This retrospective exhibition features the colorful and joyful paintings and collages of Beaumont artist and life-long resident George Wentz. He began drawing and painting at age five and continued developing his artistic interests and talents in high school while studying under the highly popular Beaumont artist Herman Hugg. Wentz’s artistic style is defined as gestural and abstract expressionist with colors and vivacity reminiscent of the French post-impressionists. In addition to the hopefulness and joy that emerges in Wentz’s paintings, is the personality of the artist himself that is described by many as child-like and jovial.
