Wesley L. Page, FAIA: Artist of the Possible
We are pleased to share the news that Hanbury’s Wesley Page has been elevated to fellowship in the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Wesley is being recognized specifically for his extraordinary talents using traditional media drawing practices to advance the profession and the understanding and appreciation for architecture and design. Also recognized is Page's active role nationally as an advocate for drawing as a still critical design tool in the digital age.
The AIA College of Fellows is the AIA’s highest membership honor, bestowed after rigorous judging upon members whose exceptional work and contributions have advanced the profession and its service to society. Roughly three percent of the AIA’s 90,000 members have this distinction.
“There are few that are as gifted as Wes in the ability to capture the spirit of place through a sketch,” says Hanbury CEO and President, Jane Cady Wright. “Wesley is a world-class illustrator. Wesley's artistic hand has created profound momentum with college presidents, trustees, faculty, donors and designers, giving birth to their visions long before the shovel hit the ground.”
Wesley’s original sketches have helped stimulate the imagination and understanding of our clients, their constituents and stakeholders, and other members of the large teams involved in transforming physical environments. “The imprint of Wesley's masterful hand is one of the hallmarks of our firm,” Wright says. “His contributions have played a significant role in our development.”
Wesley has earned international attention as a perspectivist. He is a consistent winner in the juried competitions sponsored by the American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI), and his work has toured the world with exhibits of architectural drawings and paintings.
