Professor’s Art Draws Critical Acclaim in Regional Abstraction Exhibit

Congratulations to Pete Schulte, "Dark Day (Revelator pt. 2)," "Abstraction Today," 2016Abstraction Today. His art work was mentioned in Burnaway’s comprehensive review of this important 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

Since 2011, Pete Schulte has worked to design our new undergraduate concentration of drawing at the Department of Art and Art History. This past year our first group of graduates received their Bachelor of Arts in studio art with a concentration in drawing. Drawing is the cornerstone of Schulte’s practice which includes the integration of sculpture, site-conditioned and curatorial activities. Recent solo exhibitions include Pete Schulte Drawings / John Dilg Paintings at Jeff Bailey Gallery, Hudson, N.Y.; Build a Fire and Between Moth And Flame, both at Whitespace in Atlanta; A Letter Edged In Black at The Visual Arts Gallery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham; Pardon Up Here at Luise Ross Gallery, New York City; Goodbye Old Paint at Beta Pictoris Gallery in Birmingham and Reckoning at The Armory Gallery in Blacksburg, Va. Pete Schulte divides his time between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, where he teaches at The University of Alabama and co-directs The Fuel And Lumber Company with Amy Pleasant.
