Peter Poskas
- Additional Information -

From summers on Monhegan Island and changing seasons near his home in Litchfield County, CT, Peter Poskas senses the indigenous life of beached fishing skiffs or a freshly plowed field.

Poskas makes full use of the effects of light at different times of day in his typically small-scale paintings. In 1992, he visited Monhegan for the first time and since then, the island's light has become a major source of creative impetus.
