rhinebeck, through Saturday, April 10, 2021. Everyone is encouraged to visit the branch during regular business hours to enjoy this amazing art exhibit.

Growing up in the San Francisco bay area, Steele always gravitated towards art as a child, with the recognition early on, that he was creative, and thus encouraged by several of his art teachers. He later attended the California College of Arts and Crafts (CCAC) adjunct high school, “The Renaissance School”, which further encouraged and instilled in him the pursuit of expression via creative endeavors, including drawing, painting, music, sculpture and acting.

Painting became a means to convey aspects of himself and his moods and feelings, and through this medium, it has allowed him to express experiences without the constraints of language. Steele’s art continues to be an exploration and an evolving journey for him, moving always toward a more refined expression in his painting (in this case acrylics) to engage in a wordless dialogue with the viewer, presenting a certain mood or feeling via his art, which is difficult to convey in language.

For more information about his work, please contact Steele at livewellsteele@gmail.com.
