Landscape Oil Paintings by Marvin Saltzman

Opening reception with the artist to follow Shabbat Services

Marvin Saltzman was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1931. He attended the University of Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1954 to 1956, and received a B.F.A. and M.F.A. from the University of Southern California in 1959. He taught at multiple universities, including Eastern Oregon State College, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the University of Southern California, and was a member of the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1967 to 1996, where he mentored hundreds of students, many of whom have gone on to have successful artistic careers.

Saltzman has a meticulous painting process: His vibrant landscapes are composed of a multitude of colored glyphs that are first drawn in nature and then painted from memory. Working in a series, he hangs up multiple palettes around his studio, rotating them until the paintings tell him he is finished.
