Charlotte Dickinson

“Being an advocate of “Plein Air” painting and working from life for my landscapes, florals and still life, I strive to bring the beauty of nature into the home for the viewer to enjoy and reflect upon. My objective as an artist is not merely to record. People like to see a reflection of the artist’s spirit in their work.” – American Impressionist Society, Founder and Past President

Charlotte Dickinson started painting at an early age, inspired by professional artists and sculptors in her family. For 27 years, she owned and operated a gallery in the beautiful Endless Mountain area of Pennsylvania. She has been painting and teaching for more then 35 years. “I have studied with many fine artists over the years,” she says, “but credit William Schultz and Charles Movalli with ‘showing me the light.’ My love for painting is a result of a great appreciation of nature and the beauty around me. I love to work in different mediums. Each subject lends itself to a special technique.”

With a solid background in drawing, composition and color theory, she now devotes her entire professional life to the challenge of the effects of light on form through color. The idea of space and filtered light indeed exemplifies her work today. Her paintings are a life long interest in the work of Cezanne and the Impressionists. She felt there was a need for an organization for the finest Impressionist artists of today.

In 1998, she founded the American Impressionist Society in honor of her mentor William Schultz, Master Artist, and has spent the last 15 years with the support of T.R. Dickinson, Marjorie Bradley, Pauline Ney and many volunteers to bring the finest venues to our members. The effort has brought this idea to fruition The AIS is now one of the finest Art Organizations in the United States.

Currently Charlotte is exhibiting in the U.S. and Canada, being best known for her landscapes, still life, floral and multi-canvas conceptual painting in oil and watercolor.
