About Ed Levine

Born in Albany, New York, Ed Levine received his art education at the State University of New York at New Paltz and Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Among the artists with whom he studied were George Wexler, a well known painter in the Hudson River School tradition and Arnold Singer, a master printer and graphic artist. Ed now resides on the south end of Skaneateles Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.

Ed has been showing his work professionally for the past thirty years in some of the finest juried shows in New York State as well as other selected shows along the East Coast. His most recent works can regularly be seen at the Skaneateles Artisans, Gallery Under the Stone, in Skaneateles NY and at the Pat Rini Rohrer Gallery in Canandaigua, NY.  Since retiring after 33 years of teaching, and moving to Skaneateles Lake in June of 2005 Ed's attention has been captured by his new surroundings.

The dominant features of Ed's watercolors are shape, color, and transparent layers combined in an active composition. His paintings radiate with an emotional and physical directness created by their saturated color and bright light.  Ed was recently inducted as a Signature Member of the Central New York Watercolor Society.
