June 2016 Galleries

Author: Judy Harper
Issue: June, 2016, Page 148

Color Burst

Fascinated by the power of color while working in graphic design and printing, Albert Scharf sold his business in 2000 and began investigating his creative side as a full-time artist. “My abstract work allows me to explore the unbridled emotional energy of color,” he explains. “Having the opportunity to seek out my own emotion through creative expression is a gift I do not take for granted.”

Pictured is “Landscape #618,” oil on canvas, 30"H x 40"W. Scharf’s paintings are part of a group show,
June 2-July 2, at Wilde Meyer Gallery in Tucson. The exhibit opens with a reception from  5 to 7 p.m. June 2.
