‘25 for 25’ Toasts Jensen’s Silver Anniversary
The exhibition features 25 artists Jensen has represented over the past 25 years. UW-Madison professor and painter Nancy Mladenoff produced Jensen’s first show (which sold out). UW-Madison MFA graduate Claire Stigliani contributes to the exciting exhibition with feminine images that parody fairy tales.
Former Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design professor Ann Gale began at Jensen’s gallery and later discovered national fame. Other familiar Milwaukee artists wishing Jensen well include Santiago Cucullu, David Niec and Jason Yi. Also on display will be works by Julian Schnabel, Garry Winogrand (1928-1984) and Lee Friedlander.
Dean Jensen Gallery hosts its Gallery Night event 6-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19. Jensen’s new book, Queen of the Air, will arrive in bookstores in spring 2013. This month, the Milwaukee Press Club will induct him into its Media Hall of Fame. What does Jensen think of these momentous occasions? He smiles and says, “It’s been a blast, and I’ve had the chance to write a few books along the way.”
