Portrait of an artist - Sigrun Schroeter

Today's Art Fayre artist is Sigrun Schroeter of Alexandria, Ontario.

Sigrun Schroeter taught drawing at the Visual Arts Center in Westmount and, as co-founder of Ateliers Beaux-Arts, gave summer workshops in pastel and watercolour in the Beauce and Charlevoix regions of Quebec.

She was a member of Powerhouse – a women’s collective art gallery – for several years. Her pastel landscapes have been shown in both solo and group exhibitions in Toronto and Montreal.

In this series of paintings, she has taken familiar Glengarry subjects and tried to distil their painterly qualities, emphasizing composition, colour and form.

To see more of Sigrun's lush, beautiful pastel work, join us at Art Fayre on June 23 & 24th, where you'll have a chance to meet the artists and buy their creations.
