Wendy is an aspiring contemporary artist whose adventures have taken her to galleries, art openings, and parties in Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Toronto. In Wendy, Master of Art, Walter
Scott’s incisively funny take on art school pretensions, explores also the politics of open relationships and polyamoury, performative activism, the precarity of a life in the arts, as well as the complexities of gender identity, sex work, drug use, and more.
At its heart, this is a book about the give and take of community – about someone learning how to navigate empathy and boundaries, and to respect herself. It is deeply funny and
endlessly relatable as it shows Wendy growing up from Millennial art party girl to successful artist, friend, teacher—and Master of Art.
