Gallery Night at the Grohmann Museum

Gallery Night at the Grohmann Museum

Friday, January 20, 2017
Grohmann Museum - Man at Work Art Collection
January 20, 2017 at 5:00 PM (Fri)

David Plowden states that “the architecture of steelmaking is like no other.  Nowhere can you find this massiveness, drama, spectacle, and danger but in a steel mill.”  Between 1962 and 1985, Plowden sought to capture the majesty of the steel industry while at the same time documenting the demise of the industry as we knew it.

This exhibition allows for a re-examination of Plowden’s steel portfolio, including many photos printed specifically for this purpose.  Featuring more than 100 of his finest photographs, Steel places the viewer at the point where shovel meets dirt in the mining process and ends in the same soil surrounding these long-abandoned mills.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach – and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. Roald Dahl’s story comes hilariously to life in this musical of epic proportions.

The David Barnett Gallery presents our “50th Anniversary Exhibition”. The opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, January 20, 2017 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E. State St. at Prospect Ave. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The David Barnett Gallery has supported and encouraged local artists since the founding of the gallery in 1966.  The mission of the gallery was to show graduate student’s work from local colleges due to the minimal opportunities to show artwork in Milwaukee at the time.  In 1968 the gallery began showing world renowned established masters such as Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Chagall, Miro, Dali, Kandinsky and Pissarro.  The profits from these masters work enabled the gallery to fund the promotion and exhibition of unknown and emerging artists throughout Wisconsin. David Barnett on the creative process behind art: “Anything done with a high level of innovation can be perceived as an art, and the creative process behind all of these art forms is the same.  An artist painting, a musician playing, a ballerina dancing, a quarterback throwing, a chef cooking, a lawyer negotiating, a scientist discovering – it’s all the same.  The creative process is what drives me; it’s the artists that drive me crazy.  I know first-hand because I’m an artist myself.” This exhibition will feature artists exhibited since the inception of the gallery in 1966.  Artists include Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, Miro, Avery, Van Dongen, Renoir, Rembrandt, Pissarro, Weisbuch, Masson, Dali, John Steuart Curry, Summers, Gutierrez, Rosenquist, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Kandinsky, Marini, Degas, Giacometti, Karen Hoepting, Katherine Hartley, Leonard Baskin, Currier & Ives, Homer and Altman. Wisconsin artists featured include Joseph Rozman, Reginald K. Gee, Alayna Rose, Karin Krohne Kaufman, Dan Muller, David Barnett, Joan Dvorsky, Tom Ferderbar, Francesco Spicuzza, Sylvia Spicuzza and Alicia Czechowski. Old Masters, African, Latin American, Indonesian, New Guinea and Haitian art will also be represented. Through April 15, 2017. 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.

The Milwaukee Art Museum presents Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s, featuring set designs, drawings, photographs, posters, and more from masterworks of German Expressionist cinema. Influenced by the highly charged emotionalism of the Expressionist movement, German filmmakers employed dramatic lighting, off-kilter framing, strong shadows, and distorted perspectives to express the unease and discomfort of the period following World War I. These works served as a catalyst for science fiction and horror and continue to inspire contemporary filmmakers, including Tim Burton and Martin Scorsese.   Organized by La Cinémathèque française, in Paris, this exhibition includes film clips from more than 20 films, offering a window to an exceptionally groundbreaking period in German film history.

David Plowden states that “the architecture of steelmaking is like no other.  Nowhere can you find this massiveness, drama, spectacle, and danger but in a steel mill.”  Between 1962 and 1985, Plowden sought to capture the majesty of the steel industry while at the same time documenting the demise of the industry as we knew it.

This exhibition allows for a re-examination of Plowden’s steel portfolio, including many photos printed specifically for this purpose.  Featuring more than 100 of his finest photographs, Steel places the viewer at the point where shovel meets dirt in the mining process and ends in the same soil surrounding these long-abandoned mills.

The Milwaukee Art Museum’s newest exhibition highlights one of the most varied and inventive painters of the nineteenth century, Martin Johnson Heade. Heade devoted equal time to a great many subjects, from powerful canvases of thunderstorms at sea to exquisite small studies of South American hummingbirds, portraits to still lifes. Presenting works drawn exclusively from the celebrated Heade collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the exhibition offers a retrospective overview of this important American artist’s career.
