Encaustic painter Tony Scherman is more than a portraitist, he is a historian. Never shying away from controversial subject matter, he has explored slavery, war and the individuals who have shaped those times. In his October exhibition, Scherman focuses on those who have been labeled “Difficult Women”, capturing the powerful spirit behind each. For Scherman, this is tribute to the women he admires, and an exploration of the difference between difficult and difficulty. The women he captures are athletes, politicians, teachers and pioneers. They are symbols of struggle and hope. His paintings are an “acknowledgement of - and respect for - the feeling of difference that resides within women – a feeling that men can only think about...”   Scherman earned his BFA in 1971 at Byam Shaw in London, England and received an M.A. from the Royal College of Art in London, England, in 1974. Since then he has exhibited his works in solo and group exhibitions in North America and Europe. He has also been a visiting critic and lecturer at universities, art colleges and art galleries in North America and Europe.
