Debra Brehmer is a writer and art historian who runs a contemporary gallery called Portrait Society in Milwaukee. Brehmer teaches at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and she is especially interested in how portraits convey meaning.

Lon Michels has been painting from life for over 45 years, and uses color and pattern to capture the essence or personality of each individual or subject he paints. Michels recently received his MFA from UW-Madison and was nominated for a Joan Mitchell grant in 2007.

Photographer James Brozek and Debra Brehmer of the Portrait Society Gallery in Milwaukee joined forces to bring Livija Patikne’s photographs to the light. Fifteen years ago, Brozek was given a box of slides by an apartment manager who was closing out the residence of an elderly tenant.
