Over thirty woodcuts and wood etchings from Raymond Gloeckler estate are now available at the Gallery, subjects ranging from the charming and witty to the politically charged and socially conscious.
Internationally renowned print maker, Raymond Gloeckler, received his bachelor and master’s degrees from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. He taught arts education throughout the state including UW-Oshkosh and for over thirty years at his alma mater, UW-Madison.
Gloeckler has exhibited nationally and internationally. He was also one of three invited members in the British Society of Wood Engravers and his works are included in many public and private collections.
Gloeckler is known for his intrepid caricatures and bold, gestural patterns and lines. For Wisconsin Academy Gallery director, Randall Berndt, "his prints and paintings continue to comment on humanity's follies and foibles in a unique style that has defied art world trendiness”.
