Brian Sindler has exhibited widely in individual and group shows. In additional to gallery exhibitions, he has been a regular exhibitor at the Salmagundi Club in New York, the Plein Air Festival in Door County, Wisconsin, and the Cedarburg Plein Air Competition. He has been awarded numerous prizes in these competitions.
From time to time Sindler conducts painting workshops at the North Shore Art League in Winnetka, Illinois, and at the School of Representational Art in Chicago.
His tonalist style has had a very contemporary sensibility about it. But since around 2012, he has produced some paintings that come closer to the American Tonalism style of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. This work is somewhat more painterly and less abstract, although the forms are still highly simplified. In these paintings, formal considerations take a back seat to contrasting tonalities and color harmonies. The effect is both poetic and sublime.
