Pete Schulte

In residence May 10 - May 13, 2018

Pete Schulte, along with Amy Pleasant, is the founder of The Fuel & Lumber Company. They have partnered with AIR Serenbe on The Fuel & Lumber Project Residency where they—and a set of artists they select—will have the time and space needed to develop an exciting new exhibition to be installed in Whitespace Gallery in July of 2018. This Project Residency, designed to bring production and presentation together in one season, offers a rare opportunity to support artists and curators (and artists who are also curators) and to directly link our residency program with an Atlanta gallery.

Drawing is the primary medium of Pete Schulte’s practice, which includes the integration of sculpture, site-specific, and curatorial activities. His drawings engage variations of square, circular and triangular forms, appearing like architectural shadows of graphite. Evoking everything from film stills to mechanical parts, Schulte’s work elevates the simplicity of abstraction through precise technical skill. 

Schulte’s exhibitions include whitespace in Atlanta, Drawings and Paintings with John Dilg at Jeff Bailey Gallery in Hudson, New York, The Visual Arts Gallery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and Luise Ross Gallery in New York. His work has been included in recent group exhibitions at Look&Listen, Saint-Chamas, France and Jeff Bailey Gallery, New York. He has been awarded residencies at Yaddo, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Atlantic Center For Art and Threewalls. Schulte teaches at The University of Alabama. He co-founded The Fuel And Lumber Company with Amy Pleasant in summer of 2013.
