From an idea to a masterpiece, the Artist in Residence Program at Nemacolin offers an opportunity for artists to live at the resort and share their works in gallery and retail spaces, in workshops and classes, and within the landscape of all Nemacolin offers. Resort guests, members, and associates are invited to engage with Nemacolin artists, observing their techniques and creative processes through a unique experience.
Dorit Brauer, a Pittsburgh-based abstract artist, is a part of the September program. Her work has been exhibited in Israel, Germany, and the U.S. Brauer considers the creation of art a sacred ritual: She meditates and reaches a higher state of consciousness prior to the artistic expression on a canvas. Her bold and colorful oil paintings are her love letter to life.
Through her art, Dorit welcomes viewers to look deeply and dive into the world of their inner self — to see each color individually — and to let it represent a memory, a thought, an emotion, a place, or a lover while embracing the colorful tapestry of life, therefore allowing the puzzle pieces of each experience to be combined into wholeness.
“We choose every moment through our thoughts,” says Brauer. “Every thought that enters our mind creates reality … there are no coincidences; everything is connected.”
Her artistic expression goes far beyond the canvas. She is a holistic educator, motorcycle adventurer, award-winning author, explorer of labyrinths (and a builder, too!), and a practitioner of meditative journeys.
