Wibergart Gallery will present the kaleidoscopic images of Wendy Kessler, featured artist, during August. The opening reception will be from 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 10, during the Mosaic Art Walk. The gallery is in the Galleries at 20 Baltimore Ave. in Rehoboth Beach.
Kessler has been working as a graphic designer and artist for more than 25 years. She began her career with a BFA in photographic illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Working as a photographer in New York and Ohio, she realized that she wanted to be responsible for the entire page. This led her to the MFA program in publication design at the University of Baltimore.
Her work is created through photography. Her kaleidoscopic images begin with each element of the work in the camera. They are then cut out and added to a library of individual items, which are then selected for color and balance to build the repeated elements that make up the whole.
Kessler’s work is on display in Studio 3 in the Galleries at 20 Baltimore. In addition, her work has been shown at the Muscoot Farmhouse Gallery in Katonah, N.Y. Kessler has been recognized with a Golden Inkwell Award by the International Association of Business Communicators and a Silver Inkwell Award by the Washington, D.C . Chapter of the ABC.
