In advance of the opening of Dannielle Tegeder: Painting in the Extended Field at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art, a video highlighting her work and exhibition was featured on the front page of artdaily.org on April 17. An abstract painter based in New York City, Tegeder’s work challenges the boundaries of traditional painting through the integration of animation, sculpture, installation, photography, and sound. The video was created by Hamilton junior Ben Salzman.
The exhibition, Tegeder’s first solo museum exhibition, focuses on her work from the last five years in various media and features new works created specifically for the Wellin’s presentation, including a 50-foot wall drawing, a site-specific installation, and a series of large-scale paintings and drawings. It will open on May 11 until July 28 and is curated by Wellin Museum Director Tracy L. Adler.
Tegeder is a mid-career artist whose work has been exhibited extensively around the world including solo gallery shows in New York City, Berlin, Paris, Mexico City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, and Chicago. She received a BFA from SUNY Purchase and an MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago. She is a professor of art at Lehman College, CUNY.
