Toward the Texture of Knowing

Artists included in this exhibition have engaged in slow and intentional examination of everyday points of contact—encounters with people, with emotion, with time, and with the world—as sites of curiosity and impact. The resulting works of art are unified by the use of skins, surfaces, screens, and other literalized contact zones as a point of departure for artistic inquiry into the human condition. The exhibition includes work by Felix Gonzales-Torres, Ragen Moss, Rachel Rose, Christina Ramberg, and others. (Heads up, one of the installations involves candy!)

Organized around the release of the new book IRONBOAT by Christopher Winters, this exhibition is a wonderfully vibrant and powerful collection of photographs tracing the toil and travels of a pair of ironboats on the Great Lakes Superior and Michigan.  Most notably, it is an artistic and visual record of the Wilfred Sykes—the largest vessel on the Great Lakes at the time of her launch in 1949—and the Edward Ryerson—one of two remaining straightdeckers on the American Great Lakes.  Following the success of his book Centennial, in which he chronicled life aboard the century-old lake steamer St. Marys Challenger, reportedly the oldest operational freight ship in the world, Winters returns to a subject that has captivated him for decades

GALLERY HOURS:
Mon.-Fri.: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday: Noon to 6 p.m.
Sunday: 1 to 4 p.m.

On the Nature of Wisconsin is the first exhibition at The Warehouse to feature only artists who were born or have spent significant time in the state of Wisconsin.

The opening reception will be Friday, January 17th from 5-9pm during Gallery Night. Special guests include educators from The Schlitz Audubon Nature Center and sculptor Bill Reid with a pop-up exhibition.  On the Nature of Wisconsin will run through March 20th.

Featuring work from the permanent collection, On the Nature of Wisconsin is a celebration of Wisconsin artists and their relationship with the natural world. A state known for its fresh water, forests, and parks, this exhibition examines the connections artists have made and observed with these surroundings. Works included depict sweeping landscapes, quiet farm life, re-imagined plants and animals, and objects exemplifying natural forms.

This exhibition will be open regular hours and by appointment during the 2020 Milwaukee Museum Week, January 18th–26th. Programming during that week includes an Artist Talk with Bill Reid on Monday, January 20th at 11a.m. “The Beests of Bill Reid” will be an open dialogue with the artist discussing various birds, which are among his favorite “beests” to depict. Learn about his metal sculpting process and why he revisits birds throughout his work. This program is free and open to the public, all ages are welcome.   Bill Reid’s pop-up exhibition The Unexpected Birdwatcher will be on exhibit in the Guardian viewing rooms during Gallery Night and Day and Milwaukee Museum Week.

There will also be a Curator Tour with exhibition curator Annemarie Sawkins, PhD on Wednesday, January 22nd at 12pm. Join Sawkins in a tour through the exhibition highlighting nature-themed art in the collection and learn more about her work on a book on the history of Wisconsin’s artists.

Organized around the release of the new book IRONBOAT by Christopher Winters, this exhibition is a wonderfully vibrant and powerful collection of photographs tracing the toil and travels of a pair of ironboats on the Great Lakes Superior and Michigan.  Most notably, it is an artistic and visual record of the Wilfred Sykes—the largest vessel on the Great Lakes at the time of her launch in 1949—and the Edward Ryerson—one of two remaining straightdeckers on the American Great Lakes.  Following the success of his book Centennial, in which he chronicled life aboard the century-old lake steamer St. Marys Challenger, reportedly the oldest operational freight ship in the world, Winters returns to a subject that has captivated him for decades

GALLERY HOURS:
Mon.-Fri.: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday: Noon to 6 p.m.
Sunday: 1 to 4 p.m.

On the Nature of Wisconsin is the first exhibition at The Warehouse to feature only artists who were born or have spent significant time in the state of Wisconsin.

The opening reception will be Friday, January 17th from 5-9pm during Gallery Night. Special guests include educators from The Schlitz Audubon Nature Center and sculptor Bill Reid with a pop-up exhibition.  On the Nature of Wisconsin will run through March 20th.

Featuring work from the permanent collection, On the Nature of Wisconsin is a celebration of Wisconsin artists and their relationship with the natural world. A state known for its fresh water, forests, and parks, this exhibition examines the connections artists have made and observed with these surroundings. Works included depict sweeping landscapes, quiet farm life, re-imagined plants and animals, and objects exemplifying natural forms.

This exhibition will be open regular hours and by appointment during the 2020 Milwaukee Museum Week, January 18th–26th. Programming during that week includes an Artist Talk with Bill Reid on Monday, January 20th at 11a.m. “The Beests of Bill Reid” will be an open dialogue with the artist discussing various birds, which are among his favorite “beests” to depict. Learn about his metal sculpting process and why he revisits birds throughout his work. This program is free and open to the public, all ages are welcome.   Bill Reid’s pop-up exhibition The Unexpected Birdwatcher will be on exhibit in the Guardian viewing rooms during Gallery Night and Day and Milwaukee Museum Week.

There will also be a Curator Tour with exhibition curator Annemarie Sawkins, PhD on Wednesday, January 22nd at 12pm. Join Sawkins in a tour through the exhibition highlighting nature-themed art in the collection and learn more about her work on a book on the history of Wisconsin’s artists.
