Guest curator Nicholas Frank
September 12th - October 3rd, 2013
Opening reception Thursday, September 12th, 4:30-6:30pm.
Introduction by guest curator, Nicholas Frank at 5pm
In the late 1990s, a compelling mixture of forces brought national attention to Milwaukee's art scene. Milwaukeeists 1996-2006 presents work by artists active during this period, in painting, photography, performance, film and video. Ephemera and documentary material from the period reveals the social ties that bound these personalities together and propelled their work. This exhibition explores the rise of a scene and its lasting impact. A catalogue will accompany this exhibition.
In association with this exhibit the Green Bay Film Society will be presenting a film and video program curated by Carl Bogner and Ben Balcom titled "Milwaukeeists Onscreen" on Wednesday, September 18th at 7:00pm in the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay. Please join us for a discussion after the screening.

Andy Warhol Photographs
October 10th - 31st
Opening reception Thursday, October 10th, 4:30-6:30pm
Introduction to the exhibition by Lawton curator, Dr. Stephen Perkins at 5:00pm
This exhibition features a selection of Polaroid and silver gelatin photographs that were part of a recent gift to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. Many of the Polaroid photographs are preliminary studies for silkscreen portraits and the black and white works include both portraits and other miscellaneous subjects that caught Warhol's attention. Both sets of works attest to Warhol's busy social & professional life as well as a curiosity about the world that he obsessively explored through the medium of photography.
Reception portrait event: A photo-portrait performance at the opening by Jason Houge and Kayla Bauer with portraits of gallery visitors becoming part of the exhibition.
