He works with canvases using acrylic paints as well as painting on location to get the best images for his work. Stuart will bring paintings that show the Irish Sea, Virgin trains, Stena Line, Irish ferries and others.
Originally a cotton gin factory built by Robert S. Munger, the CGB was the largest manufacturer of cotton-processing equipment in the United States.

Their style of music brings a great vibe to all things art. CGB will also be participating in the Deep Ellum Art Walk which will be taking place on that Saturday, April 18th.
About the CGB
For over two decades, artists have occupied the 125 year-old Continental Gin Building, making it one of the oldest creative communities in Dallas. At least twice a year, the studios are open to the public, each Fall and Spring. Presently, over two dozen artists occupy the historic building. The Continental Gin Company was built in 1888 by Robert S. Munger, housed in a series of brick warehouses along Elm Street and Trunk Avenue. The company was closed in 1962, as Deep Ellum went through several transitions. In 1982, local real estate developer John Tatum purchased the property and spaces first began being rented to artists, thus establishing the Continental Gin Building as one of the oldest art communities in Dallas. It now houses a mix of accomplished professionals, soon-to-be-discovered and the as-yet undiscovered hopefuls, who are all diligently pursuing their talents whether that be apparel design, graphic design, photography, sculptures, film, painting, glasswork or more.
