Steve Hessler at Chapel Hill Orange County Visitors Bureau

  • Visitor's Center 501 West Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC, 27516 United States (map)

Steve Hessler paints representational landscapes in traditional oils on stretched canvas and gessoed panels. Much of his work is painted plein air, although he also paints from sketches and photographs in his studio. 

Hessler loves the simple vernacular cottages found in the local countryside and in Carrboro and the lines of handmade working boats.  He hopes that his paintings will encourage the preservation of vernacular dwellings and handcrafted vessels.
