Unintended Consequences

August 31, 2018 @ 8:00 AM - September 29, 2018 @ 5:00 PM

A solo exhibition of works by Bill Schmidt

Baltimore-based artist Bill Schmidt’s paintings are the result of his willingness to embrace and encourage the accidental—the surprising moments that occur when one strives to get paint to behave. According to Schmidt, painting can be a battle that pits the will of the painter against the will of the paint. Employing a particularly recalcitrant and unpredictable medium, traditional, water-soluble gouache, his process is one of active damage control, embracing the serendipity of favorable but unanticipated results.
