In this new body of paintings, Fred Stonehouse returns to set his narrative scenes in more fully described landscapes — something that has been more or less absent in the artist’s work in recent years. As an element of these landscapes, Stonehouse’s abiding theme of water is present in the form of tears, sweat, and pools, but added to this is the motif of waterfalls. The sublime quality of the waterfalls adds a level of enchantment to Stonehouse’s already mythical imaginary spaces and suggests that his afflicted characters have finally reached the “Peaceable Kingdom.” However, there remains the comical suggestion that, even in paradise, there is a constant expectation of impending disaster.
Aquae Nguvu Gallery presents contemporary art with an emphasis on the importance of water in our environment. Aquae Nguvu Studio extends this theme to an examination of the elements, meditation, and dance.

Integration Healing is a holistic, bilingual, goal-oriented art therapy/yoga center and a leader in behavioral health services in Milwaukee. Part of the Whole is a group exhibition that invites viewers to explore their own response to the artist’s perspective on the complex relationships between oneself as an individual, with others, with nature. Interconnection is integral to all living things and interdependence is what allows species to thrive. In the same way, Part of the Whole investigates participants’ own creative self-expression as a path to wholeness.
McCaw Contemporary: three individuals, two generations, sixty years of combined, consistent critical acclaim and recognition. Dan, Danny, and John McCaw share a studio in Torrance, California. Here, the three collectively contribute to each’s individual practice through overlapping (but never duplicated) ideas, explorations, and techniques. Driven by relentless curiosity, the MCCAW vision explores dichotomies of the human experience, utilizing abstraction and romantic impressionism to create unique visions of familiar themes. Shown alongside one another in “PARADIGM”, the subtle yet distinct shifts in perspective among the three McCaws are evident, as ideas are shared, reinterpreted, and shared once again.
