Oenone Hammersley: Water Paintings
April 11, 2019 @ 11:00 am - May 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
The Walter Wickiser Gallery is proud to announce an exhibit of Oenone Hammersley’s Water Paintings, from April 11th to May 21st, 2019.
Award-winning artist Oenone Hammersley is best known for her rainforest and wildlife paintings. She has been exhibiting regularly since 1980, with shows in the U.S.A, Europe, Africa and Australia. Oenone spent three years living in Tanzania painting African wildlife, In Greece she used Greek mythological figures to illustrate her paintings, working both in oil on canvas and watercolour and gouache on paper. Oenone spent two years living in Australia and traveled to Papua New guinea to paint the birds of paradise prior to her exhibition on the birds and frogs of Australia and P.N.G.
Oenone’s recent water paintings are prompted by a deep concern for both the lack of water in some parts of the world, the pollution of our oceans and the poor management of our water resources. Her paintings aim to help people realize how precious water is to our existence. This collection of paintings are dedicated to Save our Seas.
An opening reception for “Water Pantings” will be held on Thursday May 2nd, from 6 – 8 pm. For further information, please contact the gallery at (212) 941-1817, Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
