Karl Schmitz 
Geometry Abandoned

Presented by Barrett Art Center at The Artist’s Palate
307 Main Street, Poughkeepsie, New York 12601

Karl Schmitz is an artist and musician who has resided in Dutchess County for 40 years. His abstract art explores a balance between order and chaos. He is particularly interested in how complexity can grow out of simplicity and how apparent simplicity can reveal unrecognized complexity. Karl has exhibited his paintings in solo shows at Barrett Art Center, Locust Grove Estate, Cunneen-Hackett Art Center, and Poughkeepsie City Hall.


Barrett Art Center’s collaborative exhibition program at The Artist’s Palate promotes, supports, and connects member artists with new audiences at this prominent Hudson Valley fine dining destination. Barrett Art Center members and Barrett exhibition alumni are given preference when curating and planning two-month exhibits at The Artist’s Palate, 307 Main St., Poughkeepsie, New York, 12601.
