"What We See" Click here for artist information

October 5th 2018

Crossroads is very pleased to introduce Robert Schlegel for an exhibit of his acrylic & oil, titled "What We See," paintings and assemblage artwork. Schlegel lives and creates in Banks, Oregon and he was a 2016 featured Oregon Public Broadcasting Art Beat artist; Robert will be our featured artist during the month of October. Schlegel's vibrant paintings explore manmade structures juxtaposed into the landscape and other subjects such as birds, horses, fisherman, and other figurative work painted onto gesso prepared paper, panel and canvas. Schlegel begins his process en plein air (outdoors) or in the studio, using preliminary sketches in charcoal, pencil and oil pastel and taking reference photographs as necessary. He strives to create work that possesses tension between the representational and the abstract. Recently, Schlegel has begun to explore three-dimensional work. Using paper, wire, string and fabric, he creates architectural structures and organic bird forms. "Schlegel's assemblage's have the intriguing appearance and feel of having jumped-off one of his paintings into 3D form, states Kristin Hauter, Crossroads Art Director. "We are excited and honored to present his colorful, figurative and structural artwork." Robert began exhibiting pen and ink drawings in 1973 and has had work included in the Artists of Oregon Show at the Portland Art Museum, the Governor's Office in Salem Oregon, numerous solo and group exhibits in California, Montana, Oregon and Washington.
