Current Art Exhibit

Summer Art Exhibit featuring Grace Schlesier

Almost all of Grace Schlesier's paintings begin on location. Experiencing the day, hearing the surf, feeling the wind and the distant call of a gull saturates her senses. Grace feels these experiences help to create a mood in her work. Then, she says, “if I'm happy with my field studies and feel they are worthy of a larger studio piece, I'll take it to the next level.” In the studio, Grace has the time to refine and redesign her ideas on a larger canvas. She sometimes works on one piece for months, until she's satisfied she's expressed the feeling she felt when on location. Only then will she sign her name.

Schlesier, award winning Plein Air oil painter, specializing in Coastal Scenes, was named one of the 10 Top Women Artists in the Nov/Dec 2012 issue of Art of the West. Grace received the prestigious Paint Americas Top 100 Award with her work shown at the Museum at Torrey Pines, CA. Her paintings are featured in many coffee table books including How Did You Paint That? published by International Artist Magazine.
