|Geoffrey Stiles is a recognized New England artist who specializes in intaglio etchings and larger-scale pen and ink drawings of architecture. His work, featured in American Artist in 1990, includes prints and pen and inks of historic commercial and residential buildings and other subjects.
In 1999, two of Geoffrey’s etchings, Boston Around 1630 and Dock Square, Boston, Looking Toward Mill Cove and Charlestown around 1740, were accepted in a group show at Haley & Steele in Boston, in association with the Harvard University Map Collection. These same etchings are part of a forthcoming picturebook about the Puritan development of Boston called, Once Upon a Hill There Was a City.
Geoffrey has completed private commissions for over 350 clients throughout New England and the mid-Atlantic region. Commercial clients include Regnery Publishing in Washington, D.C., Major League Baseball (retail poster of Oriole Park Camden Yards, Baltimore), Ingram Micro in California, Portland Regency Hotel in Maine, Maryland Family Magazine, St. Joseph’s College in Maine, and Down East Magazine.
Additionally, Geoffrey’s pen and inks of private residences and historic Boston subjects have been featured by The Old Landmarks Cards, a custom greeting card service, since 1989. Geoffrey won first and second prizes four years in a row (1998-2001) for these greeting cards by Maine Graphic Arts Association for printing excellence among small printers of Maine, in the greeting card category.
Geoffrey’s first award, at age 15, was The Boston Globe Art Award for an architectural pen and ink and an oil of the Maine coast. Following art studies at Buckingham-Browne & Nichols in Cambridge, he obtained a B.F.A. from the University of Pennsylvania. He also studied with Boston painter Paul Ingbretson and etcher/painter Gordon Allen.
McBride Gallery is very pleased to represent this talented New England artist.
