Wasmer Art Gallery

February 1 - March 1, 2018

Artist Lecture in U. Tobe Recital Hall at 5pm with an Opening Reception to follow in the Arts Complex | February 1, 2018 | 5-7pm

Wischer works in a variety of media from sculptural objects, to installations, to video, sound and public works. With our increasing global climate crisis, Wischer has shifted focus to incorporate and highlight environmental issues; finding ways to translate data into personal understanding and create artwork that moves the viewer in poetic ways. She seeks a wide range of data that can be used to creatively link nature with technology, science with mythology and personal identity with universal connections.

Wischer will partner with FGCU faculty Win Everham, Professor of Environmental Studies, along with other faculty and students to create new restorative artwork on campus and present digital works inside the gallery related to the same topic.

Sponsored by Gene and Lee Seidler, Alice and Dean Fjelstul and State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture
