April Laragy Stein
One of upstate New York's favorite artists, April Laragy Stein presents her latest artistic achievements that awaken the imagination. Influenced by Chagall, Matisse and early Kandinsky, April’s watercolor, gouache and acrylic paintings are compelling and rich with fantasy. The broad theme of her work embodies the earthly dimension of time and space, and makes a connection to a second dimension through the use of the canvas. The paintings depicted on this website range in actual size from approximately 16” x 20” to 40” x 60”.

April's artistic talents are not limited to the visual arts. Her electric musical talents can be enjoyed at upstate NY venues. Her band, the Atomic Swindlers give the audience a surreal way to experience their music by collaborating with regional artists for a visual and musical performance.
