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.

California Dreamin': Mark Adams and Frank Lobdell at Racine Art Museum

Description: Mark Adams (1925-2006) and Frank Lobdell (1921-2013) explored pattern and color. Drawing on his experience building images with large planes of color, Adams created realistic, color-infused compositions of everyday subjects. Lobdell sought to explore humanity in broader terms––utilizing a “vocabulary of archetypal themes and abstract symbols.” Although primarily a painter, Lobdell also produced lithographs, etchings, and monoprints. Both artists made their way to California where they spent the better part of their artistic careers.

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.

Waysides

Description: Waysides features works of art inspired by the idea, whether literally or metaphorically, of Wisconsin waysides. As this vibrant selection demonstrates, those common rest stops seen throughout the Wisconsin landscape can take many forms, from natural wonders to cityscapes, from unexpected roadside attractions to daily sightings on the commute to work. They are sites of memory and regional identity, personal experience and everyday life. Open to all artists who describe Wisconsin as ”home,” this call-for-entries exhibition drew responses from artists throughout the state and as far away as California and North Carolina.

Preservation Lab: Loy Bowlin's Holy Jewel Home

Description: Aiming to style himself as a singing “rhinestone cowboy” modeled after Glen Campbell’s song, Loy Bowlin of McComb, Mississippi, became the maker of a remarkable art environment. He embellished his small home with glitter, cut paper, magazine pictures, ornaments, and spangles, and people came from miles around to visit the “Holy Jewel Home,” and the Rhinestone Cowboy who lived there. The Conservation Lab will provide unprecedented access to our visitors as staff, preservation professionals, and historians put the house back together again in our galleries.
