Millie Gliniecki Schelling
Pastel Artist

"The time I spend in my studio is a journey of understanding and feeling. When the painting conveys my involvement to the viewer I know those hours were well spent."

Millie uniquely uses the pastel medium to portray everyday objects in a new light. Playing lights against shadows and layering color over color she is able to give a three dimensional look and feel to her paintings. By patiently building up layers of pastels she develops the rich textures and colors. She hopes that each new exploration into color and light will give the viewer a deeper understanding of her subjects.

Her pastels have won her numerous awards at national exhibitions, including Best in Show Still Life, First Place and Purchase Awards and have also been included in Pastel Society of America National Exhibitions at the National Arts Club in New York, as well as regional shows in Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania and at Woodmere Museum in Philadelphia. She has been an instructor in various states at Regional Art Centers and at the Everhart Museum in Scranton, Pa.

Her Work is represented by galleries in Virginia and New Jersey. She is a signature member of Pastel Society of Connecticut and Pastel Society of North Florida. She was the demo artist at Connecticut Pastel Society National Exhibition and a juror for one of their national shows. Recently her work was exhibited in Pennsylvania for a two month solo exhibition
