Meet Chris Wagner our guest artist this month

Chris Wagner is an artist living in New Bern, NC. A graduate of the Corcoran School of Art & Design (BFA ’92), he paints in both acrylic and watercolor. His work is diverse, ranging from abstract to representational portraiture and landscapes. All of his works are painted either from life or from photos he has taken. Ever mindful of that next painting being literally around the bend in the road, he keeps cameras with him at all times, and will often go on long country drives in search of subjects. Rural settings and farm animals are two favorite sources of inspiration.

Besides being an artist himself, Chris is a gallery owner as well. The Sanctuary Gallery in New Bern represents almost a dozen artists from both outside of NC and across the state. He loves promoting the work of others, and has even organized an art tour in New Bern. The Neuse River Artists Studio Tour had its inaugural event last May, and included almost 50 artists displaying and working across the city.
