The Wildly Weird World of Werner Wildner

Werner Wildner Barn Owl - 1976.3.91

January 8 – February 27, 2022

Werner Wildner’s work consists of surrealist images and fantastical meditations that reflect humankind’s desires, vices, and virtues, as well as the 15th century style of Hieronymus Bosch. The artist, who spent considerable time in Nashville, exhibited his first regional solo show at Cheekwood in 1962. Cheekwood is thrilled to offer a look into the wildly weird, world of Wildner once again in the mansion’s Graphic Arts Gallery with this unique and thought-provoking exhibition.

Werner Wildner (American, 1925-2004), Barn Owl, 1950-1975, Graphite, ink wash, and chalk on paper, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Alan Berry, 1976.3.91.
