memory by Bob Schmitt

Minnesota brush painter Bob Schmitt presents seven fabric scrolls alluding to experiences in one’s own inner life:

  • ordinary radiance
  • memory
  • reckless abandon
  • grace
  • wonder
  • rapture
  • faith

Each scroll also incorporates the Chinese character for each allusion in the fabric surrounding the graphic.

Discover experiences that often exist in places beyond words.




A noted below, you are welcome to view this exhibit in person when the Carondelet Center is open.  Due to the limited building hours, we are offering a virtual exhibit of the seven allusions scrolls: the journeys within! You are welcome to view this video in whatever way feels best, pause if you would like to spend more time with any of Bob’s scrolls.





Bob Schmitt is a Quaker and a student and teacher of Chinese calligraphy and painting who lives and paints a stone’s throw from Minnehaha Falls. He began brush painting as a 12-year-old watching public television and has studied weekly with a Chinese painting master for over 20 years.
