“Close to the Heart…the Beat of the City”

Pam Ingalls & Thomas Schaller

February 1-29, 2012

RS Hanna Gallery is proud to present the sophisticated cityscapes and interiors of national and international award winning artists Thomas Schaller and Pam Ingalls in their breathtaking show of the magic of everyday life.  Both capture the vibrancy and immediacy of the city, encapsulated in the large architectural images or the small details of interiors, but always connect to the timeless.  As Thomas Huxley said,  “to the clear eye the smallest fact is a window through which the infinite may be seen”…and to see through these two talents both the large and the small the commonplace and everyday connect us to the extraordinary. 

Thomas Schaller, author of book, Architecture in Watercolor, is esteemed for his contemporary, light filled city renderings, alive with presence.  Pam Ingalls, acclaimed artist and teacher, is loved for her rich Russian impressionistic style  that renders the smallest of objects with such presence that you feel someone has just entered or left the frame of the canvas.

Surprisingly, both artists convey light thrown on a subject that is simply not physical light, but a recognition of place or feeling, often evoking a playful interaction with the viewer. Each has that remarkable quality of familiarity in the exotic or a sense of a profound nature in the commonplace that sets them head and shoulders above the crowd.

An inner view of the city seen through these two artists eyes…a lover’s view of life rendered on canvas in oil or watercolors, is the basis of their collectors returned love for them.  Connecting one, as real art always does, to what is timeless.
