The Bellefonte Art Museum: Sean Bodley

Posted on April 20, 2013 

One of the more than 60 artists listed in the Bellefonte Art Museum’s registry is Sean Bodley. Here is his statement: 

I draw inspiration from everywhere.  I go out into nature and paint en plein air to study color, landscape, and motion.  From the figure I learn about form, anatomy, and the human spirit.  I create compositions of fantastical nature by creating digital collages.  Then I paint them to create fictional realities.  These are inspired by all the things I love to read: history, the news, non-fiction, and the endless feeds of the internet.  I pull inspiration from meditation, video games, and all the wonderful artists I encounter.  I'm constantly seeing to expand what I create; working in oil, acrylic, watercolor, drawing media, and modeling clay are just a beginning for future projects.

Participation in the art community is also important for me.  I regularly teach drawing, participate in art events, and exhibit my work throughout the area.  Find out what I'm up to next at my blog:

The Bellefonte Art Museum celebrates the human spirit through the arts, recognizing the importance of art in our lives. In 2011, the museum experienced a large increase in attendance, private donations and membership and completed refurbishing the historic Linn House. The museum opened three new galleries: the Children’s Creativity Center, the Anna Wagner Keichline Gallery and the new Louise Bloom Sieg Gallery. The museum is opened Friday through Sunday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Phone 814.355.4280.
