    1

Ed Wheeler, inspired by Winslow Homer, "Snap the Whip" , The Butler Institute of American Art


In this fun holiday inspired exhibition, Wheeler combines a timeless figure with equally timeless paintings by imagining Santa entering the great masterworks of art, with humor and reverence for the original works.


SANTA CLASSICS is a series of images created by artist, photographer Ed Wheeler that is sure to delight museum visitors of all ages. He imagines Santa entering into the great masterworks of art, with humor and reverence for the original works. This exhibition of 34 prints of Wheeler dressed as Santa invading known paintings as the main subject, part of a group or by himself in the landscape, is Wheelers homage to the original paintings while offering art lovers an extra fun reason to smile. To create these images, Wheeler uses a multi-step process to completely integrate Santa into the lighting, brushstrokes and tonal values of a particular painting while maintaining the fidelity of the original. Wheeler selects paintings with composition that would welcome a Santa intervention, or sometimes he just loves the painting and wants to be a part of it.

This exhibition and its programming is made possible in part through a charitable educational grant from the PNC Foundation.
