The David Barnett Gallery presents “Photorealist Watercolors by Bruce McCombs”.This exhibit features over 30 watercolor paintings from the past 30 years.  At a distance the watercolors appear to be crisp photorealist renderings but upon closer inspection one will discover abstractions and mark making that reveal the artist’s process.  The artist works from original photographs which he reconstructs to create magnificent new compositions   His subjects include urban settings: like NYC and his hometown of Cleveland, architecture, planes, trains and vintage automobiles. McCombs has a way of turning our ordinary surroundings into spectacular displays and colorful reflections. Bruce McCombs received his BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and his MFA degree from Tulane University.  Most recently, his work has appeared in shows in Norway, Taiwan, Columbia, and the former Yugoslavia, among others. McCombs’s artwork is a part of many permanent collections both nationally and internationally including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, Washington D.C. and the National Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy presents new paintings and sculptures by Chicago native Rashid Johnson (b. 1977), who uses materials such as shea butter, black soap, and white ceramic tile to explore themes of race, identity, and escape. Fourteen works fill the exhibition space at the Milwaukee Art Museum—their impact as monumental as their size. Antoine’s Organ, the largest of the artist’s architectural grid installations ever shown in the United States, conceals a piano that musicians will perform at scheduled times. Forbes called Johnson “one of the four or five most important contemporary American artists.”

Milwaukeeans demanded & Milwaukee Food & City Tours delivered with the creation of a tour dedicated solely to highlighting the “custard capital of the world.” On the tour you will visit the shops & stands that have been institutions throughout Milwaukee’s historic communities. Guests will be treated to:
  • Butter burger and fries at an iconic MKE diner (you will have opportunity to put ketchup, mustard, relish on, if so desired)
  • 3 generously sized custard portions
  • round-trip transportation
  • guided tour fun
“Custard’s unique characteristics that make it creamier, softer and often times more flavorful than ice cream are what make it such an enjoyable and requested summer treat – especially with out-of-town tour guests,” said Theresa Nemetz, owner of Milwaukee Food & City Tours. “Milwaukee has so many fantastic custard vendors that the tour theme was an obvious addition for our company.” RECENT REVIEWS Custard Galore! "The custard places we went to were very generous and filling. I didn't need to eat supper after all of the custard. One place added a quarter of a hamburger and another added french fries. Both of these treats added some welcome saltiness to the custard. Our bus was comfortable and Jean, our leader, was informative, friendly, and enthusiastic all through our afternoon together. She made strangers feel welcome with each other. In addition to the delicious custard we had an afternoon of laughs and friendly companions." This tour was wonderful! "The serving size of custard at each place was a full single size so I was extremely full by the end of the tour! I'm a local but was introduced to at least one frozen custard place that I never knew existed and turned out to be my favorite of all of them. I would definitely recommend this tour for an afternoon of frozen custard tasting." The 2.5-hour bus tour departs from downtown Milwaukee and feature stops at four custard stands throughout the area while enjoying stories of Milwaukee en route. IMPORTANT NOTATIONS: Although minimal walking is required, there is still walking involved.

The Milwaukee Art Museum invites families to come and explore the innovative use of paper by contemporary artists, who use this humble material in simple ways—folding, weaving, cutting, and stacking—to make extraordinary works of art. Families can explore the possibilities of paper by creating a sculpture, a colorful weaving, and a mysterious scene in four different activity stations. The Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery brings art and creativity to kids and their families through family-friendly, hands-on activities.

Wisconsin artist Jessica Calderwood blends a background in metalsmithing, and a specific interest in enameling, with a desire to investigate the social and cultural dynamics of contemporary society. Her work of the last decade—jewelry, sculpture, and wall reliefs that often combine images of plants and humans—has emphasized the construction, development, and articulation of femininity and identity.

 

With her installation for RAM’s Windows on Fifth Gallery, Calderwood uses enamel, felt, polymer, and porcelain to magnify her exploration of gender. By including multiple figures and expanding her use of floral forms to more “aggressive and surprising” subject matter, she is able to address complex topics such as the relationship between the beautiful and the absurd, the powerful and the powerless, and the feminine and masculine.
