WAUKESHA, WIS.— A juried regional exhibit featuring artists from southeastern Wisconsin opened Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, in the Art & Cultures Gallery at Alverno College, 3401 S. 39th St., Milwaukee. Amy Cropper and Pacia Sallomi, both associate professors of art at Carroll University, were accepted in the exhibition by juror Molly Evans, the manager and curator for the Union Art Gallery at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Cropper had two mixed media on wood pieces accepted. “Deer Centered” and “Two Deer” are inspired by the Midwestern landscape, exploring the beauty and confinement agriculture imposes on the land.
Sallomi’s painting, “A Desert Path,” is from her Roundabouts series, which is inspired by ideas of journeys, contemplation, Aboriginal art from Australia, mandalas from India, and places seen from the sky looking down.
The Wisconsin Visual Artist Exhibition will be displayed through Feb. 24, and a reception will be Friday, Feb. 8, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. The Art & Cultures Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., and Thursday from noon to 7 p.m. The exhibit will be closed Sunday, Feb. 3, and Feb. 14-17. All visits, including parking, are free and open to the public.
