"Structures” by Rainer Maria Wehner will be on display at Herkimer College’s Cogar Gallery.
Wehner was born in Munich, Germany, and grew up in Bamberg, in North Bavaria. He completed two graduate degrees, one in art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe and the other in art history at the University of Karlsruhe. In 1991, he moved to Berlin and eventually to the U.S., now residing in Utica, NY. He has exhibited at the Houghton House Gallery, Geneva, NY, the Munson-Williams-Proctor Museum, Utica, NY, SUNY Institute of Technology, Utica, NY and the Schweinfurth Museum, Auburn, NY. His work is in the permanent collections of Utica College and the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.
The exhibit “Structures” is based on the structures of handwriting and those of the human body through x-rays, combined with the elements of language.
The Cogar Gallery is open to the public free of charge from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. when the College is open.
