Fort Myers, FL – In the month of February, DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts is featuring the art of Colombian artist Dilya Schauer. The exhibition will feature a selection of newer works as well as retrospective pieces from the artist’s collection. The opening reception is scheduled for Friday, February 5, 2021 from 6:00pm to 9:30pm, in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk event. The exhibition will be on display through February 27th, 2021.
Schauer is a veteran painter, who studied art in her native Colombia, under the tutelage of prominent figures like Luis A. Acuna, S.A.Gelvis and Rodriguez Naranjo. She then furthered her studies by attending the Art Students League in New York. She has been a resident of Southwest Florida for more than a decade.
Nature is the center of Schauer’s work. She is also a painter of still life and a gifted portrait artist. “For a still life painter, the initial challenge is to create a picture before the brush is put on the canvas.” – explains the artist. “I arrange the items carefully, so that they become an artistic statement themselves, establishing by association significance and dynamic relationships through specific positioning.” – concludes Schauer, who strongly believes that by juggling the objects into a meaningful still life, she reveals a great deal about herself.
