Naturalist and landscape artist Marlies Schoenefeld exhibits her artwork at the Sudbury Theatre Centre March 12 to April 14.

For 20 years, Schoenefeld has travelled to Wolf Lake to canoe, to hike and most of all to paint the endangered old growth of the red pine forest.

In that time, her work has changed in intensity from delicate water colours to a strong palette of primary acrylics.

Schoenefeld has abandoned detail to make the viewer aware of the raw shapes of rocks and trees. Their strength and connection to the earth is evident in her work. What will the future be of these ancient red pines?

She has also been recognized for her contribution to the Canadian Breeding Bird Atlas, the Mammal Atlas and the Canadian Lakes Loon Survey. She is president of the Sudbury Naturalists.

Today, Schoenefeld’s paintings hang in private collections in Canada, the United States and Europe.

To view the exhibit, drop in at 170 Shaughnessy St. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, or until 8 p.m. during the run of God of Carnage. Call the STC box office at 705-674-8381, ext. 21 for more information.
