John Servetas studied painting at the Art Students League where he worked with Bryon Browne. He also studied at City College, New York. Noted artists George Constant (NY, 1892-1978) and Theo Hios (Greek-American, 1910-1998) also studied with Servetas, but it is unclear at what time they studied together.
Servetas was involved in many shows including his one man shows at Phoenix Gallery in 1958, Sawdust Gallery in 1965, and Hudson Guild in 1987. The following is a list of many of Servetas’ group shows that he was involved in throughout his lifetime: Phoenix Gallery, New York City (which celebrated its 50th year of operation in 2008), North Shore Hebrew Society, Elizabeth Street Gallery, Griffiths Art Center, St. Lawrence University, Riverside Museum, Loeb Student Center, Union Carbide, Hudson Guild, Fordham University, Krasdale Foods, and Art Students League of New York.
There were several memberships in Servetas’ career, including Federation of Modern Painters and Sculptors, Audubon Artists, and Arts Interaction. Most recently, works by John Servetas were included in the Westbeth Gallery (55 Bethune Street, NY, NY) Federation of Modern Painters and Sculptors, May 26-June 17, 2012. The exhibition also featured works by March Avery and Philip Lawrence Sherrod, N.A.
