Tilting at Windmills Gallery, will present a whopper of a two artist show on Saturday, October 8th. Olaf Schneider, an exuberant and prolific large scale oil painter, offers a huge variety of subjects due to his passion for what he sees in the world! He studied at the Ontario College of Art and Sheridan College. In 1986, while painting large scale billboards for Mediacom (currently Outfront Media) he acquired a strong practical foundation that would become integral to his work today.
For Olaf, each piece represents an intense exploration and refinement of his personal pictorial sensitivities, especially as they relate to beauty, form, light, and shade. Composition, color, and craftsmanship are all elements that become the building blocks of his work. Olaf is a prolific painter who is inspired by the power and diversity of the northern landscape, and anything that needs a "second look". An explorer by nature, he travels across North America and Europe to gain inspiration. There is drama, movement and color to all that he creates. Olaf is represented thru out the US and Canada. His vitality, enthusiasm and energy is expressed in each piece and in the quantity that he produces as a very passionate artist.
The opening will officially begin at 4pm and end at 7pm.
Olaf will be demonstrating the way that he creates his original oils from 1pm onwards.
This demo is a special opportune offer to give you a better understanding in what is behind individual favourite works that capture your interest or best of all your heart.
All are welcome.
Tilting at Windmills Gallery is located on
24 Highland Ave., Manchester Center, VT.
