Loon with Young by Owen Gromme

Holy Wisdom Monastery is pleased to share a collection of artist’s proofs by Owen Gromme

Owen Gromme was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and was the son of an avid outdoorsman. He was a member of the Art Commission of the City of Milwaukee and was the curator at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

In 1967, Gromme was commissioned to paint a series of wildlife scenes for Marshall & Ilsey Bank of Milwaukee. The project took about two years and provided a complete gallery of his work for the new building which the company was constructing in downtown Milwaukee. Holy Wisdom Monastery received a large set of artist’s proofs from a neighbor in 1999.

Holy Wisdom Monastery has nine framed pieces hung in the gathering area, all of which are for sale. Holy Wisdom Monastery has several other unframed pieces that are also for sale. If you are interested, please contact Amy Bonomie at abonomie@benedictinewomen.org, 608-836-1631, x124.

A complete list of the collection with pricing information is available.
