Linda Wesner : Ohio Landscapes
June 25 - July 31
in the Main Hall Gallery
Linda Wesner proudly admits that she has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil. Early in her career, she fancied herself as the “Nancy Drew” of family history, searching for clues on her family’s former daily farm in Central New York.
Throughout her 30-year art career she has used those detective skills to capture rural landscapes in oil and colored pencils. After following her husband’s corporate career moves around the country, Linda has settled in Lewis Center where she now concentrates on capturing the rural side of Delaware County before, as she describes it, they vanish due to growth and development.
She is always on the lookout for images including old buildings, forgotten roads or lonely railroad crossings. When she sees an image that catches her eye as appealing and suitable for her artwork, she’ll pull over to the side of the road, grab her trusty digital camera, which is always by her side, and photograph it to take back to her studio and re-create the mood.
“I invite you to view my drawings and paintings and contemplate the landscape – ever changing yet enduring – from my perspective.”
Linda has received national recognition for her art and has held exhibits in New York, New Jersey and Florida. Her award-winning work is available locally at the Marcia Evans Gallery in the Short North Arts District at 8 East Lincoln St. You can also view many of her images on her website at www.lawesner.com.
The Cultural Arts Center is proud to be able to share her work during her exhibit in the Main Hall Gallery. The Center will host a reception for Linda on Friday, June 25, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
