The gallery is located inside the Krannert Hall of Art and Music, and it is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. each day.
A public reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, February 23, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The reception will be held in the Krannert Gallery. The exhibit and reception are part of the Emerging Contemporary Artist Lecture Series, sponsored by the Efroymson Family Fund and the UE Department of Art.
Diane Ubelhor-Wunderlich studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, where she developed a love for watercolor. In 2001 she attended a workshop in Montana by renowned wildlife artist, Robert Bateman, which advanced her interest in painting wildlife and the nature surrounding it. Ubelhor-Wunderlich has won several awards, and her work has been featured in multiple publications.
“I have a variety of subjects that I enjoy painting, but wildlife has been one of my favorites,” said Ubelhor-Wunderlich. “As I paint, I try to bring out those same emotions that were evoked in me when I took the photo.”
