Since Beverly Wiebusch Shindler’s retirement from the Dysart Public School District, she has devoted her time in the pursuit of landscape, still-life, figurative and abstract painting. “I see things,” Beverly Shindler says, “in terms of colors”. No other statement better explains the harmonic explosions of color rich with emotional intensity found in her paintings.
During the period in which she taught Visual Arts, Beverly’s own paintings have comprised a large subject matter including figurative painting and plein aire landscapes taken from around locations in Arizona as well as her trips to Tahiti, Bermuda, Utah, Mexico and Hawaii. In recent years, Bev’s paintings have included abstracts, still life paintings, desert landscapes as well as Red-Rock Sedona scenes and Aspen and Pine trees inspired from her summer home in Munds Park. Her media types have included oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor.
Beverly Wiebusch Shindler has had three major one-woman exhibitions as well as a group showing in the Phoenix area under her original signed painting name, Beverly Wiebusch. Beverly’s “Cityscape” exhibition was a group showing, at the Phoenix Public Library, her “Cityscape” showing was a one-woman exhibition at the 3300 North Central Bank Tower building then later had a one-woman exhibition of her “Canyon Lake Suite” landscapes also at the 3300 North Central Bank Tower building.
