WARSAW — Warsaw High School Performing Art Center welcomes artists Elizabeth Wamsley and Brenda Stichter who will exhibit their works in pottery and paint.
Stichter’s colorful abstract paintings are paired with the pottery and sculpture of Wamsley, and they play off one another in repeated themes, colors, and textures. A bright spot in the cold, gray winter, this cheerful exhibit invites thoughtful examination and warm celebration.
Stichter was trained in Commercial Art at the University of Northwestern, St. Paul, but has been “painting seriously” for the last several years since she and he husband became empty-nesters. Her acrylic paintings are mostly abstract portrayals of Scripture passages or principles. She uses texture and iridescent paint in many of her paintings, and has a personal symbol in almost every painting representing her relationship with her Heavenly Father. Occasionally, she will also paint representational or experimental work. She has participated in local, state and national exhibitions and contests, and is currently teaching, studying, and painting regularly in the pursuit of excellence in her work. She works in a studio in her home near Warsaw.
Both artists are members of the Lakeland Art Association.
The Performing Arts Center Gallery is open to faculty and student through the day. It is open to the public from 2:45 until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please use visitor parking at main entrance. It is also visible during all evening performances at the Performing Arts Center.
