October has brought an exciting opportunity, not only personally to Steve but professionally for the gallery. Leaving last week for Helsinki, Finland, Steve visited with two of Finlands premiere artists, Markku Piri and painter Tuomo Saali. Tuomo escorted Steve on a personal tour of his new show titled "Dedolation", which opened to rave reviews and was called " The show not to be missed" by the Helsinki Times.
Steve and Tuomo have engaged in discussions regarding bringing some of the show to The Steve Lyons Gallery in the spring of 2015. Steve, of course, enjoyed discussing technique and composition with this remarkably accomplished painter. Another picture shows Steve and Tuomo exchanging an autographed catalog and his newest book. Also a photo of Markku and Tuomo in front of one of the premiere pieces in the show.
