Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, “Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Rural Pennsylvania,” will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University’s Life Sciences Building.
On Thursday, Nov. 8, Schellenberg will visit campus for a gallery talk and opening reception, which will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Atrium Gallery on the second floor of the University’s Life Sciences Building. There is no cost to attend the opening and guests do not need to register in advance. 

“The University’s Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University’s campus by providing a variety of art exhibits,” said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. “We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg’s show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus.”

Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program. 

Schellenberg’s art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania’s Art of the State exhibit.

Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art,  Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.
