Wingate’s first stage of work came together in 1980. Wingate showed with the nationally renown realist gallery, John Pence Gallery, and with the Payson Weisberg gallery in New York and with various other venues around the country.
He devoted himself to teaching in the 1990’s after his family and he moved from New York.
He oriented himself to country living, found a new voice (and frame system) and discovered his current imagery in 2014. The new work depends upon the arresting 50% line which functions as horizon line and as 50/50 actor.

The past is prologue. Everything from life-painting to artistic invention has made Wingate’s new image
