Known for her landscapes, interiors and water imagery, Nancy Wissemann-Widrig’s latest work includes a series of painting of friends – all of whom happen to be artists. She started with her husband, John, seated in his studio surrounded by the material he uses in his own practice. Over the summer she paid visits to her friends to paint them as they worked or welcomed them to her studio. The series is on-going.
Wissemann-Widrig’s engagment with realism integrates elements of modernist and more traditional painting. Her land and seascapes revel in the play of light on her subjects – to which she often has a strong emotional connection. Critic Gerritt Henry described her as paying “homage to the elusive yet tangible beauties of nature run amok”.
Wissemann-Widrig’s work is in the collections of the The Portland Museum of Art, Portland, Maine and the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, Maine as well as many other private, public and corporate collections. Besides exhibiting at the Caldbeck Gallery she been represented by the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York, the Tatischeff Gallery in New York and the Midtown Payson Gallery of Hobe Sound, Florida and Portland, Maine. She appears in publications from Who’s Who in American Art to Paintings of Maine by Carl Little and Long Island Landscape Painting by Ron Pisano. She lives and works in Southold, New York on the north fork of Long Island and in Cushing, Maine.
