Solo shows by two artists exploring memory and identity through narrative experiences.
John Craig's prints explore perception, history and narrative. Valerie Mangion's paintings explore the nocturnal life of animals.
Gwen Avant's expressive paintings communicate acceptance, beauty, and peace. Gregory Klassen will explore natural processes, such as gravity and evaporation.
Tom Berenz's current paintings combine recognizable bits and pieces from ordinary life with swaths of color and pattern. Shane McAdams introduces jarringly synthetic elements in to classic landscape scenes.
LOGJAM features sculpture and prints by three artists for whom wood--from saplings and underbrush to massive old-growth stumps--is a primary material.
GONE WILD: David McLimans will include a selection of the artist’s exquisite collages, gently humorous sculptures made with found materials, and sophisticated editorial illustrations.
Waterways features three Wisconsin artists--Sarah FitzSimons (Madison), Marsha McDonald (Milwaukee), and John Miller (Madison)--whose work investigates the essential nature of water.
Graham Yeager's sculptures in steel and wood are finished with a palette of strong, vibrant color. Tyler Robbins's photomontages are a fresh offshoot of his photographic series focused on the suburbs' landscapes, rituals, and citizenry.
Donald Friedlich has developed an international reputation for his elegant, innovative jewelry in glass and gold. Dianne Soffa's abstract color field paintings in encaustic, oil, and acrylic have thick, luscious surfaces, luminous color, and an emotional core.
