Holiday Studio Show set Dec. 1-2
Charles Muench will be opening his Ruhenstroth neighborhood studio in Gardnerville to the public for his annual Holiday Studio Show on Dec. 1-2 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
He will be displaying an assortment of new paintings and limited edition Giclee prints on canvas. All work is available at the show and online through his website.
“These are not dashed off studies. They are finished paintings on a small scale, created over several sessions with multiple layers of paint for texture and depth. I enjoy the challenge of creating significant words on a small scale. I strive for the same brush quality of my large work- with all the impasto, glazes and crumbly bits,” Muench said. “Many of the paintings feature views familiar to those living in the region. From the fall aspens of Hope Valley to the Old Washoe Club in Virginia City, many of these works will feel familiar. One such painting is an interior of Nevada’s oldest thirst parlor. This painting is an example of the depth and detail that can be achieved on a small scale while still allowing for texture and brush quality. It is truly a challenge and a joy to create these big little paintings.”
The studio is located at 1876 Arabian Lane, Gardnerville. For more information, 775-265-4454 or http://www.charlesmuench.com.
