Hudson Valley Magic
Army- Veteran 1970-1972
About the Art: Living in the art mecca of Beacon New York, Cyrus enjoys supporting the community and family summer events. Hudson Valley Magic was created for a kids’ Elf and Fairy Festival.
About the Artist: Cyrus grew up in a country farmhouse and loved nature. Since the age of 7, he has enjoyed painting and drawing. When he reached high school, his mother was ill and he was sent to boarding school where, in his senior year, he was awarded the Second General Excellence prize in the 1966 New England Preparatory School Art Show. He attended college in Tennessee where he studied art and painted the beautiful landscapes. In 1970 he was drafted into the Army, served in Vietnam, and was awarded a Bronze Star. He currently lives in the NY Hudson Valley where he continues to paint and enjoy the outdoors.
Artist’s Experience: “I tend to keep to myself, but I am thrilled to journey out into the art world and exhibit my artwork and narratives. I truly appreciate the opportunity through Uniting US to share my art, join with fellow veterans, and to connect with communities beyond my town.”
