April2013MilwaukeeArtsProject

Distance No Object is a gallery show curated by the Milwaukee Arts Project featuring work from 7 local artists. All work varies in form, content, style and medium. The exhibition not only displays the work of these artists as individuals but is also meant to highlight the ways in which the different art forms can come together, ultimately compliment each other and promote collaboration within the art community. It’s designed to show how an experience can derive from a single piece of art or a collection as a whole.

We’ll be kicking off the gallery show with an OPENING PARTY on Friday, April 12th from 6 – 9 PM.

Join us for an evening of drinks, delicious bakery, conversation and a wonderful collection of work from local artists. All artists will be in attendance and some work will be for sale.

Featuring work by:

EMILY LITJENS

PAUL KJELLAND

NEIL GRAVANDER

BRIAN Z

SHANNON HOGAN

DANIELLE BURREN

DAN KELLY

(paintings, photography, drawing, video installation and more…)

write up of current exhibition, Nicotine Bliss, by Local Trolley. Show runs at Jackpot Gallery through Nov.27th

Originally posted on Local Trolley:

I’ll never get used to the receding daylight suffered by fall changing to winter. The premature darkness did allow the new inhabitants of Truly Spoken’s old space to feature their fine vintage replacement framed window glass under studio lighting. There’s a market around here for that huh? That’s the kind ingenuity you expect to see these days unfortunately. Nice to see someone making lemonade out of it.

Keeping with its long-suffering reputation as the hotbed for everything an urban cross-roads should have, Riverwest proudly watched one of its more established artist venues, Jackpot Gallery, open a new show titled Nicotine Bliss. The Jackpot Gallery show opened November 9th and helped demonstrate the robust bandwidth Milwaukee’s art scene has achieved; The Portrait Society Gallery’s unveiling happened to be on the same night attracting a whole different crowd.
