Dan Scultz at The Churchill Gallery

The lyrical paintings of Colorado artist Dan Schultz are characterized by their adept classical rendering, often featuring a figure in a bucolic landscape. Dan’s masterful use of light in his compositions infuse them with a sense of vitality and immediacy.

“My interest in making artwork that portrays people stems from my intrigue with people’s ability to create connections between each other. I have long enjoyed creating images of people whether it is a portrait, a child or a woman in a tranquil landscape. I believe that people can easily relate on a personal level to images of other people. And it seems like everyone can relate to an image of a landscape that reminds them of a favorite place. When I work outdoors — standing at my easel with the landscape before me — I feel a connection to the scene that I’m painting. And each time, I feel like I see more beauty in the world than I did the time before.”

Dan’s art has gained national recognition in a variety of subjects and media. Southwest Art Magazine featured his work in its September, 2004, “21 Under 31” article. He holds memberships in the American Impressionist Society, Oil Painters of America, the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters, and was selected as a Top 100 finalist in the 2001 Arts for the Parks national competition. He has participated in extensive gallery and museum exhibitions and has also received numerous awards for his plein air and studio paintings.

The Churchill Gallery has enjoyed the privilege of showing Dan’s remarkable work since the fall of 2007.
