Between the Mountains and the Mayor: Paintings by Robert Schneider

June 8 @ 4:00 pm July 13 @ 2:00 pm

Opening Reception Saturday, June 8, 4:00 – 6:00p

66 Main Street
Stamford, NY 12167 United States

Influenced by the painters of the Hudson River School, The American Tonalists and the Impressionists, Stamford Village Mayor Robert Schneider has been working on interpreting classical landscapes in his own distinct style for over 40 years. His work has been collected and displayed internationally and now comes home to Main St. 

Mayor Schneider studied at The Art Student’s League in the 1970’s and spent summers in Stowe Vermont, studying with Frank Mason. His landscape work focuses on atmosphere and light instead of dwelling on a specific location.

In a 2007 profile in American Artist magazine Mr. Schneider says “My paintings are based on direct observation and memory… Even when I start a picture outdoors, I usually finish it in the studio so I can give more careful attention to the abstract relationships inherent in the composition as well as the total impact of the image.”

Since 2019, Mr. Schneider has served as the Mayor of the Village of Stamford, where he lives with his wife, the painter Susan Goetz.

Between the Mountains and the Mayor will give visitors the opportunity to engage with the landscapes that surround us, as interpreted by a master painter with a profound relationship with art and our community.
