After-Work Networking Event
Join the German-American business community to see the work of German artist Carolin Wehrmann at Craighead Green Gallery, one of the finest contemporary art galleries throughout Texas and the Southwest.
Carolin Wehrmann is considered one of the world‘s leading contemporary painters of seascapes and aquatic scenes.The artist has developed the genre of seascapes and the subject of water in an extraordinarily consistent and intense way. With her glazing technique, a result of profound knowledge of the use of pigments, oils and resins, Carolin achieves a fascinating effect of depth in her latest variation of contemporary realism. In the “Reflections” series she succeeds in significantly redefining the water motif. The viewer is led away from the here and now into a realm of deeper meaning and thus beyond the bounds of the painting.
Her works can be found in significant public and private collections as well as superyachts and private planes. Among her most famous customers are Lürssenwerft Company and globally renowned interior architect Terence Disdale, who says "Carolin takes the meaning of beauty & detail to a new level. Her works are undoubtedly the finest I have ever seen.” More on Carolin and her work.
