Art & Treasures 2015 sneak peek at Len Roemer Paintings

Submitted by Lois Sumberg, Gallery Council member

Wow! I can’t believe our luck. The 2015 Art & Treasures Sale just received 16 paintings by local artist Len Roemer. Most are painted in oil, a few in watercolor. Roemer studied with Fairport native Carl Peters (1897-1980), a nationally renowned painter involved in the Public Works Arts (WPA) projects during the 1930’s. MAG will present Art for the People: Carl Peters and the Rochester WPA Murals in October 2015.

Roemer paints in the tradition of Peters, creating landscapes that blend together Realism and Impressionism. He paints boldly in a loose flowing style. His paintings have been described as “Carl Peters on LSD,” because they use much more color and paint than Peters.

If you like what you see, come to the Art & Treasures Sale and one of these paintings can be yours.
