Wendy Prellwitz’ abstracted landscapes are focused on water imagery and coastal light — inspired by her connection to bays, creeks and rivers. Her monotypes, oil paintings and watercolors are informed by growing up with watery views on the North Fork of Long Island, and painting outdoors along the rocky coasts of Mohegan Island and Ireland.

This year she is exhibiting in a group show at the Bromfield Galley and has a solo show in Cambridge in the Fall. The last 2 years, she showed in Colorado, the Provincetown Art Association & Museum and had 4 solo shows of paintings & prints in Greenport, Cutchogue and Southold, New York and in Cambridge.

In 2014, she was painting in Ireland on a continuing fellowship from the Ballinglen Arts Foundation and was awarded first place in Direct/Indirect, a juried print show at the Chandler Gallery in Cambridge.

In 2012 she exhibited prints at The Boston Public Library, in “Re-Think Ink, 25 years at Mix-it Print Shop”.

Museum shows include “Eire / Land” at Boston College’s McMullen Museum, and “Morning, Noon, and Night” at The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook, New York.

Wendy was originally awarded a Fellowship from the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in 1998, and continuing fellowships from 2000 to 2014, to live and paint along Ireland’s west coast in County Mayo. She also received a Grant-in-Aid from the St Botolph St Foundation in 2002, which funded a painting trip to Rome.

She attended the Rhode Island School of Design and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She teaches at the Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, MA, co-founded her architectural firm Prellwitz/Chilinski Associates in 1980, and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Peconic, New York.
