We are proud to announce Everything is Quiet, the first solo exhibition of work by Gerald Wiggins.

Gerald Wiggins' (b. 1968) depictions of human figures, animal life, and fantastical creatures are stunningly accomplished. Working with colored pencil, marker, graphite, and watercolor, as with digital printmaking software, Wiggins draws with a precise and controlled line, carefully coloring to convey detail.

Occasionally, key portions of a figure or natural element are left unfinished, or isolated parts are collected together in a single piece; these techniques add visual playfulness to his style. “I like the feeling of making something in your head that doesn’t exist," Wiggins says, "to make it real.” Wiggins also creates ceramic sculptures, from frightening vampiric characters to a rotating cast of life-like city dwellers he calls "the crew." This exhibition features a wide range of his most recent work and host of ceramic figures from all walks of life.

Wiggins joined the Creativity Explored studio in 2008. He co-curated Shoerageous in 2014, an exhibition featuring shoes in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Learn more about Wiggins in this video, which debuted at the annual fundraising gala, Art Changes Lives 2017.

Curated by Visual Arts Instructor Gilles Combet and Studio Director Paul Moshammer.
