The Hicks Art Center Gallery is presenting Charlotte Schatz: Indomitable, from Oct. 30-Dec. 9 at Bucks County Community College’s Newtown Campus.
The expansive exhibition of works by the celebrated regional artist and Bucks County Community College Professor Emerita honors her 90th birthday and years of creativity. Schatz will deliver a free artist’s talk on Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in room 257 of Grupp Hall. A free gallery reception takes place on Sunday, Nov. 3, from 1 to 3 p.m.
Schatz received her bachelor of fine arts from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art in 1969 and began her professional career as an artist, garnering awards and exhibiting widely. Invited to teach sculpture at Bucks County Community College in 1973, she remained on faculty until retiring in 2004.
She was awarded a Leeway Foundation Grant in 2000 and was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner grant in 2004. Her work is in the permanent collection of the State Museum of Pennsylvania, as well as Michener Art Museum in Doylestown.
Social, environmental and geo-political issues have been the wellspring of Schatz’s artistic inspiration. In her 90th year, empowered with hope and resiliency, she continues to provoke the consciousness of her audience. Her commitment, determination and perseverance are, indeed, Indomitable.
The Hicks Art Center Gallery is located on the Bucks campus at 275 Swamp Road, Newtown. Parking and admission are free. For more information, including a list of gallery hours, visit bucks.edu or call 215-968-8425.
