Super excited to finally have the details for the show in Milwaukee opening January 27 (of which the piece above will be a part!):
UWM Union Art Gallery
Friday, January 27 – Friday, February 24
Opening Reception: Friday, January 27, 5-8pm
Artist Talk: with Lisa Congdon & Liz Miller, January 27, 7pm
Deedee Cheriel, Lisa Congdon, Liz Miller, and Eduardo J. Villanueva are four nationally known artists whose work includes an array of media—painting, drawing, sculpture, collage, installation, and book arts. Bold color and sharp angles, are mixed together, transferring the familiar into an exciting imaginative space By experimenting with the physical properties of their chosen media, these artists recontextualize simplified shapes, signs and symbols from different historical and contemporary imagery to create new imaginative environment. By taking chances with these materials and marrying them to compelling narratives, they have created works that are concretely tangible, indicative of soaring imaginations, and in many cases have the quality of being beautifully mysterious.
As you can see, I am giving an artist talk at 7 on the 27th and will be there for the entire opening. If you close by, please come!
