Wed. March 21st Meeting CANCELLED due to weather
This month we look forward to JEFF SCHALLER demonstrating and talking about his art. Jeff’s approach is expressionistic and contemporary using instantaneous powerful brush strokes that evoke emotional connections to past memory and sensibility in the present; inviting viewers to bring their own thoughts and feelings into his artwork.
Using lost and found images, words and language Jeff paints with a precision and intricacy not normally found in encaustic paintings. “I paint using things that already exist… that reflect on culture, past and present… and explore the subtle nuances of language and life.” Jeff’s results are “pop and edgy, esoteric and direct, unrelated and curiously similar” and provoke an emotional response from the viewer.
