New local rising artist, Howard Schoor hit a home run at his introductory art show on June 22 at the Asbury Hotel. With 150-plus attendees, the event space was filled with friends, local artists, politicians, business owners and branded collectors who came to be part of his Trianglist art movement.
The night included a short presentation by Schoor about his journey from being a significant collector of art to a creator of art. He talked about viewing contemporary art in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe and saying, “I can do that.”
In 2016 at age 77, he began to paint and proved that he indeed “can do that.” His medium is acrylic paint, spackle paste and markers. To make his art recognizable, Schoor includes a triangle or triangles in all his paintings, stemming from his early years as a civil engineer when a triangle was an essential tool of the trade.
Schoor will be “Artist in Residence” at the Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park through Sept. 3. An opening reception will be held on Aug. 4 from 6 to 9 pm, and an Artist Talk on Aug. 12 from 11 am to 1 pm.
