Stremmel Gallery

Phyllis Shafer: Nature Transcendent

With a unique style of Plein Air Landscapes, Phyllis Shafer creates images of beauty with a slight feeling of dreamy abstraction. This is a great chance to see many of Shafer’s works in one place, don’t miss it.

“Nature, in its various manifestations, has always provided the raw material for my artistic investigations. Painting directly from nature provides me with the most detail from which to observe the idiosyncrasies of the natural world. Even more crucial is the fact that being in nature is how I hear and see what the painting needs to be. The stylizing, exaggerating, and surreal juxtapositions are my own intuitive response to that experience.” –Phyllis Shafer
