Tahawus Center hosts New Online Gallery
“A TOUCH OF WHIMSY,” Illustrations by Johannes Gaertner
A master of whimsy, “years ahead of his time” in his reflections on humanity, and beloved as a Lafayette College professor, Johannes Gaertner’s many drawings remained hidden from view—until now!
25 years after his death, his daughter Susanna fulfilled a long-time desire, and brought the extensive collection to light. Today Gaertner’s works appear fresh and coy and reveal a curious and contemplative mind. A retrospective exhibit of 75 pen and ink drawings was held at the R. Blitzer Gallery in Santa Cruz, CA in September of 2021.
Now, Susanna Gaertner has opened an online gallery of over 50 works for viewing. The exhibit is hosted by the Tahawus Center of Au Sable Forks, NY, which joins a major trend in art galleries expanding to include virtual art. Displaying this rare collection digitally provides convenient access and attracts more visitors. Collectors can view the exhibit from all around the world without traveling and the new collector may feel less intimidated to dip their toes into the exclusive art world.
