Paintings on View at Boerner Botanical Gardens
Paintings by Gwen Granzow are on display through Dec 30.
While some of Granzow’s works are influenced by landscapes and natural elements, most have an explosive energy. She invites viewers to break free from convention and the constraints of reality. In making her art, she layers shapes, textures, and colors to enrich the surface with a dimensional quality.
Granzow has worked as the creative director at the branding firm Design North for more than 20 years and has been a guest lecturer at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, the University of Wisconsin, Cardinal Stritch University, and Alverno College.
Her work has been accepted in shows throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Among the galleries having shown her work are the Villa Terrace Museum of Decorative Arts, the Museum of Wisconsin Art, and the Anderson Arts Center.
Granzow’s work will be on display in the Garden House, from 9 a.m.–3 p.m., seven days a week. The Botanical Gardens will be open daily until the first snowfall. No admission will be charged for entrance to the exhibit or botanical gardens.
