Welcome to the Fine Art of Fred Schollmeyer
Fred Schollmeyer has been painting professionally for thirty years. His artwork is painted in a photorealistic style. He uses acrylic paint and an airbrush to produce his finished artwork. His subject varies greatly from vintage toys to local Missouri landscapes. He feels that the painting process itself is the most important aspect of being an artist. The process is a relaxing and personal experience that is very self-rewarding.
Since childhood Fred has always been interested in the arts. He was an art teacher for thirty years and always found time to paint during that period. Over time his students taught him the importance of art in their lives and his.
His work has been featured in over twenty national art exhibits. Since 2008 nine of his paintings have been featured in the prestigious Watercolor USA Exhibit in Springfield, Missouri.
Fred’s artworks have been included in several national publications including North Light’s “AcrylicWorks” Series. In 2020 his book “Photorealism in the Heartland: The Acrylic Paintings of Fred Schollmeyer” was published. The online literary review site “Book Authority” chose it as one of the best acrylic painting books of the year.
Since the mid 1990s he has displayed his work in numerous art fairs throughout the Midwest. In 2012 he became a member of the “Daily Painters” group showing and selling his artwork online.
Fred is a signature member of the Missouri Watercolor Society and the Watercolor Honor Society. He is also a member of the Best of Missouri Hands, the Columbia Art League, Arts Rolla and the Jefferson City Art Club.
His artwork can be found in collections throughout the USA and Europe.
