Selected Work

A prolific artist of boundless curiosity and passion, Theodore reflected in his work the times and tenor of his years as a traveler through life and as an observer and interpreter of the natural world.

Early Work

Discovered by preeminent American Regionalist John Steuart Curry, Czebotar made a name initially for work that reflected the hearth and home imagery appreciated in a country ravished by The Great Depression. His earliest work includes midwestern scenes as well as landscapes from his hobo travels west.

The Olympic Peninsula

After decades of total immersion in the art of making art, Czebotar pushes himself toward abstraction without ever losing his strong respect for nature’s ability to tell her own story, her own way. Alternately sobering, teasing or quietly introspective, the Olympic Peninsula work is Czebotar’s strongest statement of his personal quest for primordial revelation.
