Through March 25
Bernard Gilardi, “Into the Light”
300 S. Sixth Ave., West Bend

Most artists do not struggle in isolation, laboring away in a lonely space. But then again, some do. So goes the story of Wisconsin artist Bernard Gilardi. He painted devotedly in his basement studio for more than four decades; his work is now posthumously discovered and publicly shown. Gilardi's luminous paintings are charged with otherworldly wisdom, apocalyptic humor and delicate tenderness. They glow and shimmer, now brilliantly catching the light of day.

Poll

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele has the power to appoint a commissioner to privatize primarily black and Latino Milwaukee Public Schools in a turnaround district. Will this privatization plan improve student performance?
