Panalure and Ex Fabula

Description: Milwaukee Band Panalure and Storytellers Ex Fabula Come Together Again in “Cabin Fever, Songs for a Cold Winter Night” at Anodyne Coffee.Milwaukee band Panalure and storytellers Ex Fabula originally partnered last winter under the theme of, Stories of Love, Lust and Murder. Hosted by Anodyne Coffee the show paired the original songs of Panalure with personal, true stories by members of Ex Fabula. The show was a big success and drew a near sell-out crowd and also a large listening audience from WUWM radio’s broadcast of the performance.According to Fred Ziegler, Panalure’s vocalist and main songwriter, “We really enjoyed working with Ex Fabula and the show brought together a new and very attentive audience. The audience was there to listen as everyone loves a story. With Cabin Fever we’re taking the integration of Ex Fabula’s stories and Panalure’s songs to the next level. The new batch of songs and stories in Cabin Fever are an invitation to come in from the cold of the Wisconsin winter and reflect on what it means to hunker down and go inside, both physically and emotionally.” According to Megan McGee curator and director of Ex Fabula, “Panalure’s new songs are a bit more acoustic and intimate, giving us the opportunity to intertwine their songs and our stories in a way that will be even more exciting for the audience. We had a lot of fun with the first show and clearly the audience loved it.”Panalure is veteran song-writer, vocalist and guitarist, Fred Ziegler with Nathan Kilen on drums, Michael De Boer and Jason Klagstad on guitars, Ken Hanson on bass and Kari Hoff on background vocals. https://www.exfabula.com/

How much do you love Carl von Marr?

Description: Two of Wisconsin’s most respected and lively artists—Tom Bamberger and Tom Uttech—will go head-to-head in a discussion over Carl von Marr’s masterpiece, The Flagellants. This pair of luminaries will air out their opposing opinions about this historical painting. Join us in the galleries to discover who finds it to be a masterfully-executed and meaningful allegory and who finds it to be an over-told, academic epic. Or perhaps something in between. In celebration of Carl von Marr’s February 14 birthday and in recognition of the museum’s founding legacy, this Carl von Marr-inspired afternoon is a great outing for Valentine’s Day weekend. Join us for what is sure to be a rapturous debate followed by birthday cake! Special thanks to the Melitta S. and Joan M. Pick Charitable Trust for the ongoing support of MOWA.

We Love Lasers Buy One Get One

Description: It's almost Valentine's Day and love is in the air. It's that time of year you prove to that special someone how much you care. Well, we want to prove how much we care about our customers and just how much we love lasers. That's why February 10-12 and 14th all of our sessions are Buy One Get One. Skip the chocolates and postpone the date night at the restaurant for a few hours. Everyone knows the couple that slays together stays together. Don't have a date? That's just fine, too. Come in and shoot at the happy couples! This Valentine's week at CMP Tactical everyone wins. In addition to Buy One Get One sessions, we'll also be hosting contests to give away FREE sessions throughout the week on our Facebook page. Just look for one of our terrible laser tag themed valentine card posts and tag someone in the comments, share, or like! We'll be posting those all week, so stay tuned at www.facebook.com/cmptactical Normal cost is $29.95 per person for an hour and a half experience, which includes gear up, briefing, and about 5-8 mission based games. During this promotion two players can play for the price of one or a single player can play two different sessions in a row. Same day only. Note: Saturday the 13th is NOT included in this promotion. CMP Tactical Lazer Tag: We offer a new evolution of laser tag featuring high tech realistic simulated weapons and objective based gameplay. We don't have plastic phasers or silly glow in the dark arenas. We feature all metal rifles and realistic battlefields. Our game is much closer to a modern day video game than the laser tag that might come to mind. We call it tactical laser tag, but even that doesn't do the excitement and adrenaline justice. You'll have to come in and try it out to really experience the thrill. In addition to walk-in play, we specialize in birthdays, bachelor parties, corporate team building, youth group events, and can handle groups large and small.

