Three Interpretations
by Jan Norsetter, Diane Washa,
and Jonathan Wilde

Friday, June 5, 2020 through Monday, September 14, 2020
Frehner Gallery


In 2008, Wisconsin artists Jan Norsetter, Diane Washa, and Jonathan Wilde all began their artistic journey together on a cold and snowy day in Mazomanie, Wisconsin during a plein-air workshop taught by Wilde. The workshop was Norsetter’s and Washa’s foray into painting winter landscapes outdoors, an experience which left an indelible impact on both painters. Over the next several years, the frequency of all three painting together intensified and led to the mastering of the art form.

Three Interpretations showcases the artistic evolution of three plain air painters and their enduring friendship; as well as represents the unique and varied styles of the painters, from representational to poetic.
Monroe Arts Center gallery exhibitions and opening receptions are free and open to the public.
