Francis Annan Affotey Exhibit in Gallerie M

Description: Francis Annan Affotey - Accra to Milwaukee: How new environments shape artistry June 23 through August 10, 2016 Moving to Milwaukee, Wisconsin from Accra, Ghana was Francis Annan’s first journey outside of West Africa. This exhibition will allow the viewer to travel with Annan over the past 7 years and see how each of his experiences gradually transformed his techniques, colors, subjects, and motifs. His paintings will allow the viewer to question how art is tool to describe the world around us and to help us grasp a sense of place. ARTIST BIOGRAPHY Francis Annan Affotey was born and raised in Accra, Ghana. After graduating from Ghanatta College of Art and Design, Annan joined the Revolution Art Organization and displayed his work in several group and solo exhibitions in Accra. In 2013, Annan helped found the African Young Artist Organization (AYAO), an organization dedicated to supporting African youth in the arts through programs and exhibitions. Annan currently lives with his wife in downtown Milwaukee. ARTIST STATMENT As a child in Accra, “poses” were part of daily life. I was surrounded by women peeling oranges, carrying head pans, and braiding hair. Children played in the dirt, invented games, took care of siblings, and cooked with their mothers. I did not realize at the time how much these images or poses had a lasting impression in my mind; little did I know how important they were in revealing the “secret” joys of which millions of Africans are familiar yet to which much of the world remains blind. I use poses to expose the paradox of everyday African life. By depicting a pose as semi-abstract, my paintings highlight both the mundane and the joy in everyday African life. Images that seem pitiful or sad to the outside world have much deeper implications. A woman feeding her family suggests pride, not inferiority. A child playing in a slum suggests friendship and imagination, not hopelessness. My artwork is meant to challenge those who only see Africa through the lenses of conflict, poverty, and corruption. Since coming to Milwaukee, my work has explored stories with more universal themes, as I connect my past with my present. Milwaukee introduced me to many new cultures with surprising differences and even more surprising similarities to those back home. The similarities and differences have led me to use new media, new techniques, and new concepts.

Milwaukee's Industrial Landscapes: Paintings by Michael Newhall

Description: The Grohmann Museum is well known for its outstanding collection of industrial landscape paintings, may from centers of European industry like Germany's Ruhr River Valley. However, more regional and local depictions are less common. This exhibition provides an opportunity to highlight Milwaukee's industry and changing views of the city in post-industrial situations. The works selected for this exhibition-many executed in Michael Newhall's trademark Regionalist/Ashcan style-capture engaging scenes of Milwaukee's urban landscape and provide the viewer an opportunity to reflect on the city's recent past. Newhall has taught art and Buddhism at Naropa University, the Art Institute of Chicago, Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and other universities in the Midwest. His works can be found in a number of public and private collections.

Plein Air Paintings of Richard Lorenz

Description: Plein Air Paintings of Richard Lorenz June 8 – August 28, 2016 This exhibition of an historic, private collection of plein air paintings coincides with Cedarburg’s popular annual Plein Air Event in June. German-born Richard Lorenz came to Milwaukee in 1886 as an equestrian painter for the panorama painting industry. Starting in 1887 Lorenz travelled on horseback to remote areas of the American West to paint the quickly changing landscape and culture. The spontaneous and direct outdoor paintings were studies for some of Lorenz’s large scale studio paintings of Western subjects which achieved national attention similar to those of Frederick Remington. The opening reception is June 10, 5:30 – 8:30pm, and Tom Lidtke will give a short presentation about his curated show during the reception after 6pm. Regular museum hours are Wednesdays through Saturday, 10 – 4pm and Sundays noon to 4pm.

Paintings By Hsin-Lin Chiao

Description: The David Barnett Gallery presents Contemporary Chinese Artist, Hsin-Lin Chiao. The opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, April 15, 2016 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, April 16, 2016 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E. State St. at Prospect Ave. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Emerging artist, Hsin-Lin Chiao, will feature her paintings in the exhibition titled "In Loving Memory of Mom”. Her paintings form an intimate expression of life, revealing its beauty, complexities, and contradictions. Hsin-Lin’s objective is to articulate the intricacies of everyday life, looking beneath the surface of norms and beliefs, while always remaining connected to nature. She works with a combination of acrylic, colored pencils, and molding paste on canvas to realize this objective. Hsin-Lin's approach to art is organic and intimate, as it arises out of her interactions with books, music, and people. But most titles such as "Faith," "Prayer," "Draw Me Closer to You," "Love That Lasts," and "Passion of the Christ" are inspired by God through events in her life, events that brought her closer to her Heavenly Father. God was faithful over the years, and Hsin-Lin's relationship with Him helped her to start a new life and to reap the very best of it. Her art has been the core of this new beginning, and all of her feelings and emotions of her past experiences are deeply exposed through her work. Hsin-Lin says, "I feel as if God sends designs right through my mind and into my fingertips." Besides painting, Hsin-Lin enjoys interior design, fashion, ballet, and playing the violin. She is a woman of great strength, integrity, courage, and talent. Her life and character expressed through her art is an enormous blessing to the world. The exhibit will run through July 16, 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.

Living Rooms

Description: Ideas of the home, or notions of domestic life, are central to the artistic investigations featured in this exhibition. Milwaukee artists Shana McCaw and Brent Budsberg have collaborated since 2001 in sculpture, performance, and site-specific installation, and most recently with photography and video. A nineteenth-century Midwestern farmhouse, depicted in unlikely or impossible scenarios, has emerged as a central character in their work. Through it, they examine the psychology of place, ancestral memory, and the passage of time. Michelle Grabner, also Milwaukee-based, explores ideals of orderliness and routine through patterns she identifies in her domestic environment. She translates the compositions found in crocheted blankets, paper toweling, and gingham fabric into abstract paintings and larger-than-life sculptural works. Sheboygan-based Beth Lipman explores the symbolism of seventeenth-century still-life paintings through sculpture and photography. Included in this exhibition are glass re-creations of a life-size crib and cradle embodying the fragility of life. Image: Brent Budsberg and Shana McCaw, Reaction, 2009; mixed media; 36 x 36 x 36 in.

Dreamscapes

Description: Jessica Calderwood (WI) and Debbie Kupinsky (WI) are alumnae of the Arts Center's renowned Arts/Industry residency program. Rooted firmly in Wisconsin, Arts/Industry annually reserves at least one residency for an artist from the state. Dreamscapes contextualizes work made during Calderwood and Kupinsky's residencies within their larger studio practice by exhibiting a selection of both bodies of work. Both artists combine figural and natural elements to create hybrid forms that blur the lines between authenticity and artifice, animals and humans, flora and fauna.

Super Natural

Description: Magic realism developed as an art movement in the years after World War I when many American artists began to explore the interconnections between the material and the imagined. Encompassing a range of subtly different concepts, magic realism shares an acceptance of the supernatural in an otherwise rational world. Using magic realism as a starting point, this exhibition features 24 Wisconsin artists working in a wide variety of techniques and media, including print, painting, video, sculpture, and fiber-based works.

Steve Feren: The Incredible Beingness of Light

Description: Concrete sculptures are found throughout the state at Fred Smith’s Wisconsin Concrete Park in the Northwoods, Mary Nohl’s house in Fox Point, and Nick Engelbert’s Grandview in Hollandale to name a few. Over the past few years, Madison-based artist Steve Feren has made several creatures of glass and concrete for a series titled The Incredible Beingness of Light.
