Artists » Art Werger

"Artists achieve a personal expression through their work which may move viewers to a variety of emotions, stimulate their own imagination, and perhaps encourage them to achieve new levels of vision. Art Werger's etchings and mezzotints realize just such an end, inviting his audience to consider the unfolding scene as though they were casual bystanders. His work encourages viewers to weave their own interpretations of the unfolding action and the transient vision and captivates as only a drama of small intensity can. "
