2016/2017 Exhibition Calendar

September 15 – October 27, 2016


Samuel Davis: Lagerstätte

Sam is interested in the history of photography as it relates to both truth and also historical constructs in the form of evidence used to support historical facts. He creates playful scenarios using a pinhole camera to get his viewers to think about the scientific discoveries that took place around the same time that photography was being discovered.

Recent work by Jonathan Dedecker & Joshua Hunt

Jonathan creates imagery that revolves around framing the viewer as if they were a character within the image. The graphic quality of his work functions theatrically, detached, and is affected by our digitized culture, advertising, and the way we see ourselves within the world. Jonathan will be painting a special piece directly on the wall of the Lawton Gallery.

Joshua is interested in themes involving color theory, contemporary culture, the history of abstraction, and screen culture. He will feature both paintings, sculpture and video installations in the gallery. Hunt is originally from Green Bay and now lives in Milwaukee.
