Stanwyck Cromwell



March 26 - April 23, 2013
Opening Reception Mar. 26, 5-7pm


Stanwyck E. Cromwell is a third generation artist born in Georgetown, Guyana, South America, and is committed to the rich, illustrious and colorful heritage of his homeland. Applying his paint in layers allows the viewer to almost taste its “flavors” - lime green, lemon yellow, cinnamon brown, orange, tomato red and banana, being just a few of his favorites. His work is marked by the spirit and resiliency of the Caribbean, the numerous cultures that constitute it, and an effortless fusing of Caribbean and African American experiences. He also credits his talent to his deceased father, who was an accomplished artist, and to his mother who was a skilled seamstress and fashion designer.

Cromwell attended Trinity Elementary School, and the former British Guiana Educational Trust High School, where he earned the College of Preceptors Diploma, with distinction in Art, Latin and French. He then earned his General Certificate of Education, which prompted him to seek higher learning. In July of 1970, he migrated to the United States to pursue his passion for art. Studying at Central Connecticut State University and Charter Oak State College, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, he is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree, majoring in painting.
