Jan Serr: A Painter’s Photographs of India

With a decades-long career exhibiting both nationally and internationally, Milwaukee-based painter and printmaker Jan Serr presents a new body of work: her photographs. An avid scholar of India and its cultural, political, religious, and artistic histories, Serr traveled to Northern India in 2009 and later Southern India in 2016. The images featured at The Warehouse depict her stays in India and show painterly passages of line, color, and light through photography. While a shift in medium by an artist well established in her career, these photographs reflect Serr’s confident, trained, and inquisitive eye.

Exhibition through December 13, 2019
Friday Gallery Night: 5-9pm with mini tours by Jan Serr at 6pm and 7pm
Saturday Gallery Day: 10am-2pm with an Artist Talk by Jan Serr at 1pm

Discarded

“Discarded” demonstrates the continual lifecycle of objects in the world as two Chicago-based artists, Marvin Tate and Spencer Hutchinson, execute masterful up-cycled assemblages from tossed, lost, and gentrified rubbish saturating Chicago’s urban landscape. Tate recovers shoe insert refuse, coalescing them into bountiful displays, reminiscent of floral bouquets or Cameroonian Juju Hats. Hutchinson amasses remnant articles abandoned along the streets and gutters of Chicago, embedding them into conceptual assemblages that force the viewer to interject meaning or deal with the lack thereof. Come behold the impressive repurposing of life’s most mundane, ditched objects into spectacular visual compositions.

St. John’s on the Lake

Wolfgang Klein: Freedom of Expression

Like many Wisconsin artists before him, Wolfgang Klein was born in Germany and immigrated to Milwaukee. A student of German Expressionist master Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Klein was an educator in Berlin before relocating to the United States in 1954. Working in advertising, he taught for many years at Alverno College, Marquette University and the YWCA. Klein’s woodblck prints reveal both Kirchner’s stylistic influence and Klein’s own deep connection to Milwaukee as the longer he lived in the United States the more his work revealed an inspired artist appreciative of the urban and natural landscapes that were so different from those he knew in Europe.

Exhibition Dates: October 17 – January 17
Event Hours: Friday: 5-9pm  |  Saturday 10-5pm
1800 N. Prospect Ave.  |   414-831-6875
