THEODORUS STAMOS, 1922-1997
AMERICAN, Born: New York, NY

EDUCATION: Studied sculpture under Simon Kennedy and Joseph Kouzal at the American Artist School, NY 1936.

TEACHING: Lecturer, School of Fine Arts, Columbia University, NY, 1966; Professor, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, 1967-68.

AWARDS: National Institute of Arts and Letters Award, NY, 1956; Brandeis University Creative Arts Award, 1959; Mainichi Newspaper Prize, Tokyo International, 1967; National Arts Foundation Award, Washington, D.C. 1967.

EXHIBITIONS: Include the Whitney Annual, NY, 1945; Biennale, Tokyo, 1961; Museum Of Modern Art, NY; Whitney Museum, NY; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Hirschhorn Museum, Washington, D.C., and the Tel Aviv Museum, Israel.

Along with such painters as Baziotes and Rothko, Stamos (as he prefers to be called) painted biomorphic subject matter in thin washes of pigment. Stamos continues to probe the limits of abstraction and combines this exploration with a traditional emphasis to painterly concerns. His strengths as an artist lie in his complex and powerful handling of color.

The Plattsburgh State Art Museum is comprised of over 4,500 works of art, representing numerous regions of the world, from the ancient to the contemporary. Works are displayed within our three main galleries, an outdoor sculpture park and exhibition areas throughout the campus. These facilities produce over twenty-five exhibitions a year of both a national and regional nature. Expanding upon the pluralistic ideal of Andre Malreaux's concept of a "Museum Without Walls," the Plattsburgh State Art Museum has become an open visual art resource for the College and the Champlain Valley/Adirondack Region.
