Wendy Prellwitz’s abstracted landscapes focus on images of water, in oil paintings, watercolors, and monotypes. Her work is focused on coastal light and atmosphere and her connection to the North Fork of Long Island, Monhegan Island in Maine, and Ireland.
In Ireland, she was awarded a Fellowship from the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in 1998, and continuing fellowships from 2000 to 2007, to live and paint along North Mayo's west coast. She also received a Grant-in-Aid from the St. Botolph Club Foundation in 2002, which funded a painting trip to Rome.
In 2009, she exhibited monotypes at the Lenz Winery on Long Island and was included in The Unique Print, a group show at the Concord Art Association in Concord, MA. In 2008, she showed prints and paintings in a two-person show at Whitney Artworks in Portland, ME and a group show in Southold, NY. Previously, she was included in a show of prints at Regis College’s Carney Gallery in Weston, MA, monoprints and paintings at the Corey Creek Vineyard in Southold, NY, paintings at the US Ambassador’s Residence in Dublin, Ireland, and completed a mural installation for a private residence in Brookline, MA.
Museum shows include Eire/Land at Boston College’s McMullen Museum and Morning, Noon, and Night at The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook, NY.
In prior years, Prellwitz has been a member of the Bromfield Gallery, and has also exhibited in Long Island, Cambridge, Martha’s Vineyard, Maine, New Hampshire, and Ireland. Collectors of her work include individuals, corporations, The Long Island Museum, and the Ballinglen Archive.
