Reception for Aaron Wuerker @ Sagebrush Community Art Center
Mar 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — An artist reception for Buffalo artist Aaron Wuerker will be held on Friday March 6 from 5-7 p.m. at the Sagebrush Community Art Center.

Wuerker’s show, “Aaron Wuerker: Recent Landscapes,” will be on display through March 31 in the center’s Invitational Gallery.

Wuerker earned a bachelor’s in fine arts from Kansas City Art Institute in 1992 and a master’s in fine arts from Yale University in 1995. He and his wife, Jenny, also a renowned artist, own the Crazy Woman Fine Art Gallery in Buffalo.

“My work has continually returned to a realist vision of the landscape,” Wuerker said. “I’m usually drawn to compositions where mechanized forms either mimic or contrast with the natural forms in the land.”

The art center is located at 201 E. Fifth St.
