August 2011 - Showcasing Schubert August 01 2011
Each month Arts on Douglas, the downtown New Smyrna Beach art gallery, features a new exhibition. During the month of August, the gallery will feature Jeanne Schubert's final solo exhibition, titled Showcasing Schubert.
Showcasing Schubert includes works spanning several decades from Jeanne Schubert's private collection, including pieces that have never been exhibited. Schubert recently retired, opting instead to enjoy a quiet life away from the public eye. This event marks the last commercial gallery exhibition in which Schubert will be providing work from her collection. This exhibition will feature work from different phases and series in the artist's career. From still lifes and landscapes to portraits and near-abstractions, Schubert's work reflects her passion for impressionism, color, form, light, and texture. Wanting to share this passion with the public, Schubert has generously offered to price her work for the budget-minded collector in mind.
In the late 50's Jeanne Schubert moved to Orlando, Florida. She quickly became enthralled with the undeveloped landscape of that area. Schubert was introduced to New Smyrna Beach during that time through her experiences with Atlantic Center for the Arts. She is a four-time associate at the artist in residency facility with noted artists Lowell Nesbitt, Philip Pearlstein, Lynda Benglis and Kay Walkingstick.
Showcasing Schubert will open to the public with an opening reception on Saturday, August 6 from 4 - 7pm. The exhibition will run through August 27. This event is held in conjunction with the New Smyrna Beach Downtown Arts District Gallery Walk that includes galleries located on Douglas and Canal Streets.
