'NEW VIEWS' Ann Tower Gallery, Lexington, KY.
recent landscapes, drawings and sculpture. On view from September 16 - November 6, 2011. 'The Ann Tower Gallery is pleased to present 'New Views: Recent Drawings and Paintings by George Schmidt" Which will open Friday, September 16th. For this exhibition George Schmidt has assembled a group of work that reflects his continued interest in landscape, and in particular, a pared down simplicity, where forms and images are balanced between the literal and the abstract. His drawings and paintings blend and merge landscape and architecture into pattern and geometric abstraction, while his palette, and casually virtuosic paint handling create images that are invitingly effortless, layered, and warmly colorful.'
