Christie Scheele has been painting devotedly since receiving her BFA from the College of Art and Design at Alfred University, which included a year on fellowship at the Royal Academy in Madrid. She started painting her atmospheric, minimalist landscapes just before moving to the Catskills from New York City. These meditative pieces cross the boundaries between realism and the contemporary art world, reaching the viewer’s heart without sentimentality or melodrama. She has led color theory workshops at the Woodstock school of Art, at the Provincetown Artists Association and Museum, and for the Artists Association of Nantucket.


Scheele’s work is included in private and public collections nationwide and internationally including the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art (New Paltz, NY), the Queens Museum of Art, the Provincetown Artists Association and Museum, the Tyler Museum of Art (Tyler, TX), St. Joseph’s University (Philadelphia, PA), American Airlines, Waterford Crystal, Bessemer Trust Company, the Emerson Resort and Spa, and the Mayo Clinic. Her work was featured in the films “Broken Flowers” and “Perfect Strangers”, and has been profiled and reviewed extensively in such publications as Architectural Digest, Hook Magazine, the Woodstock Times, Art New England and Cape Cod Art. She has had dozens of solo shows over the years, including in 2023, when 1053 Gallery presented Alas/Watershed, the artist's third show to feature a climate change theme.


“The single most important aspect to what I do as a landscape painter is to reduce a scene to its essentials. This gives the viewer what is important, without the distraction, or visual clutter, of too much detail. Both by creating this overview and by using soft, scumbled edges, these paintings can quiet a viewer's mind and evoke a more direct response.”
