Romano Johnson: Silver Art Bible, and, Skully Gustafson: The Juice

The gallery is open Thursday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. and by appointment.
207 E. Bufffalo St., Ste 526, Milwaukee, WI, 53202


Summer exhibitions at Portrait Society Gallery


Romano Johnson, Silver Art Bible and Skully Gustafson, The Juice, will open 

with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 18 at Portrait Society Gallery. The shows run through September 13.


Portrait Society is located in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward at 207 E. Buffalo Street, FIFTH Floor, Marshall Building. It is one of the city’s most progressive contemporary art spaces. 


Both Romano Johnson and Skully Gustafson bring performative qualities to their paintings and their lives. The artists expand the boundaries of their practices by turning themselves into works of art. By painting his clothes and shaving patterns into his hair, Romano Johnson visually blends with his glitter-induced paintings of super stars, motorcycles and imagined places. Skully, in collaboration with his partner Erik Moore, dresses (and undresses) in layered collages of fabric, fishnet and silk, often using studio installations as sets for performances and photo shoots.
