Teen Art Salon with Rhonda Weppler

Wed, Oct 21, 2020

Just for teens ages 13–18, a free virtual studio visit with MAD Artist-in-Residence Rhonda Weppler. Teen Art Salons are organized and hosted on Zoom by MAD’s Artslife teen interns.


Rhonda Weppler makes sculptural still lifes using the centuries-old technique of repoussé, in which a malleable metal is shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. Embossing aluminum, brass, and copper foils on objects, Weppler creates residual shells that serve as commentary on the ephemerality of all things. Weppler presented an exhibition in collaboration with the MFA Boston’s Community Arts Initiative, and has exhibited extensively across Canada with her frequent collaborator, Trevor Mahovsky. Weppler received an MFA from the University of British Columbia and a BA from the University of Toronto.
