Title: Manchester Arts Festival Featured Artists Profile Deborah Citron Stevens and Phil Stevens

Location: Downtown Manchester-by-the-Sea

Description: Manchester Arts Festival Featured Artist Profile

Deborah Citron Stevens and Phil Stevens.

A self-declared artist since the age of eight and later formally trained at the Brooklyn Museum with Isaac Soyer, Deborah Citron Stevens works out of her private studio in Essex, dividing her creative energies among the media she loves – printmaking, pastels, painting and sculpture. She finds her artistic inspiration in bold shapes of color like shadows that drape across the road at dusk or striking color combinations such as coral against a blue sky. Her strong drawing skills and color-sense impart visual drama to all her work.

Together with her husband Phil, long-time Production Manager at the Cricket, Deborah crafts funky garden sculptures from old automobile parts culled this year from an English Sunbeam. The pieces of rusted metal and found objects are transformed with animation and humor into unique set pieces for your lawn, garden and home.

Please visit the Essex couple at this year’s festival on Saturday, July 25th (rain date July 26th) in downtown Manchester and pick-up one of their lively creations. Admission: FREE
