Information provided by the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center
TROY - Don’t miss your opportunity to see Lakes, Flowers, Family: Works by Vincent Saulnier and Scott Thayer at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center. The exhibit featuring paintings by Vincent Saulnier and pottery by Scott Thayer will be on display through February 16th and is free and open to the public. The Hayner Center is located at 301 West Main Street in beautiful Troy, Ohio.
Scott Thayer was Vincent Saulnier’s high school art teacher at Franklin Monroe High School. Through art, the pair formed a bond that continued past Franklin Monroe. After Vincent’s departure from high school, they both continued to hone their skills, Vincent as a painter and Scott as a ceramic artist. Lakes, Flowers, Family is an exhibit that has been in the making for the past 19 years.
Vincent Saulnier is a student of life and art. He employs a bold and powerful style to capture his joyful perspectives. Vincent’s paintings are deeply personal, allowing viewers insight into the moments that spark his imagination and emotions. He is a Yeck Fellowship alumnus and his work has been showcased in venues ranging from local coffee shops, Dayton International Airport, Sinclair University and the Dayton Art Institute.
Scott Thayer’s formative years were spent on a small lake in Southern Michigan. Water skiing, sailing, fishing, and late-night bonfires near the lakeshore were a large part of Scott’s teen years. He also spent a few weeks of the summer at his Grandparent’s cabin in Lake Tahoe, CA. Over the years, Scott’s family has grown, and lives have changed, but the time spent at the lakes have left indelible memories. The imagery of Clarklake and Lake Tahoe continue to influence Scott’s work. The “Lakes” in Lakes, Flowers, Family deals with activities and feelings of the lake translated into and onto the pottery created for this show.
