The current exhibit of artwork at Saluda Library features paintings and prints by Brad Schwartz. Brad practiced architecture in Maine and North Carolina before becoming a full-time resident of Saluda in 2011. His paintings vary in subject and style from abstraction to primitive to adaptive realism. 


Included in this exhibit are waterfalls, Asian-inspired themes, shaped canvas animal folk art, architectural sketches, and non-representational prints. The paintings are original acrylics on linen and canvas, and the prints are archival quality paper and ink.
