Charmaine Wheatley sequentially records encounters with people and places using watercolor, drawing, and conversations. She looks at how people move and breathe and listens closely to what they say. Her portraits depict the moment of connection between human beings and are often housed in pocket-sized boxes or unfold in letters and graphic novels.

Sign up to join Charmaine Wheatley in the Historic Palace for an intimate conversation and a 45-minute portrait sitting. At the end of the project, you will receive a print of the drawing as a souvenir.

Wheatley first came to the Museum as an Artist-in-Residence in 2012, and has since done over 100 portraits of visitors. These are on view on the third floor of the Renzo Piano-designed New Wing. Following her project at the Gardner, Wheatley was invited to work at the University of Rochester Medical Center on an ongoing series of portraits of people who live with mental illness, HIV, and the professionals who work within these communities. The goal of the project is to de-stigmatize two vulnerable populations in an effort to grow compassion and understanding.
