Experimental art opposes traditional art, youth meets longevity and simplicity confronts complexity in a new exhibition opening March 14 at the Tory Folliard Gallery. It includes “Ink Paintings” by Boris Ostrerov, winner of the thirdannual Tory Folliard Gallery Project. Initiated by the gallery, this project provides an opportunity for an advanced-painting student at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) or the UW-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts to exhibit undergraduate artwork. The project also allows emerging artists to experience the business side of art from the gallery’s perspective, part of Folliard’s desire to demonstrate how professional artists are able to survive in a competitive economic environment.
