Political Advocate & Artist
Following his discharge from the Army Schlick had two exhibits of his art work at Colby College. Prior to his graduation with a B.A. from the University of San Francisco the artist taught painting and watercolor at the California Labor School where he also studied ceramics and silk screen printing.
Since opening ECS Associates, a communications and graphic design business in Maine, Schlick has continued doing and exhibiting paintings and watercolors. In the mid and late 1980s the artist made several extended trips to paint in France, Italy and Spain and also resumed work with Oguiss who was then painting and exhibiting in Paris. Schlick considers his approach to painting to be most closely related to the Fauve artists who worked with Matisse in the early 20th Century.
Ed passed away on Sept 10, 2013. Additional photos of his work and some of his writing/poetry will be featured here soon.
