Cedarburg artists Diane Henke and Joan Hollnagel let their imaginations run wild as they explore the expression of comedy, wit, and whimsy. Acrylic paint transforms the flat canvas into joyous and fantastical worlds full of clever creatures while clay is shaped into jovial expressions of human emotion in Humor: Henke & Hollnagel.
Sculptor Diane Henke is inspired by Mother Nature and intrigued by the slight changes in facial expressions of individuals she meets. Her charming clay forms reflect a love of observance matched with an esteem for quality craftsmanship and technique.
For over 60 years, Joan Hollnagel has been crafting visual puns with paint by creating anthropomorphic animals and insects and personified natural elements. Hollnagel explores what it is to be human and our relationship with nature in a comical and lighthearted manner.
