After graduating from the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Kathie Wheeler has worked as a freelance commercial artist and as a portrait artist. Today she enjoys painting en plein air and from her studio on a small farm in southwestern Wisconsin. This exhibition showcases the 2014 Cedarburg Plein Air Event best-of-show award-winning artist with an array of her intimate, rural scenes. In the manner of the French Barbizon School, the Hudson River School, and the American Impressionists who took to the fields and woods with their sketchbooks and paints to record the beauty of their surroundings, Kathie Wheeler’s paintings capture the essence and emotive nature of her outdoor subjects.
