Hicks Art Center Gallery Presents ‘Charlotte Schatz: Indomitable’
Exhibition through December 9 celebrates the Professor Emerita and artist's 90th birthday through an expansive array of decades of her creativity
The Hicks Art Center Gallery proudly presents “Charlotte Schatz: Indomitable” from October 30 to December 9 at Bucks County Community College’s Newtown Campus.
The expansive exhibition of works by the celebrated regional artist and Bucks County Community College Professor Emerita honors her 90th birthday and 75 years of creativity.
Schatz received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art in 1969 and began her professional career as an artist, garnering awards and exhibiting widely. Invited to teach sculpture at Bucks County Community College in 1973, she remained on faculty until retiring in 2004.
She was awarded a Leeway Foundation Grant in 2000 and was the recipient of a Pollack-Krasner grant in 2004. Her work is in the permanent collection of the State Museum of Pennsylvania, as well as the Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, Pa.
Social, environmental, and geo-political issues have been the wellspring of Schatz’s artistic inspiration. In her 90th year, empowered with hope and resiliency, she continues to provoke the consciousness of her audience. Her commitment, determination, passion and perseverance are, indeed, Indomitable.
