Artist Stephanie Schlatter Exhibits at Kubiac Art Gallery

Press Release

(GRAND RAPIDS, MICH)—July 10, 2010—Artist Stephanie Schlatter held an exhibit at the Kubiac Art Gallery located at 48 Center Street in Douglas, Michigan, on Saturday, August 28, 2010, from 6-9 p.m. The exhibit, "Uncorked" The Paintings, was a tempting prelude to her ArtPrize installation.

The large collection of vineyard-themed paintings that were included in the exhibit were reminiscent of Stephanie's Art Prize entry, Uncorked, a fantasy space of art, design, and wine, which were on display outside of The B.O.B. in downtown Grand Rapids, for ArtPrize in 2010.

Ten years ago, while studying photography, Stephanie developed an interest in painting. "It was just a calling that I was instantly passionate about. It came from somewhere outside of myself," said Stephanie. She has always been interested in vineyard-themed paintings, like those in the Uncorked series, and it is a theme that she revisits often in her work. "I love wine country," said Stephanie.

In addition to enjoying a wine and cheese reception at the event, visitors were able to enter a drawing to win one of Stephanie's 12 x 12 paintings. Patrons were also able to view other artists' work on display at the gallery; however, Stephanie's art (www.stephanieschlatterart.com) was the primary focus of the event.

Stephanie Schlatter draws inspiration from the world around her for her art. While she calls Grand Rapids, Michigan home, she's often off on new adventures across the globe. She has studied art both locally and abroad, including time in Mexico where she decided to shift her focus from photography to painting. Stephanie's travels led her to found Art Aid for Tesfa in 2006, the creative division of the Tesfa Foundation, through which she brings art classes to the children of Ethiopia while supporting their education. Stephanie is a Board Member of the Tesfa Foundation.
