Burgundy Winemaker Dinner: Domaine Faiveley

Description: There are few Burgundy firms that possess the vineyards, the talent, history and family of Domaine Faiveley. Founded in 1825 by Pierre Faiveley, the Domaine has seen seven generations at the helm. The Domaine now owns 10 hectares of Grand Crus vineyards, and 25 hectares of Premier Cru. In typical Burgundy fashion, the plots are small and very fragmented. Export Director Vincent Avenel will speak on the Domaine's history as we sample their world class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Enjoy a five-course dinner with four wines from Lake Park Bistro's Chef de Cuisine Miles Borghgraef. A very special evening! Burgundy Winemaker Dinner: Domaine Faiveley Lake Park Bistro Tuesday, April 21 at 6:30 p.m. Five courses, four wines $95 per person, plus tax and gratuity Reservations: (414) 962-6300 https://www.bartolottas.com/events/burgundy-winemaker-dinner-faiveley-at-lake-park-bistro

JBF Consignment Sale - Milwaukee County

Description: Just Between Friends (JBF), the leading children's and maternity consignment event, is announcing a special presale for military families, first-time moms, and teachers on Saturday, April 18, from 6-9 pm, a day ahead of the regular JBF sale days, April 19-25, at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at Wisconsin State Fair Park. Presale attendees should register at Eventbrite.com or go to jbfsale.com for details. JBF's Milwaukee County regular sale will be open to the public Sunday through Wednesday, April 19-22, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Thursday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday, April 24, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, April 25, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Sunday, a $3 admission fee will be charged, and on the remaining sale days, admission is free. JBF sales offer "gently loved" and "new" children's clothing in sizes 0 to 18, maternity clothes in sizes XS to plus, children's shoes in sizes infant to 6, as well as toys, board and electronic games, DVDs, and books. All clothing items and shoes are inspected before the event for current fashion, stains, and tears, and strollers are checked for safety and recall warnings. Items will be organized like a children's store, where everything is divided by gender and size. Each event features new and different items. The spring sales will feature spring and summer clothing items. As a special service to area families, the JBF Milwaukee County sale will help people with Graco Alano, Passage, or Spree strollers and/or travel systems that were recalled in 2010 because of potential danger. Persons with any of those models may exchange each for a $25.00 JBF gift card to use at the JBF sale event. JBF will be returning the strollers to Graco, and they will be destroyed. Melissa Monsoor, co-organizer of the Milwaukee County sale pointed out, "We will have everything from maternity clothing to wipe warmers to the latest fashions from Justice or Gymboree to Fisher Price and Little Tikes playground toys, along with other high interest toys and children's electronics." JBF sales utilize an exclusive, free barcode system for tagging items, tracking daily sales, and managing an accurate, itemized list of any unsold, fashionable, and desirable items that are then donated on behalf of JBF and the consignors to organizations, including the Salvation Army, for area families in need. Just Between Friends serves more than 260,000 American families in 22 states and provides an opportunity for families to recycle their kids' clothing and toys. Wisconsin currently offers six JBF sales events with each independently operated. The Salvation Army is an international movement located in over 100 countries around the world. It has been serving communities in the Greater Milwaukee area for over 100 years. http://www.milwaukeecounty.jbfsale.com https://www.facebook.com/jbfmilwaukee

All Shook Up

Description: Join us for The Fireside premiere of this rocking, rollicking musical comedy featuring the songs of the King of rock and roll - Elvis Presley. No tight pants, no kissing and no loud music. Those are the rules in one small Midwestern 1950's town. But then a stranger comes to town- a rebellious, guitar-playing, hip swiveling roustabout (who bears a striking resemblance to the King himself). All at once everything changes - young love blooms, unspoken dreams begin to come true, and the once quiet little town is turned upside down in this hilarious, tuneful, high-stepping, award-winning Broadway romp featuring laughs, romance, thrilling dances, and a host of your favorite Presley classics such as "Jailhouse Rock," "Hound Dog," "Heartbreak Hotel," "Blue Suede Shoes," "Don't Be Cruel," "Burning Love" and many, many more!

Kiki's Paris

Description: The David Barnett Gallery presents Kiki's Paris, an exhibition inspired by the book about the famous Parisian model who worked and lived in Paris from 1900-1930 when Paris was the center of the art world. An opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, April 17, 2015 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, April 18, 2015 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E. State St. at Prospect Ave. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. KIKI'S PARIS re-creates the experience of being part of what Marcel Duchamp called "the first really international colony of artists we ever had". The quarter mile area on the Left Bank around the intersection of Boulevard du Montparnasse and Boulevard Raspail offered none of the traditional tourist attractions of Paris; what brought a generation of artists, writers and pleasure-seekers to the terraces of the Montparnasse cafes was the promise of personal freedom and self-fulfillment. At the center of Montparnasse life was Kiki. In Ernest Hemingway's words "She was very wonderful to look at. Having a fine fact to start with she had made of it a work of art. She had a wonderfully beautiful body and a fine voice and she certainly dominated that era of Montparnasse more than Queen Victoria ever dominated the Victoria era". Kiki, indeed, was the queen of the artists' quarter that was the dream and destination of millions of people in the 1920's; and she has come to symbolize everything Montparnasse had to offer. Tracing its beginning to a hill, Montparnasse, from which Sorbonne students declaimed their poetry, Montparnasse in the 19th century attracted academic artists and their students. From 1900 to 1930, Montparnasse was the center of artistic life for the whole world. The artists, writers and composers who were there - Apollinaire, Leger, Miro, Cocteau, Joyce, Modigliani, Brancusi, Pound, Satie, Calder, Duchamp, Matisse, Hemingway, Mondrian, Man Ray, Pascin, Picasso, Soutine, Stravinsky, Stein and countless others have created modern culture as we know it. For KIKI'S PARIS, the authors have chosen from thousands of photographs of the time and interviewed artists and models who were in Montparnasse in the 1920's. Many of the photographs in the book are by well-known artists, among them Man Ray, Berenice Abbott, Andre Kertesz and Jean Cocteau; others have never been published before or have not been seen since the twenties. The text is concise and revealing, emphasizing accuracy and adherence to fact. KIKI'S PARIS is a major contribution to the social and art history of the period. Its unique combination of photographs and text conveys the reality and flavor of our century's greatest experiment in freedom. Artists include: Man Ray, Miro, Matisse, Max Ernst, Mucha, Bonnard, Manet, Tanguy, Pissarro, Calder, Villon, Picasso, Gauguin, Hermine David, Kees Van Dongen, Derain, Marcel Duchamp, Delacroix, Renoir, Masson and Chagall. The exhibit will run through July 18, 2015. 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.

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.
