THE MANITOWOC/MOWA CABINET: THE WORK OF PATRICK BURKE, DAVID CARPENTER, AND RANDY SAHLI
July 11-September 5, 2021 This exhibit revolves around a very special cabinet that was commissioned by the Museum of Wisconsin Art. Featuring the carpentry of Randy Sahli, the carvings of Patrick Burke, the painting of David Carpenter and finishing by Julie Gunderson, this work has deep ties to the community. A selection of work by each artist will be on exhibit.
LONG TIME PASSING
April 18-August 1, 2021 Midwest farming changes constantly. In our lifetimes, there has been a shift from small acreage family farms to two extremes: to both very large and very small farms. The state of Wisconsin alone is losing more than two family farms per day. These changes in the Midwest landscape - physically and economically - moved artists Roberta Condon and Lorraine Ortner-Blake to present together two series of paintings to focus on the struggles, joys, and challenges of Midwest farm life. This exhibit, titled "Long Time Passing", is a phrase from a Pete Seeger song.
