Two shows scheduled for May 2019

Plans finalized for two upcoming exhibitions.

Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor, NY, will help mark Holocaust Memorial Day with a month long exhibition of the six works from the Benennen series (2016). Benennen, which in German means "to name”, is the title for mixed media sculpture completed after a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. This will be the first occasion in which the series has been publicly seen in its entirety. 

The Dan Welden Gallery in Sag Harbor, NY will feature the work of Art Wegner and Rob Calvert for the gallery's first show of 2019. The show is expected to include a series of prints in collaboration with master printmaker Dan Welden.
