To celebrate reuniting friends and family, the David Barnett Gallery presents Together Again: A Selection of Works by Robert Richter, Reginald K. Gee, and Shona Stone Sculptors opening July 16, 2021. These artists are gallery staples and exemplary of their medium. We are excited to showcase a sense of collaboration and unity by bringing the artist and viewer together again. As we welcome the summer season, a sense of normalcy, and better days ahead, we have curated a colorful viewing experience that showcases popular, contemporary artists and we welcome you to attend!
This exhibition features over 50 works by more than 30 local artists. The League of Milwaukee Artists has been provided the opportunity to create new works—all with a working or industrial theme—specifically for this display. League members readily accepted this challenge, creating new paintings, sculptures, photos, and prints for inclusion in this outstanding show.
Join us on Saturday, July 17th at 5:30pm for a conversation with three artists featured in the MOWA | DTN exhibition Artists Without Borders! Rina Yoon, Nirmal Raja, and Jason S. Yi will discuss the relationship between art and place in their work as well as a central theme in the exhibition: how art transcends borders and reinforces shared human experiences. Hosted by MOWA’s Director of Collections, Education, and Research J Tyler Friedman. Tickets $10 per person on Eventbrite.
Join us for Gallery Night, July 16 from 5 to 9pm. Nykoli Koslow, primarily a painter, will extend their practice into the realm of Virtual Reality. As Nykoli paints virtually, everything they paint and see in the VR headset will be projected onto the wall next to them in real-time. Along with the live virtual painting, Nykoli’s working studio and gallery will be open. For Gallery Day, Saturday 11am to 3pm, Nykoli will have their studio open to talk about the themes behind their work. Come chat with the artist and learn about the Queer mythology behind the colorful abstracted paintings.
