Ron Scharfe: “Make Room for Color”

February 2019 | Gallery 81435

Gallery 81435 in Telluride, Colorado presents "Make Room for Color", an exhibit by Ron Scharfe during the month of February 2019. The Art Walk opening reception will take place Thursday, February 7, from 5 – 8 pm.

Ron Scharfe’s abstract modern art paintings are the result of color and form interacting, and the beauty and movement emerging from their interplay. Scharfe is inspired by exploration. “When you explore, the unexpected happens: color upon color; form upon form…movement creating shapes, which are suddenly rearranged into some other order. Mimicking impermanence, revealing and yet disguising what lies beneath.”

Ron Scharfe began painting in his 20s. He holds a B.A. in Fine Arts from Chicago Art Institute, has an associate degree in Interior Design, and has trained in color/design with Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Insititute and director of the Eiseman Color Institute. His background in modern art and his years of work as a design professional have given him a unique aesthetic sensibility that he is driven to express in his fine artworks.

The show runs thru February 2019 at Gallery 81435, located at 230 S Fir Street in Telluride, Colorado. Open daily from 12-6 pm, or by appointment.
