Wolf River Art League will host Ryan Radtke at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 18, in the New London Family Medical Center cafeteria.
The event is free and open to the public.
Radtke has been painting watercolors for over 15 years and enjoys teaching watercolor to adults and children. He is partial to street scenes and landscapes, light and shadow play an important role in each painting.
Ryan loves watercolor because of the subtle nuances that can’t be achieved in any other medium. His work is inspired by the beauty of nature and he is compelled to try to recreate it on paper.
Radke’s awards for 2010 include First Place at Wolf River Art League Mid Winter Art Exhibit in New London; Artisan Award at Art in the Garden in Oshkosh; the Waupaca Foundry Award at the Waupaca Fine Arts Festival; a State Exhibit Award from the Wisconsin Regional Artist Program; First Place at the Rural Rembrandt Annual Show; Grand Champion at the Waushara County Fair and the Chinese Fine Art Association Award at the Wisconsin Regional Art Program’s State Exhibit.
The Wolf River Art League 40 year anniversary exhibit is up until Dec. 1 at the County Post East newspaper office, 416 W. North Water Street in New London.
