Landscape painting has been a hobby of Steiner's for some years. His method has primarily been to paint on site, alla prima, using a palette knife rather than a brush, in order to capture spontaneous impressions. He has had several one-person shows and has been included in many group shows both in the Hudson Valley and New York City.
Steiner lives in Saugerties, N.Y., with his wife, Cornelia Seckel, with whom he helped found "Art Times," a literary journal he edits. In addition to authoring hundreds of essays, reviews, critiques and several books, he has lectured extensively on art-related topics locally and in Europe.
Tickets to see "The Seafarer" are $35 on Thursday and Friday and $37 on Saturday evening and Sunday matinee. Student tickets are available for $20.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.schoolhousetheater.org or by calling the box office at 914-277-8477.
The Schoolhouse is at 3 Owens Road, Croton Falls.
