Opening Reception for Joni Wehrli
Join us for an opening reception for the exhibition, Garden Variety by artist Joni Wehrli on Saturday, April 1st, from 4 PM to 6 PM in the Alliance Gallery.
About the exhibit:
Joni Wehrli oscillates between painting and sculpture, creating otherworldly biomorphic imaginings. Her sculptures reference forms found in her paintings, which were inspired by illustrations in medical textbooks. When Wehrli extracts these organic forms from her paintings and transitions them into sculptures, the results expose the artist’s comical side, revealed through her joining together of disparate and often unyielding materials.
Joni Wehrli is a painter and sculptor who lives and works in New York City and Livingston Manor. She began her career during the 1980s in the East Village and has had multiple solo exhibitions in NYC and Livingston Manor.
