Erin McCluskey Wheeler is an artist based in Richmond, California. She has a BA in studio art and art history from Beloit College and an MFA from California College of the Arts. She is a faculty member of the 92NY School of the Arts and a studio facilitator at NIAD Art Center.
Inspired by a close look at the work of Bay Area artists Masako Miki and Woody de Othello in BAMPFA’s galleries, we mix and match household objects, things we see every day, and even items in our pockets to make sculptural friends with personalities and inner lives. Explore how found objects, felt, fabric, and clay can be used to create curious characters with intriguing backstories.
