Art Preview

On a typical Gallery Night & Day, it’s the artwork inside the frame that captures attention. But this summer’s Gallery Night & Day will relate the stories behind the artwork, presenting an unseen but important facet of visual art. Reginald Baylor Studio recently moved to the lower level of the Marshall Building in the Third Ward, which is where Baylor now creates his canvases that portray bright interiors. For Gallery Night, Reginald Baylor Studio collaborates with ArtMail Milwaukee for the benefit of the Milwaukee High School of the Arts (MHSA) and the Catch . . .

Art Review

Every now and then an artist sparks controversy through no design of his own. It’s a scenario especially endemic to public art, and one with which Milwaukee is uncomfortably familiar. The city is rife with examples of public art that have provoked impassioned outcries from one party or another, whether they’re proposed projects that never got off the ground or ones single-mindedly propelled forward by a will unmatched by that of their most ardent foes. Each occasion yields the potential for an enriching discussion on the significance of public art. Whether or not it has been sufficiently taken up is another matter . . .

Milwaukee’s small galleries

When Mike Brenner threatened last winter to close Hotcakes Gallery and leave town if funds were raised to erect a bronze statue of The Fonz, a lot of people accused him of being whiny, or worse. But at the heart of his complaint was the fact that, despite easily raising $85,000 for the Bronze Fonz, people just aren’t walking into local galleries and purchasing art, which makes it hard for those galleries to stay in business. Milwaukee loves art, though, right? Gallery Night is heavily attended, so much so that it’s sometimes hard to actually enjoy the art on the walls through the cheese-nibbling crowds. But galleries, particularly those showing emerging artists, come and go . . .

Today @ the Katie Gingrass Gallery

Sculptor Joel Hunnicutt and fellow artist Jody dePew McLeane are both obsessive and meticulous builders; the former with bits of wood, the latter through staccato strokes and layers of pastel.

Today @ the Milwaukee Art Museum

British artists Gilbert and George met at St. Martins College of Art in London, 1967, and have remained creative partners ever since. Their names are never separated, they coordinate their clothes and they speak in a dialogue that appears to be scripted. And now Gilbert and George have brought their provocative . . .
