All Things Ath

The Art, Thoughts, and Meanderings of Steven Jay Athanas

GALLERY

Hey, welcome to the Ath “Gallery” page. This page reflects works I have made over the decades. Some are available for sale, but the best bet is to go to the “Shop” portion of the site. Having said that, I am always open to custom making a piece from this page, if you’d like.

Again: any questions/comments/critiques are welcome. Feel free to contact me.

FYI: A word about the “Fig.” works. If you recall, a lot of your school books (Science, Math, et al) would have photos/diagrams that would state “Fig. 7D: The Elements Chart” for example. They were put there to help one understand the text. Those always stayed with me and seeped their way into my cranium, then my art work, and became a whole facet of my ongoing work.

Enjoy!
