Michael Schweigart’s inspiration comes from taking the road less traveled whenever possible with his focus on what characterizes a region. “Like many I have a deep appreciation for nature. It offers me a constant source of ideas to explore.” Scenes of coastal Maine and parts of eastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey make up the bulk of his work. Schweigart combines technique and medium to create paintings that depict bucolic landscapes and seascapes. His works display texture and atmosphere, with a presence of man and a sense of place. Michael Schweigart has been exhibiting his landscapes for more than 3 decades in galleries from New York City to South Jersey, Philadelphia and even the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C. His paintings have won awards and are included in many prestigious public and private collections.
