Denise Minnerly

Exploring the interconnectedness of humanity, Denise Minnerly’s passion fires her work as she transforms human reaction and social mores into her paintings, etchings and sculptures. “The Village Project” an installation asks participants from a wide spectrum within communities to create their version of “home”. The project has traveled from college galleries to museums. Most recently her attention has been focused on understanding human nature. Observing horses and our own human reaction she delves into the similarity of our state of awareness. Using paint, plaster and pigments traditionally used in the renaissance she communicates her own identity as it relates to the understanding of the human condition.

Denise Minnerly graduated from the University of Vermont with a BS in art education and BFA in the arts. She continued her art education at the Arts Student League in New York City and the Silvermine School of Art in Connecticut. She is the illustrator of three published children’s books relating to art; The Color Tree, Molly Meets Mona and Friends and Painting the Town. Minnerly exhibits her work in the Tri-State area. Her paintings are displayed by public corporations throughout the Northeast.
