Anthony Breuer: An Artist Among Us

Dr. Anthony Breuer’s biography describes him as an “artist who for relief engages in clinical neurology, vegetable gardening and fly fishing.”

Sounds like a pretty interesting guy, huh?

Over at Laupus Library, we sure do think so and we’re exciting to host an exhibition of Tony’s acrylic and oil paintings titled, “Artscience in Spacetime: Steam.” The works will be displayed in Library’s fourth floor gallery from January 29th through March 12. This exhibit is part of the ongoing Art as Avocation series which showcases the artistic talent of our colleagues in the Health Sciences Division.

You may know Tony as an affiliate professor of Neurology at the Brody School of Medicine, but his art has attracted notice across the Southeast. And it’s easy to see why. A contributor to Nashville Arts Magazine described the appeal of his work this way: “I was drawn to it – it wasn’t something I thought about – it just happened!” Tony’s works straddle the definition of abstraction, but his focus on the forces that tie energy, matter, space and time grounds his work in a sort of scientific orderliness.

At Laupus, we’re always thrilled to display the myriad talents of our colleagues from ECU’s Health Sciences Division. So, please do come by and check out this amazing collection of inspiring work.
