2012/13 MARNmentors Exhibition
MARN is pleased to present the 2012/13
MARNmentors Exhibition from July 12 - July 30, 2013 in the Vanguard
Sculpture Services gallery, located at 3374 West Hopkins Street in Milwaukee,
WI. MARNmentors was developed in 2005 to strengthen the network of support for
artists, provide in-depth professional resources and to contribute to the
health of Wisconsin’s arts community. MARN acts as a liaison between
established working artists with a desire to pass on their knowledge and
professional experience to emerging artists who are selected as MARNprotégées.
MARN and its mentors believe it is essential to Milwaukee’s art community that
we cultivate relationships among our artists, and provide opportunities that
encourage emerging artists to stay and work in Milwaukee. The opening reception
will be held on July 12 from 6:00-9:00PM. It will also be open for Gallery
Night and Day on July 26th from 5PM to 9PM and the 27th from 10AM - 4PM.
This exhibition is the culmination of the year-long working
relationship between the Mentors and Protegees. The work in the exhibition
varies in medium and style, from painting and drawing, to digital installation,
and even a performative installation, whereupon the artist/celebrity will
arrive by limousine at 6:30PM during the opening event. Additionally, music
composed by Mark Mantel will be performed during the July 12th Opening
Reception, and music composed by both Mark Mantel and and Craig Peaslee will be
performed during the Friday July 26th Gallery Reception.
The Vanguard Sculpture Services gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 5:00PM or by appointment, call 414-444-5508 to make arrangements. The 2012/13 MARNmentors Exhibition runs from July 12 through July 30, 2013 and is free and open to the public. The gallery is wheelchair accessible and there is plenty of free parking.
