Visit Leather & Art by Memory Trees for our free monthly Arte Vivo event. We invite adults to join us for a glass of wine, and a chat with 92-year-old artist extraordinaire, Cy Seymour.

Cy says, "As a young man I was heavily influenced by abstract expressionism which was thriving in the 40’s and 50’s, and evident in the freeform style of painting I devised. Each of my paintings, over 200 in my collection and counting, is a different color combination and composition. I spend countless hours meticulously planning out each combination (my studio is completely covered in an explosion of color, I no longer need coffee : ), and then when I paint, the application becomes a subconscious journey. This freeform technique also allows me complete freedom of movement over and around my large-scale canvases, which I realize is much healthier than sitting for hours and hours at my age. Overall it is a liberating experience for me."
