His thought provoking works involve an intricate process of assembling, painting, deconstructing and reconstructing works to create a layered exploration of the everyday. Citing the words of William Burroughs, “When you cut into the present the future leaks out,” Hawkey says, “it is exposure to the present that I examine, reimagine, rework, realign and reconstruct to create art.”
Artist Stephen Hawkey
Stephen Hawkey graduated with a BFA from Miami University and worked as an Art Director at a boutique advertising agency, directing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies. He went on to study Architecture receiving a Masters in Science from Pratt Institute. His practice led him to work on prominent projects such as the Freedom Tower and large scale designs in Dubai. It was while working as an Interior Architect at Michael Graves, that he came to terms with his own desire to create art. He now works as a full time mixed media artist and is on the board of the Bronxville Design Review Committee. He resides in Bronxville with his wife Colleen O'Callaghan and their three children.

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.
The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.
The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children. All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
