WOLFEBORO — The Art Place on Main Street Wolfeboro will celebrate the beginning of their featured and guest artist's series with local artist Valerie Schurer Christle which will run from Friday, April 24 through Wednesday, May 13.
Christle, originally from England, immigrated to the states and settled in the Lakes Region in 1980. Her varied and multimedia work embodies her intensely focused interest in color, patterns, textures, layers, transparencies and reflections. She is a self-taught artist with a distinctive perspective. The viewer is sure to discover abstractions within her realism or realism within her abstractions. This layered quality is her intent, she enjoys hearing from her audience what they themselves discover in the work, as well as sharing her own experience.
In Valerie's own words, "It was fascinating to be on hand at the gallery to discuss peoples reactions to different pieces, to see what attracted them to certain works. People were surprised at the diversity of media used and the variety of subject matter."
Most recently her images have appeared on the cover of the GWAC current issue and the program cover for the Friends of Music 2015. For more information, call The Art Place at 603-569-6159.
