About the Artist/Workshops:
Christie Scheele – a mid-career artist, has been painting devotedly since receiving her BFA, and spent a year on fellowship at the Royal Academy of Fine Art and the University Complutense of Madrid while an undergrad. She began exhibiting and selling her work in New York City in the late 1980s, and started painting her atmospheric, minimalist landscapes just before moving to the Catskills from New York City in 1990. Scheele’s work can be found nationally and internationally in hundreds of private, corporate, and museum collections, and has been featured in numerous articles, profiles, and reviews.
As a teaching artist for the past 20 years in Woodstock, Provincetown, and Nantucket, Scheele is pleased to offer a workshop focusing on imagery of her home turf, Painting the Catskill Mountains, Streams and Reservoirs. Students will be instructed on both narrative and abstract aspects of painting our beautiful mountains, lakes, and streams. Using photographic reference or views from the Emerson grounds, emphasis will be on color and composition, bringing together elements that coalesce to create paintings that have a strong emotive and formal presence. All levels are welcome.
