'The Desk'' By Myra Schuetter

Original watercolor painting on paper
Sales price: $6,000.00
Description The Desk an original watercolor on paper By Myra Schuetter Image H-21" X W29" Frame H-29" X W-36" Myra Schuetter, a Jasper, Indiana artist, is well known for her highly involved, super-realistic, colorful, large-scale watercolors. Many of her paintings measure five feet by five feet or only slightly smaller. Myra labors for months, using traditional methods, to create the intricate drawing and painting required to produce these unique watercolors. Myra?s work graces the walls of many private and corporate collections in Indiana and the Washington, D.C. area. In 2000, she was awarded the Martha and Merritt deJong Memorial Artist-in-Residency at the Evansville Museum of Arts, Science and History in Evansville, Indiana, and enjoyed a solo exhibition of 23 watercolors covering about a 10-year span, in the Museum?s Old Gallery. She has exhibited her work at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio as an invited artist and as part of an exhibit of a large private collection. Her painting, Old Glass and Cookbooks, is part of the permanent collection of the Evansville Museum. The painting, Pure Indiana, done as a commission for Indiana?s Lieutenant Governor in 1997, hangs in the State Capitol Building in Indianapolis. In an artist?s statement, Myra agrees with the observation made by John Ward at the University Gallery of the University of Florida in Gainesville, as he described her as a ?meticulous realist?. Her former gallery director, friend and mentor, the late Phil Desind of Capricorn Galleries in Bethesda, Maryland, labeled her obsessive-compulsive. She concurs with both descriptions: ?Yes, I do spend many months and long hours executing the color and detail of my work on a grand scale. But, I figure that is what it takes for me to build what I want to be a feast for your eyes. I want you to get caught up in the richness of detail, the play of light and textures and the intense color, and to never be disappointed in what you have looked more closely to see.?
