Steve Wiman & Beverly Penn Art Exhibit

The St. John Branch of the Austin Public Library invites you to learn about and explore the work of Austin-area artists.

Steve Wiman is an assemblage artist and owner of an unusual antique store in Austin called Uncommon Objects. He is a graduate of the University of North Texas, and he attended graduate art school at The University of Texas. It was the study of color and composition through painting that gave him his aesthetic foundation. His mission as an artist is finding beauty in the mundane and shining a light on it.

Beverly Penn is a sculptor and professor of Metals in Studio Art at the School of Art and Design at Texas State University. She completed her MFA from the State University of New York in New Paltz and received a Fulbright Fellowship and Rockefeller Foundation residency in Bellagio, Italy. Her work explores the contradicting need to both idealize and modify the natural environment.
