The Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs have two exhibits in February.
Ruthe Sholler’s passion for art and creativity propelled her into a lifetime of learning and teaching various media. She began her studies in Art/Art History at the tender age of 12. Sholler was enrolled in the Museum of Fine Arts—After School and —Saturday Art programs throughout her middle and high school years. She also studied privately with many notable artist/educators, prior to and after graduating from college. The need to constantly create would serve to define who Ruthe is, both as an artist and teacher.
Ruthe Scholler adheres to the idea that, “in order to learn, you teach!” She began fulfilling her love for the process involved with creating in the visual arts, when first introduced to mono type print making; a medium in which she focused on figurative, landscape and still life in semi-abstraction. Following a number of years involved with print making, her attention turned to oils, water colors, colored pencil painting and lastly, soft pastels. All of which she has taught during her 25 years as a public school art educator and privately in various Art Centers. Sholler achieved her Master in Education from Lesley University, Cambridge, MA. She continues to teach, paint and exhibit in her primary medium of soft pastels. Scholler’s pastel paintings have been accepted into many juried international, national and local exhibitions, winning numerous awards and acclaim.
This exhibit is on display through Feb. 28 at the Performing Arts Center, 10150 Bonita Beach Road.
The annual members Only exhibit opens Feb. 5 and runs through Feb. 25 at the Visual Arts Center at 26100 Old 41 Road in Bonita
