JAMES WINN - NEW PAINTINGS

Description: JAMES WINN: New Paintings March 7th - April 11th, 2015 Opening & Artist's Reception, Saturday, March 7th, 1-4 pm Gallery Hours: T-F 11-5, Sa 11-4 Tory Folliard Gallery is pleased to announce JAMES WINN: New Paintings. Opening with an Artist's Reception on Saturday, March 7th, the exhibition will include panoramic paintings of the Midwest and upstate New York as well as work from his Lotus series. James Winn is one of American's great contemporary landscape painters. He works within a venerable tradition to render serene fields and prairies, infusing vistas with a sublime stillness and luminosity. Inspired by the mid Nineteenth Century American art movement Luminism, his paintings are governed by the rules of form and content. The second is always determined by the first. By using a bird's eye panoramic view with an emphasis on the horizontal and strict tailoring of the formal elements, Winn captures the vastness and richness of the countryside. Moving beyond the quotidian, his invisible brushstrokes over the course of many thin "wet on wet" translucent layers express the constant, subtle change of light in the early evening sky. "It's those quiet moments of the mystery of the last light that represent my latest efforts: to present that moment when nature whispers that there is more in the world than what meets the eye." James Winn was born in Hannibal, Missouri in 1949. He studied at the Academy of Art in Chicago in the late 1960's and later received his MFA from Illinois State University where he studied with Midwestern master Harold Gregor. He has participated in numerous exhibitions since the early 1980's and has mounted solo shows in New York, Chicago and Milwaukee at the Tory Folliard Gallery. His paintings are in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Illinois State Museum, the Cedar Rapids Art Museum and many more museums and private collections throughout the Midwest.

Private Spaces, Public Authority

Description: Built in the 1880s, the home designed for Elizabeth Plankinton on Milwaukee's Grand Avenue followed the leading trends of that decade, appointed with ornament from America's leading suppliers of interior decoration. This was a decade when Aesthetic principles, encapsulated in the mantra "art for art's sake," reached their height in this country, having sailed across the Atlantic with Oscar Wilde, spread nationwide with his lecture tour that stressed the value of artful decoration. The focus of this decorative impulse was the home. Artists and designers, local and national, turned their attention to the seemingly prosaic: glass windows, ceramic tile, wallpapers, and even firebacks. The moral and physical loci of the aesthetic home was the Hearth, and it is at the center of this display of architectural salvage, an exhibition organized in partnership with the Milwaukee Housing Authority, which owns the collection. The exhibition presents this collection of woodwork, metalwork, ceramics and glass that broadly outlines Aesthetic era principles and designs. The objects come from local firms like Matthews Bros. and also internationally-known companies like J & J.G. Low Art Tile of Massachusetts, Belcher Mosaic Glass of New Jersey, and Hollins & Minton of Stoke-on-Trent, England. Tracing objects from their creation, to their private installation and subsequently to their deinstallation and public salvage, Villa Terrace, itself a repurposed lakeside mansion, explores the possibilities of repurposing old things for new ways of living.

Art For The Cause: French Posters from the First World War

Description: As in the United States, France solicited the support of its citizenry, both moral and financial, through large-format posters displayed in the windows of publicly- and privately-owned venues. Countries on both sides of the Atlantic commissioned leading artists and illustrators to provide the poster designs and drawings. Despite their common intentions, the French posters took on a more tragic character than their American counterparts, reflecting the devastation of the landscape and on the lives of soldiers and their families. The exhibition is an opportunity for CAVT Museums, until recently a body under the War Memorial Corporation umbrella, to reflect on the turbulence of warfare and its portrayal in original works by the likes of Francisque Poulbot and Steinlen. Gathered by Harriet Earling Fitch during the war years and after, the collection is a physical embodiment of an American philanthropist's longstanding relationship with a foreign country. Long before the entrance of the United States into the conflict, Harriet Fitch (later Thwaits Dake) organized and directed the Milwaukee chapter of the Fatherless Children of France and was instrumental in the founding of the Foster Mothers of America. Both organizations and Harriet Earling Fitch's philanthropic work focused on the care and support of the millions of children left fatherless by one of the deadliest conflicts in world history. For her efforts, she was awarded the Legion of Honor from the French government; her medal will be on display in the exhibition, along with archival news clippings that outline her achievements in her charitable and philanthropic work. About 20 posters, generously lent by the family of Thomas Van Alyea Jr., will go on display in the museum's great hall in this small exhibition held 100 years following World War I.
