Virtual Art Exhibit: Paintings by Anne Wedler
October 1, 2020 - October 15, 2020
Anne Wedler will present an Artist Talk on Zoom on September 23 at 5:00 p.m. Anne Wedler is an artist based in southwestern Minnesota. She writes of her work, “I am an observational painter interested in narrative and visual metaphor. I find figure painting to be a natural fit for story telling. The extreme can feel so real and unreal at the same time. I love the chaos and adventure of human interaction augmented by the process of growing and trying to make it through life. I place the people in my work at odds with each other or their environments and it comes out a mixture of complicated feelings. I like balancing the fun of chaos with the dual joy and torture of intimacy; solitude as a sanctuary and penance.”The Watkins Gallery’s exhibitions and events are mostly virtual this semester, but there is an opportunity to connect online and engage with some amazing artists.
