Milton, Wisconsin, native featured at Beloit Fine Arts Incubator

Staff Report

BELOIT, Wisconsin — Larry Schultz will be the featured artist during January at the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator.

Growing up in the small town of Milton, Wisconsin, Schultz was influenced artistically by his love for nature and the outdoors. After 20 years as a professional artist, Schultz’s works can be found in public and private art galleries and has sold all over the United States, England, Belgium, Germany, Japan and China. He has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors, and much of his art has been featured on magazine covers, posters, specialty items, and fine art prints.

Schultz is accomplished in a variety of media, including watercolor, pencil, pen and ink and sculpture, but oil is what brings him the most enjoyment.

Whether painting landscapes, animals, portraits or figurative works, his paintings express the balance between the intimacy and emotion he feels with nature and the detail and mood of his subject.

I want to paint in such a way that, no matter what the subject, people can’t resist looking at it,” he said. “I like it when I paint something that moves people. When they cry, I know I have touched them.”

An artist reception will be from 5 to 8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 2. Schultz will be available to discuss his work. The event is open to the public.

The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator is at 520 E. Grand Ave. in downtown Beloit, Wisconsin. The exhibit will continue through January, with the gallery open 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Mondays; 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays; and 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturdays. The exhibit is free to the public.
