Chris Wagner has been painting for over 30 years, initially in watercolor before moving to acrylics. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Corcoran School of Art and Design in Washington, DC. Originally from Durham, he has lived in eastern NC for almost 15 years. He shows in several area galleries, including those in New Bern, Kinston, Washington and Atlantic Beach. The subjects that interest him most are portraits and landscapes, but he enjoys occasional forays into abstract as well.
Notes from the Artist:
I am a painter living in New Bern, North Carolina. I graduated from the Corcoran College of Art & Design in 1992; since then I have been selling and showing in galleries each year throughout North Carolina. I love living along the coast of N.C., but my works will often depict my travels throughout the country; I've never been one to happily settle on any one subject.
In the twenty years after I graduated from art school, I was strictly a watercolorist, but have recently branched out to expand my horizons and have been enjoying acrylics on canvas. I've loved the change, but won't be abandoning watercolors any time soon. I do love being able to paint over my mistakes though! I also enjoy the sizes that canvas affords me; I do have to admit it is fun to paint larger than life.
You can find my works in galleries in Morehead City, New Bern, Oriental and also online on Ugallery.com. Ugallery has been a great experience for me; I've sold paintings through them not only all across the country but across the pond to Europe as well.
