From the smooth sunlit edges, to the depths of receding objects, there is a sense that you can reach out and feel the glass, fabric, folds, and ripples of these hyper-realistic paintings. A celebrated contemporary tenebrist, MaryAnn Schmidt’s attention to shadow invokes an emotional response. Weight, form, and texture give a sculptural appeal to a two dimensional surface.

Schmidt set aside a teaching career, to purse her passion for painting. Educated in Fine Art at the College of St. Rose in Albany, NY, she has created a following since the 1990’s. From her Galway, NY studio, she says “I’m passionate about painting in a larger format, due to the impact ordinary objects make when taken out of context and bathed in intentional light.”

Her paintings are in collections internationally, with notable recognition in Washington D.C. for her unique American Flags. She was the 2011 official artist for Walt Disney International Food and Wine Festival. Twice the cover artist for a NY publication, Schmidt has participated in and been awarded at top juried fine art shows in the country.
