Jonathan Wilde & Ann Orlowski: Vernacular Architecture
Jonathan Wilde is known for his keen and poetic observation of the Wisconsin landscape. For this show he pairs with Ann Orlowski, known for her urban architectural paintings, to focus on buildings which reflect the local rural traditions. Wilde's bucolic paintings will pose an interesting contrast to Orlowski's take on ubiquitous contemporary structures.
Boxes hold some of the most prized human possessions, but this humble container can also be a treasure in its own right. This group show will offer an impressive array of media and techniques by various artists who will explore the beauty of this simple but iconic form.
In the Cooler: Reliquary: Don Kauss
Don Kauss, a local Wisconsin artist, joins us in the cooler with a selection of sculptural assemblage work that incorporates animal bones and neon. Kauss's intense conglomerations explore the artist's passion for the earth and the natural order of things with a penchant for the visceral. His work both intrigues the mind and gives beauty to the grimmer of life’s aspects.
