Portland, OR. – Jeffrey Thomas Fine Art is pleased to present ELLEN WISNETSKY-MUELLER: MATERIAL WITNESS, an exhibition of drawings, wall and floor sculpture opening on Tuesday, September 13th with a celebratory reception for the artist in the Gallery from 6-8 pm that is free and open to the public.
Only recently relocating her studio to Portland, Oregon, Ellen Wishnetsky-Mueller grew up in Detroit, Michigan. She studied fashion design at Parsons and printmaking and painting at Wayne State University. Wishnetsky-Mueller developed her abstract language in drawings and paintings but eventually developed allergies to the various materials she was painting with and was forced to stop. However, after overseeing an extensive house renovation and working with spatial relationships in a new way on that project, she turned to fabricating her sculptures.
