Untitled pastel

by William Saltzman, 1998

About the art

This pastel piece by local artist William Saltzman is an artistic island floating amid the calligraphy of Diane von Arx, which states: “The larger the island of knowledge, the greater the shoreline of wonder!” A vivid study in blues and greens, the pastel shows swirling sky above cresting ocean waves, pairing with the words to convey the depth, expansiveness and adventure of learning.
