Dietlind Vander Schaaf

Artists’ Favorites showcases work by our talented gallery artists that they’ve selected specifically for this exhibition. Each artist chose two of her/his favorite artworks for the show to share with you.

In addition, we’re thrilled to introduce you to guest artist, Dietlind Vander Schaaf, an internationally known encaustic artist, based in Portland, Maine. Dietlind also chose her favorite paintings from a new series of works that represent the breadth and depth of her singular aesthetic.

We invite you to join us in the gallery and online to view Artists’ Favorites. Please note that Dietlind’s work is only viewable online. We will be exhibiting more of Dietlind's encaustic paintings in 2021 as we continue our exploration of encaustic as an exciting and intriguing medium.

“Patrick and I know that certain works by our artists really resonate with you,” says Anita Sue Kolman, co-owner of Kolman & Pryor Gallery. “This exhibition gives you an opportunity to learn more about the work our artists love most and why. It also gives you a chance to know our artists, the artists you admire and collect, on a deeper level.

“We’re excited to welcome you back into the gallery and online to discover these works by our artists, selected by our artists,” says gallery co-owner, Patrick Pryor. “We’d love to hear your thoughts on the work, including on our expanding encaustic program, and how the exhibition is inspiring your art viewing and collecting.”

What does painting in Minnesota look like now?
