May Gallery Exhibit--Bing Scherer's Paintings
The guest artist for May is Bing Scherer. When asked about what prompted his interest in painting, he replied. "My interest in art began in grade school as I watched my mom do pencil drawings. I filled my notebook with drawings of favorite cartoon characters. While in seminary in Boston I visited the Museum of Fine Arts. I was introduced to Monet, Van Gogh and Wyeth. Each so different in style but each a new way of looking at the world.
You may notice my paintings are not alike in style or technique because I view each painting as a practice, a learning experience.
This became quite real to me the day I placed two paintings in a tag sale. A woman bought them for less than $1.50. She was so delighted. It made my day until she said, “These are for my son. He paints. He will paint over it and make his own pictures.”
So there it is! Nothing for the ages here. The joy is in the doing. Cover it over and try another!"
We are grateful to Bing for his willingness to share his paintings with us.
The gallery will be open on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and during the week by appointment. To make an appointment, call the church office at 413-737-5311.
These are some images of Bing's paintings that we hope will inspire you to check out the gallery. Be sure to sign the book and let Bing know how much you appreciate him sharing his talents.
