Artist of the Month
Craig O’Neill featured artist
The Stoneham Public Library is pleased to announce its April Art Show with artist Craig O’Neill. Mr. O’Neill works primarily in oils, in pastels, charcoal, pen and ink, woodcuts, and linoleum cuts. He enjoys painting portraits, figures, landscapes, interiors, and combinations of them. Craig
paints quickly. Once the canvas is covered, whether it be a
portrait, figure, or landscape, that’s when the painting begins. He strives to convey a sense of soul of his subjects, the spirit of place for his landscapes, and to make viewing the painting an interactive experience. His recent work focuses on capturing a mood or telling a story in the painting. He has also been painting multiple versions of the same subject or view over time.
Craig O’Neill has had numerous one-man shows and participated in group
shows, including the shows of Stoneham’s Porter Arts Group. He also has
displayed and discussed his work on the Porter Arts Group TV Show on
Stoneham local access cable. He was featured artist of the month in
February, 2013 on the TV show.

Londonderry Arts Association, Londonderry, NH; and an Associate Member,
North Shore Arts Association.
He has studied with David Andrus and Pamela Sienna at Cambridge Center for Adult Ed.; with Cyrus Whittier at Brookline Center for Adult Ed.; Judy
