View exhibition page Wayne Trapp, A Life in the Arts

Wayne Trapp was an enigmatic artist; some would say a Renaissance man – the consummate artist who does a bit of everything, always executing his chosen craft well. This exhibition features a variety of Trapp’s creative work: paintings, drawings in pencil and ink on paper and intimate sculptural forms in bronze and steel.
