WAAL FEBRUARY 8TH MEETING
SPEAKER: FRED FOCHTMAN
TOPIC: ART RESTORATION
Frederick Fochtman is an art restorer, painting instructor and award winning oil painter from Columbus, Ohio. As a painter, Fred works from direct observation and paints exclusively from life. An integral part of his process is the relationship with the subject as it faces the challenges created by shifting light, weather and time. Fred’s painting subjects include landscape, still life, figurative and interior. The palette and mark making choices are responsive to each individual painting experience. Although Fred often works in the all prima style, many of his paintings require multiple sittings in order to achieve the desired result.
As a painter, Fred travels annually to Vermont and the Atlantic coast in order to create work in the plein air style. Additionally, he paints landscapes locally and throughout Ohio with some attention toward urban subjects. His figure work is created in the studio in collaboration with other painters. Interiors and still lifes are produced in a variety of locales including his restoration studio and the Clintonville bungalow he shares with his wife. Fred feels it is essential to keep an open mind as it relates to painting styles and methods because in his experiences some of his most satisfying work is born out of exploration and risk taking.
As an art restorer for the last ten years, Fred and his work partner have restored paintings for museums, governmental clients, colleges and universities, corporations, galleries and private collections in Ohio and throughout the country. He finds the work very satisfying and feels fortunate that he is able to spend his days in such a rewarding pursuit.
Fred is represented by The Sharon Weiss Gallery located in the Short North District, 20 East Lincoln Street, 43215.
WE WILL BE BACK AT OUR REGULAR MEETING PLACE THE GRISWOLD CENTER AT 7PM – 9PM. SEE YOU THERE😊
