Please join us for an artist reception during First Friday, June 2nd from 6 – 8 pm to meet Eric Schwerdtfeger, our June featured artist.
Eric’s Artist Statement:
As an Artist and landscape painter, I filter my visual interpretations of nature into a poetic, moody and atmospheric scene. My love of nature, feelings of the seasons and time of day inspire me in my art.
19th Century Art and American Tonalism is what influences my style the most. I love the tonal abstractions and mysterious shadows. My work is sometimes detailed in brushstrokes or loosely abstract depending on the mood or the “feel” I’m trying to create.
My objective is to create a painting that brings the viewer into a quiet contemplation, a poectic journey through the piece. Most of my paintings are simple in subject matter, yet powerful in feeling.
