In-person events include ticketed private tours of the art collection and exhibitions on view with Saint Kate’s Curator on Friday night, January 15th at 5pm, and a free art tour at 1pm on Saturday, January 16th. Hope to see you there!
44 color lithographs of paintings by surrealist Rene Magritte are on display at the David Barnett Gallery for the first time. This is the first Rene Magritte show to ever be held in Wisconsin. For each lithograph, its printing plate was hand drawn, including up to 20 individual colors per print. The plates were destroyed after the printing was completed. We have new artworks at the gallery; including but not limited to glassworks by Nemtoi, drawings from Hannah de Rothschild and Elise Rise, watercolors by Julia Taylor, color aquatints by Georges Rouault, and paintings from Alayna Rose and Daniel Klewer.
Nykoli Koslow, primarily a painter, will extend their practice into the realm of Virtual Reality. On January 15th Nykoli will create a virtual painting for viewers to watch using google Tilt Brush. 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. Viewers can also watch from their homes as the virtual painting will be streamed on Facebook live. Along with live virtual painting, Nykoli’s larger oil paintings will continue to be featured. Small paintings will be available for purchase.
