Pete Schulte and Yevgeniya Baras Showcase Art in Traveling Exhibit

Professor Pete Schulte has work featured in a two-person exhibition with Yevgeniya Baras at the Margie E. West Gallery at the University of Georgia in Athens, now through November 10, 2022. The show previously was on exhibit at the Gallery at Heimbold Visual Arts Center, Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville, New York, in June and will travel to the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art at The University of Alabama, in Tuscaloosa, January 19 – February 24, 2023. Schulte will present a lecture on his work Friday, September 16 at noon at the University of Georgia.

The exhibition, organized by The Gallery at Heimbold Visual Arts Center, Sarah Lawrence College, brings together the work of the two artists to create a broader dialogue on abstraction, line and color, as it coincides in contemporary painting and drawing. An exhibition catalog, with an essay by curator and educator Kate McNamara, accompanies the exhibition. Read more about the University of Georgia exhibition here.
