IHM Gallery Features Wildlife Artist

Now-March 15, 2020, the featured exhibit in the IHM Gallery will be “Keeping It Wild,” the work of Rusty Frentner.

Frentner has spent a lifetime appreciating the beauty and wonder of wildlife and he began to capture that appreciation when still a child. From crayons to watercolors to graphite pencils and then to oils and acrylic paints, he learned about mixing colors and adding details to his work, which has been exhibited locally and around the country. He has conducted myriad workshops and is a member of the Society of Animal Artists, Oil Painters of America and a signature member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society.

Frentner is also involved with plein air painting, the process of setting up paints and easel out in the open and creating a painting. He has earned numerous awards for his artwork, both locally and nationally. He loves going out to the natural world with his paints and exploring keeping it wild!

The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For more information about the exhibit, contact Sharon Venier at svenier@ihmsisters.org or 734-240-9754.
