Every month here at the Winkler Gallery and Art Education Center, we honor one of our member artists as Artist of the Month. All of our artists produce stunning work of all varieties that pass through a juried selection progress to be displayed at the gallery. The Artist of the Month allows us to zoom in on them one at a time. For March 2017, the honor goes to Claira Heitzenrater.
Claira is a relatively new member of the gallery, but has already gathered quite a bit of attention with her additions to the space. Her work, available at the Winkler Gallery, is ghostly paintings of every day objects. To get the full experience, you'll have to come visit us, but I'll give you a taste of her work here:
This month, I sat down with Claira at the Brockway Center for Arts and Technology for an interview where we talked about how she came to be a part of the Winkler Gallery, what inspires her work, and her thoughts on art in today's world. Also there's quite a bit of talk of life and death. Enjoy:
We share opportunities and news here on the Winkler Gallery and Art Education Center Blog.
