Please join the TK community as we honor long time resident Roger Wheeler with a grand retrospective exhibition and sale. Nearly 50 of Roger’s charming and fantastical works will be on view, including sculpture, painting, and masks.
Roger is currently in the midst of a long hospital stay, and is facing significant changes to his way of life going forward, including the need for dedicated care. Roger is much beloved in the TK community. When we asked him how we could help with his artwork, he said, “Sell it, I want it all to go!” And that’s exactly what we’re doing with this retrospective exhibition.
Roger has dedicated his life to art making and community arts activities. Before moving into the TK in 2004, Roger was a long time resident of the Fremont neighborhood. He is a founding member of the Fremont Arts Council, and helped spearhead many of its projects, including the annual Solstice Parade, the Fremont Fair, and weekly markets. Many of his striking masks, which he began creating for use in the parade, will be on view in the exhibition. Works of all sizes and in all price ranges will be available.
Please share this opportunity to celebrate Roger widely! We wish to reach as many people as possible who have worked alongside him throughout the years, as well as those who are appreciative of the life long community contributions of artists like him.
