The Many Media of Wendy Daniel

August 21 – September 18, 2015

Reception Friday, August 21, 5:00 – 8:00 pm

 

The Many Media of Wendy Daniel presents whimsical folk art by local artist, Wendy Daniel. Her playful approach includes various media including drawing, collage, fiber art, wood sculpture, papier-mâché, and mixed media.

 

Wendy Daniel explores folk art with upbeat joy and humor. The tradition of folk art is creative work that is usually of a naïve and decorative style rather than high aesthetic. Frequently local culture and icons are the inspiration for the artist. Celebrated for its uninhibited purity, folk art can portray its subjects with spirited exuberance. Wendy’s caricatures of cats, dogs, fish, butterflies, and birds maintain this tradition. The “Cat” made of papier-mâché or her brightly colored fish are fun and lively. Wendy explains her art “I do not create folk art to be serious. I create the work to delight the viewer. I hope it makes them smile or laugh.”

The artist will be present for a reception held on Friday, August 21 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Wine, Rogue Creamery cheese, and Harry and David snacks will be served.
