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 . . .

Today @ the Museum of Wisconsin Art

Man and woman have long chosen to adorn their bodies, be it with paint, metal rings or exotic fabrics. This theme of body ornamentation, from the imaginatively extravagant to the utterly sublime, pervades the exhibit Museum of Wisconsin Art’s exhibit, “Frippery: Peculiar Bijoutery or Curiously Adorned?,” which ends . . .

Today @ the Paper Boat Boutique and Gallery

Through June, the Paper Boat Boutique and Gallery will be featuring the work of San Francisco artist Catherine Ryan.

Art Review

George Ray McCormick, Sr. has been on earth for 65 years. Apparently it gave him a goodly dose of hell and purgatory until he renounced living on the edge and reaffirmed his faith in 1991. A year later he began a new life that included making art, specifically dolls and various wood carvings. I first saw his work years ago at Walker’s Point Center for Arts. This year he returned to the center to participate in “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” On May 28, a mini-retrospective of his efforts (“From the Secular to the Spiritual”) opens at The Charles Allis Art Museum . . .

Tonight @ the Charles Allis Art Museum - 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Kinnickinnic Ave.) burst onto the Milwaukee art scene. Tonight from 6 to 10 p.m., the gallery celebrates the opening of its second . . .
