Presented by the Garment District Alliance inside the Kaufman Arcade Building on 139 W 35th Street is artist Rita Wilmers‘ exhibition Coming Full Circle, featuring 14 mixed-media paintings. Known for creating artwork utilizing watercolor, acrylic, pen, and ink, Wilmers’ paintings and drawings seek to tell stories and express her life experiences in a visual form. Over the years Wilmers has exhibited a multitude of solo and group exhibitions across the Tri-State area and had her work featured on two episodes of the hit television series Gossip Girl.

Similar to Wilmers’ other art, Coming Full Circle explores creation without boundaries and the way in which mistakes can oftentimes lead to joyful and unexpected surprises. Coming Full Circle presents its audience with vibrant paintings that dive deep into themes of meditation, nature, cityscapes, time, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The paintings will be on view through August 31, 2022.
