Private Property
Fall 2005
Woodward Gallery

Woodward Gallery is proud to open the Fall 2005 Art Season with new paintings by Artist Charles Yoder.

“In his glorious new woodland paintings, Charles Yoder transports us to a magical world of shade, shadow and light, ruled by the silent and comforting energy of nature. These eloquent works serve as reminders that groves were the earth’s first temples, havens and sources of inspiration. Painting with infinite attention to detail and nuance, he pays homage to the beauty of the simplest twig emerging from the cover of snow, the grandeur of a towering pine and the haunting mystery of night in a forest.

So completely does Yoder immerse us in nature that we can feel the temperature of the air, the sun falling across our shoulder and smell the fragrant flowers and foliage. He captures summer’s robust lushness with a palette of yellows, oranges, pinks and greens and winter’s chill intensity with silvery blues and grays. Opposing qualities are joined in scrupulously controlled play, giving each work striking dramatic power.

Originally an abstract painter, Yoder brings the same exhilarating rhythms of his earlier works to these highly emotional landscapes. He was converted to figurative art one night when he stepped into his yard and saw the moon through the branches of the trees. Struck by that image, he has successfully worked ever since to share that exhilarating sensation. Like Cezanne, he offers us a familiar world – passionate and cool, grave and light – with a deepened harmony that invites meditation. His private property is now also our own.”

November 6 – December 27, 2003
Woodward Gallery

Woodward Gallery is proud to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Charles Yoder. Shadow Play consists of fifty-five drawings in search of a painting.

In the Spring of this year Artist Charles Yoder embarked on an intensive exploration of light and shadow based on moonlit winter scenes. His materials were combinations of watercolor, gouache, India ink, charcoal, and conte” crayon on various papers. His goal was to find two images suitable for each side of a large folding floor screen. Over the course of Yoder’s experimentation the character of the drawings changed again and again. From dark to light and back again. From warm to cold. From soft to hard. These fifty-five works on paper document that activity. Yoder’s life size folding screen offers a rare opportunity to view his trees growing from another dimension.

Designed to the artist’s specifications the folding screen is a beautifully handcrafted work of black satin finished hardwood construction with fully articulating marine hinges of brushed aluminum. Consisting of four wooden panels and measuring 84 inches high by 108 inches long – it has a strong, sinuous presence. One side depicts a woodland scene of moonlit trees in dark blues, shimmering whites and hints of silver leaf in the night sky. The second side presents the sweeping arc of daylight edged in greens and bright yellows that surround an open field of intricate gold leaf work.

Charles Yoder is a strong believer in the ability of art to heal and comfort, both for the artist and the viewer. It is this feeling that led to the screen’s title- “Tavolette” takes its name from double-sided paintings popular in 15th and 16th century Italy that depicted the passions of Christ. These paintings were often carried in public religious ceremonies in the belief that they had the capacity to grant solace to those who saw them.

In Deep Woods Now
September 7 – October 21, 2000
Woodward Gallery


In his recent body of paintings—dedicated to the memory of his late friend, the well respected artist, Al Taylor—Charles Yoder shares with us his forest utopia.

Yoder’s “Taylor-Made Series” serve as a tribute to their 25 year friendship. His human sized oil canvases ease the viewer into the paintings to privately experience the essence of the woods. These images are inspired by the beauty and complexity of the trees Yoder grew to know in his Northeastern childhood.

Intending for his tree filled canvases to set the stage, the Artist beckons us to become his willing participant. Within close proximity of Yoder’s trees and nature, the viewer may recount his or her personal experiences, or simply delight in the raw emotion that this Artist so passionately expresses with his wooded subjects.
