A virtual event is being held online this week, 2nd to 3rd October, to celebrate the life and career of artist and writer Richard Schmid, who sadly passed away in April this year. To join the event, sign up to the mailing list through this link – RichardSchmidArt.com. Or contact info@RichardSchmidArt.com
A dear friend, Schmid was a great supporter of the studios and we look forward to this opportunity to celebrate his career. Many of you will have read his books on Landscapes, Still life, or ‘Alla Prima’.
Taken from his website:
“Somewhere within all of us is a wordless centre, a part of us that hopes to be immortal in some way, a part that has remained unchanged since we were children, the source of our strength and compassion. This faint confluence of the tangible and the spiritual is where Art comes from. It has no known limits, and once you tap into it you will realise what truly rich choices you have. May each painting you do from that sacred place include an expressions of gratitude for the extraordinary privilege of being an artist”
– Richard Schmid 1998 Excerpt from Alla Prima