Carol Summers Woodcuts

Description: The David Barnett Gallery presents Carol Summers Woodcuts. The opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, January 22, 2016 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, January 23, 2016 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E. State St. at Prospect Ave. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Carol Summers is internationally recognized for his revolutionary woodcut printmaking process. Born in 1925 in Kingston, NY, Carol Summers is often described as the best printmaker in the world. The artist is fascinated with the landscape and its spectacular changes of season, its regal mountains and seas. Over the years he has developed a process and style that is both innovative and readily recognizable. His art is known for saturated fields of bold color, semi-abstract treatment of landscapes from around the world and a luminescent quality achieved through a printmaking process he invented. Summers has hand-pulled approximately 245 woodcuts in editions that have typically run from 25 to 100 in number. His talent was both inherited and learned. Carol Summers has been featured in Architectural Digest and his work can be found in nearly every major museum in the world. He is represented in virtually every museum’s contemporary print collection in the United States. Summers has worked as an artist throughout the second half of the 20th century and into the first years of the 21st century, outliving most of his mid-century modernist peers. Initially trained as a painter, Summers was drawn to color woodcuts around 1950 and it became his specialty thereafter. From 1948 to 1951, Carol Summers trained in the classical fine and studio arts at Bard College and at the Art Students League of New York. He studied painting with Steven Hirsh and printmaking with Louis Schanker. He admired the shapes and colors favored by early modernists Paul Klee (Swiss-German: 1879-1940) and Matt Phillips (American: b.1927). After graduating, Summers quit working as a part-time carpenter and cabinetmaker (which had supported his schooling and living expenses) to focus fulltime on art. Along with fellow artist Leonard Baskin, Summers pioneered what is now referred to as the “monumental” woodcut. This term was coined in the early 1960s to denote woodcuts that were dramatically bigger than those previously created in earlier years, ones that were limited in size mostly by the size of small hand-presses. While Baskin chose figurative subject matter, serious in nature and rendered with thick, striated lines, Summers rendered much less somber images preferring to emphasize shape and color; his subject matter approached abstraction but was always firmly rooted in the landscape. In addition to working in this new, larger scale, Summers simultaneously refined a printmaking process which would eventually be called the “Carol Summers Method” or the “Carol Summers Technique”. Summers produces his woodcuts by hand, usually from one or more blocks of quarter-inch pine, using oil-based printing inks and porous mulberry papers. He is technically very proficient; the inks are thoroughly saturated onto the surface of the paper but they do not run into each other. The precision of the color inking in Constantine’s Dream in 1969 and Rainbow Glacier in 1970 has been referred to in various studio handbooks. Summers refers to his own printing technique as “rubbing”. In traditional woodcut printing, including the Japanese method, the ink is applied directly onto the block. However, by following his own method, Summers has avoided the mirror-reversed image of a conventional print and it has given him the control over the precise amount of ink that he wants on the paper. His highly inventive and unique process of spraying mineral spirits through a straw onto the printed woodcut gives the special look of a watercolor. A Fulbright Grant as well as Fellowships from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation and the Guggenheim Foundation followed, as did faculty positions at colleges and universities primarily in New York and Pennsylvania. Summers received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Bard College in 1979 and was selected by the United States Information Agency to spend a year conducting painting and printmaking workshops at universities throughout India. Since that original sabbatical, he has returned every year, spending four to eight weeks traveling throughout that country. In the 1990s, interspersed with these journeys to India have been additional treks to the back roads and high country areas of Mexico, Central America, Nepal, China and Japan. Travel to these exotic and faraway places had a profound influence on Summers’ art. Subject matter became more worldly and nonwestern as with From Humla to Dolpo, 1991 or A Former Life of Buddha, 1996, for example. Architectural images, such as The Pillars of Hercules, 1990 or The Raja’s Aviary, 1992 became more common. Still life images made a reappearance with Jungle Bouquet in 1997. The exhibit will run through April 9, 2016. The David Barnett Gallery provides professional art consultation, appraisals, restoration and conservation, framing, lighting, custom giclee printing, delivery, and installation services. The gallery’s Van Go mobile art service brings artwork to residences and offices for “on location” selection. Viewing hours at the David Barnett Gallery are 11:00am to 5:30pm Tuesday through Friday, 11:00am to 5:00pm Saturday, or by appointment. For further information, please call (414) 271-5058.

Genome: Unlocking Life's Code

Description: Explore the Science of You. Let’s get very small for a moment. Inside your cells is a surprisingly large and staggeringly important molecule called DNA. This molecule contains the code, the blueprint, the unique set of instructions for making you. In fact, DNA is the unique set of instructions for making every living thing on Earth. Every person’s DNA is slightly different. Every creature’s DNA is a little bit more different. How do we decode our DNA? What happens when we understand these instructions? Created by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the National Human Genome Research Institute, this 4,400 sq. ft. exhibit allows you to explore the secrets of the Human Genome. How does DNA work? How do our cells translate this code into Life? How is genome sequencing revolutionizing medicine? How does decoding the Human Genome help us understand ourselves and the natural world? Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code also allows you to explore our shared human ancestry through time, the history of DNA research, and the common threads that connect all life on Earth. This amazing exhibit is perfect for the entire family. Join us for an incredible, immersive journey into DNA! In partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Jewish Museum Milwaukee's Arthur Szyk: The Art of Illumination Exhibit

Description: “Arthur Szyk: The Art of Illumination” — an original-curated exhibit — demonstrates the capacity of art to make a difference by encouraging engagement and discussion of social, political, religious and cultural issues. Szyk is considered the greatest 20th Century illuminator working in the style of 16th Century miniature art painters and one of the leading political cartoonists of the 20th Century. The exhibit explores his career as a foremost political caricaturist in America during World War ll when he emerged as a figure of provocation and an advocate for liberty vilifying the Axis Powers. Szyk’s work had a common theme: freedom, not tyranny; justice, not oppression. His work helped persuade public opinion for the United States to join the conflict in Europe. Current rhetoric about Muslims, Syrians and Hispanics are eerily reminiscent of the propaganda against Jews in Szyk’s time. Special programs and lectures will allow the public in-depth opportunities to engage in these timeless ideas; learn more at JewishMuseumMilwaukee.org/Events or call 414.390.5730. People of all backgrounds are highly encouraged to attend the exhibit.

Photography and the Scientific Spirit

Description: This exhibition presents the work of seventeen artists exemplifying the qualities of invention and imagination Walt Whitman described as the “scientific spirit.” This exploration of the relationship between photography and science begins with works by Berenice Abbott (1898–1991), who believed the medium was uniquely qualified to unite art with science. Abbott not only created striking images of scientific exploration through laboratory experiments, she also applied her art and imagination to the invention of new equipment. Many of the artists in the exhibition cite Abbott’s work as influencing their own.

As with all of our tours, we’ll find our way through historic neighborhoods and point out interesting city factoids and landmarks along the way. And, save room for dessert - our excursion concludes with a divine scoop of gelato! The 3-hour bus tour will depart from West Milwaukee and feature substantial portions. Pizza slices, dessert and round-trip transportation are included in the $55 per person price. Celebrating our 9th anniversary, we are Milwaukee's premier, original and award-winning tour company. Our tours provide the ideal combination of food, culture and history too!
