Stem and Staunch

Janelle Gramling is a Milwaukee-based sculptor who challenges the boundaries between fine art and functional home goods — with a playful and surprising aesthetic. Ceramic being her main medium, she often mixes other materials such as metal, wood and fiber within her sculptures. On Gallery Night, she will be showing a new collection of wine bottle stoppers. These one-of-a-kind pieces are both functional as well as elegantly strange.

To Know the Dark

David Niec paints the moon and the night sky. His sensitive observations become thresholds of time and space. Both liminal and scientifically precise, Niec’s paintings and drawings invite contemplation, positioning the viewer in a vast unknown. This body of work was created over the past two years and supported by an Adolph Gottlieb Foundation grant. In an adjacent exhibition, Milwaukee based artist, curator and owner of Green Gallery, John Riepenhoff, shares a related body of work about the night sky. The New York Times recently stated that Riepenhoff depicts the sky’s “…emptiness, its paradoxical density, the weird spiritual disquiet you may experience when staring into something infinite and intangible.”
