Executive Director Position Announcement

 

Director Full Job Description

 

          


Herb Kroeger

Paintings


Art Show July 13 – August 22


 

 
       
                                
The Sherman Library is pleased to announce a show of Paintings by Herbert Kroeger. His landscapes, seascapes and portraits are delightful.

 

Herb enjoys exploring a wide variety of subject matter and different painting styles and techniques from semi-abstract to representational art. In addition to the landscapes, seascapes and portraits represented in this show, his other paintings and figurative works such as Herb's figurative White Light Series can be viewed on his website: www: herbkroegerart.com or by visiting his studio in Sherman, CT. His use of dramatic lighting, color glazes and built up layers of paint, create the illusion or suggestion of a textured three-dimensional surface.


Mr. Kroeger began formal training in figure drawing and painting at age twelve. He then studied painting and graphic design at Syracuse University School of Fine Art and Pratt Institute School of Art. In 1964 at the age of 25, he had a solo show of his paintings at the Galerie De Nus in New York City. After an unfortunate fire destroyed most of his paintings, Herb worked as a graphic designer for international clients for 40 years. Since retiring in 2003 he has returned to his first love, painting. He has exhibited locally at the Kent and Washington Art Associations and at the Eric Sloane Museum. This is his first exhibit in Sherman, CT.
