"Splatter Art," featuring the new landscape oils of Fairfield painter Karl Soderlund, will be on exhibit Tuesday, April 1, to 19 at the Geary Gallery in Darien.

Soderlund is known for his landscapes, seascapes and portrait oil paintings, as well as his unique style, known as splatter art painting.

By using a brush, much like a conductor uses a baton to direct an orchestra, Soderlund literally splatters paint onto his canvas to create scenes of amazing detail.

Soderlund teaches at the Rowayton Arts Center in Norwalk.

His work is hanging in more than 250 public and private collections. His paintings have been shown in galleries and featured on television and in magazines and newspapers.

Admission is free. The gallery, 576 Boston Post Road, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information, call 203-655-6633 or visit www.gearygallery.com.

In 2002, Soderlund led the introduction of the Heisman Trophy Awards on national television by painting that year's winner. In 2010, he had his first solo exhibit at the National Arts Club in New York City featuring his series "Iconic Obsessions."

Admission is free. The gallery, 576 Boston Post Road, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information, call 203-655-6633 or visit www.gearygallery.com.
