The Stillwater Public Library is pleased to present “Jamais vu: To See Anew”, an exhibit by Stillwater artist Charlotte Schuld. Schuld’s work is a constant notice and appreciation of landlines, textures, and the natural patterns and colors of earth, water and sky. The exhibit will be on display in the gallery during July and August. An artist reception is scheduled for Thursday, July 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Schuld’s early works were predominantly watercolors which evolved into a mixed media approach that now includes color pencils, gouache, inks and pastels with many different techniques — whatever is needed to capture each different scene.
More recently Schuld has spent the majority of time painting with acrylic on canvas. The image is started with pastel to lay down the design foundation and completed with many layers of washes and glazes. Her work has been described as “walking a fine line between Realism and Impressionism” and she finds that she likes and agrees with that. The fun is deciding what to leave as just an impression or hint and where to tighten into realistic detailed work.
The Stillwater Public Library Gallery is free and open to the public during regular library hours.
