Dean Jensen Gallery obtains contemporary fine art from around the world and showcases it in Milwaukee. For the fall Gallery Night and Day, Jensen is co-curating an exhibit with Russell Bowman, former director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. In “Great Impressions III,” Bowman and Jensen offer an exclusive peek at their private collections, including limited-edition prints.

“Great Impressions III” will be the third in a series displaying works on paper by leading international artists. Peter Doig, Sam Gilliam, Alex Katz, Jim Nutt, Ed Paschke, Kiki Smith, Donald Sultan and Sue Williams are among the prestigious artists in this exhibition.

Jensen will also feature Santiago Cucullu, one of Milwaukee's own and an internationally respected artist. Cucullu recently opened an exhibition in Mexico City titled “In the Lavender Haze,” a series of installations and visual images responding to the writings of philosopher Martin Ayos.

Jensen is still finalizing which works of art will be selected for this exhibition. “I don't exactly know how it will come together just yet, but there will be all contemporary work from blue-chip artists,” he says.

The gallery hosts an opening reception 6-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, as well as a Saturday viewing.
