CHARLES MUENCH loves the lonely places. It is in the West, under a vast open sky, that the artist finds inspiration for his landscape paintings. To truly understand the subject of your art, he declares, you must immerse yourself in it fully. And so he doeshis home ground is outside the small town of Gardnerville, NV, with its high desert bordered by the Pine Nut Mountains to the east and the massive Sierras to the west. From here he journeys to favorite spots he revisits regularly throughout the West.
Paul and Susan Bingham, founders of the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts, which is responsible for preserving the Maynard Dixon property in Utah and hosting the Maynard Dixon Country annual art show, met Muench when he was fresh out of the Art Students League, and they were immediately impressed with his work. From the beginning, Charles showed incredible talent, says Susan. He has transformed himself into an accomplished landscape painter, filling his paintings with exquisite color and light that are based on sound principles of drawing, design, composition, perspective, and, most importantly, a style that is all his own. It has been a joy to watch this very fine artist become a notch above so many others.
