Jennifer Norback Fine Art (JNFA) is honored to announce the newest exhibition from fine artist René Romero Schuler when “Chosen” opens on Friday, September 5. This show of new works from the celebrated artist directly addresses themes of choosing a life, choosing a career, and choosing the people we draw strength from.

“This is my most personal series yet. In the past, much of my work reflected on my childhood feelings of isolation and were an outward expression of some of my deepest emotions. But with this series, I have found inspiration from those who are nearest and dearest to me – the chosen ones in my life who I draw my strength from. My hope is that these pieces will touch the hearts of those who view them as much as they have touched mine.”

“Chosen” is part of A Partnership Between Artist & Artisan, a collaboration between Schuler and Terlato Family Vineyards in Napa Valley. The show will also exclusively feature wines handcrafted by Chicago resident John Terlato. Other projects through this collaboration include Schuler hand-painting 21 bottles of Terlato Family Vineyards 2009 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (several of which will be present at the show), as well as the ongoing exhibition, “Cameo,” showing at Chimney Rock Winery through November.

This marks Schuler’s first solo exhibition in Chicago since 2012′s “Shadows,” which opened to critical and commercial acclaim. In the past decade, she has become one of the most distinguished and well-collected contemporary artists to emerge from the Midwest. Her paintings and sculptures of provocative works that convey strength, vulnerability, and a holistic view of beauty are in the permanent collections of museums and many public and private venues internationally. In the past year she has been invited to take part in solo and group exhibitions in Paris, Greece, Miami, and Napa Valley.
