Coffee & Conversation
Join us for an artist talk with Joni Wehrli on Saturday, May 6th, at 12 pm.
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. Her work has been shown in group exhibitions in galleries, alternative spaces, and university museums in New York and throughout the East Coast, including White Columns, Pace University, SUNY Albany, Hartwick College, and Marymount Manhattan College. She is a board member of the Catskill Art Space and serves as board liaison on CAS’s Art Council.
The activities of the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance are made possible in part by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support from the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
