Ann Resnick | Chapter & Verse

January 27, 2022 — May 7, 2022

Ann Resnick has been making conceptually complex and visually sumptuous art for over forty years. She starts with the personal—her own family history, marriage, broad reading tastes, and friendships with a large circle of correspondents near and far. She then turns the raw materials of her life into deeply moving universal ruminations on loss and remembrance, the need to capture intangible emotional ties through tangible objects, and the beauty that can be found in the awareness of the finitude of our time on earth. Ann is also a pillar of contemporary art in Wichita who has worked for twenty-five years as a gallerist, activist, and exhibiting artist to benefit our community. Shown nationally and internationally, however, much of her work has never been seen in Wichita. This exhibition will present the highlights of her artistic career going back to the 1990s, showcasing her inventiveness in a variety of media, painstaking dedication to her craft, and ability to create beauty and meaning out of the most basic facts of every human life.
