Summer Wheat’s paintings and sculptural forms are characterized by expressive structure and color that challenge the limits of material and process. She centers her subject matter upon the figure and narrative, and utilizes innovative painting techniques to create rich, fiber-like surfaces.

  

Wheat earned an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005 and a BA from the University of Central Oklahoma in 2000. Solo exhibitions include Oklahoma Contemporary, Oklahoma City, OK; Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington, Seattle, WA; and the Savannah College of Art and Design Museum, Atlanta, GA. Group exhibitions include the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; and the De Cordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA. She is the recipient of the Artadia Prize given to one artist at the 2016 NADA New York.
