An Artist’s Collection: Unique & Diverse

Artwork by Toni Wengler

‘’The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even  touched. They must be felt with the heart.’’
– Helen Keller

Toni Wengler

We’re honored to feature Toni Wengler, world traveler and national award-winning artist for this exhibit. Toni’s creativity pursuits began as a teenager with clothing design and progressed into off-loom weavings, interior design, photography, and she even published a cookbook. During her travels, she used her camera to capture places and events, but didn’t fathom what would become of them. In 2006, she created a sketchbook of ideas from these photographs, which she eventually turned into the incredible paintings you see in the gallery.  Today she continues to paint subjects which give life special meaning, in hope that others will feel touched by the beauty of her vision.
