Rodger Bechtold‘s East Gable Sorenson is filled with beautiful light and surface texture, inviting the viewer to share a tranquil moment. As Rodger puts it, “I create landscape paintings that have a feeling of spaciousness beyond the limits of the canvas dimensions, charged with color, expressed with energy and seemingly effortless brushwork. But most of all I’m interested in communicating what it feels like to be there.” A graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago and a student of the great Wolf Kahn, Bechtold’s work offers a reprieve from hectic daily life. Rodger Bechtold will be having a solo showing of his work in an exhibition entitled Middle Ground from May 20th through June 25th. Rodger will be exhibiting his work at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend, WI through May 1st.
