Assistant Professor’s Painting Lauded in Abstraction Exhibition

Two works by Assistant Professor Pete Schulte’s were included in Atlanta’s Museum of Pete Schulte, "Dark Day (Revelator pt. 2)," "Abstraction Today," 2016Contemporary Art of Georgia critically acclaimed exhibition, Abstraction Today. One was singled out in Burnaway’s comprehensive review of the show:

“At its best, Abstraction Today shows us what the future of abstraction might look like as well…The stunning Dark Day, (Revelator pt. 2), Pete Schulte’s best-of-show large-scale wall drawing in white, grays and black, has it all. At once equal parts impenetrable monolith of solid form and shape-shifting portal into an unknowable future, it is 100-percent seductive.” – Donna Mintz

Schulte also has two recent solo exhibitions. No More Snake Oil Blues opened on September 17, at Jeff Bailey Gallery in Hudson, New York, and A Letter Edged In Black  5: The Black Object opened at the Biggin Gallery at Auburn University on October 5. Both exhibitions feature large scale wall drawings, works on paper, and aluminum sculptures. Schulte has been assistant professor of drawing at UA since 2011.
