PORT EDWARDS – The Alexander House Center for Art and History will welcome a new exhibition to celebrate the holiday season, featuring Watercolor Paintings by Connie Henke, Wisconsin Rapids, with Sculpture and Jewelry by William Karberg, Port Edwards. “I feel very fortunate to be able to create art and to share that love with my students,” said Henke. “My students are inspiring, highly motivated and energetic.  Teaching art and making art – it can’t get any better than that.” Of her watercolors, Henke says,” The spontaneity of watercolor allows for short periods of work time.  This works well with my schedule as an art teacher, mother/wife and Art Director at the Alexander House.  Watching color and water play out on the paper is very inspiring; the magic is in letting go.  I love the variety of techniques and styles that can be used in watercolor.  I can have as much control or as little control as I allow.” She said that her work is an expression of her current surroundings, “I often start my paintings from sketches and photographs.” Connie enjoys participating in workshops and classes offered by well-known watercolor artists as she feels there is always something new to learn...
