The Modern Landscape

Redline Milwaukee

My painting- Warm Sky, was juried into this exhibition.

Celebrating contemporary perspectives of landscape artwork
A Juried Group Exhibition

Exhibition runtime: June 7  –  July 6, 2018 (Opening reception June 7th, 6-9pm)

The Modern Landscape exhibition at RedLine Milwaukee is dedicated to the furtherance of artists whose perception of landscapes are innovative, captivating and display expert execution of the concept. Over the course of history landscape paintings have developed from capturing mountain scenes, gently rolling hills, and still water garden ponds to cityscapes and views of urban areas, even venturing further into the abstract. One thing that remains true is that landscapes are one of the most desired genres among art collectors.  By giving artists the freedom to determine what defines a landscape, this exhibition will explore and go beyond the boundaries of the traditional landscape, giving viewers a glimpse the state of contemporary landscape painting in the early 21st century.

I feel very fortunate to have been included in MARN’s recent Painting Salon.  The show is hung at MARN’s headquarters at 5407 W. Vliet Street.  There are six artists represented, including myself.  Other artists are Ann Baer, Fred Bell, Jim Zwaldo, Michael Davidson, and Katherine Rosing.

We were treated to a full weekend of art conversation.  The show begain last Thursday with a private curator night.  Area curators along with special guest curator Scott Speh were invited to come and talk to us about our work.  I received a range of comments and found the experience incredibly useful and thought provoking.  Friday night was a public reception which was fun, social, and exciting.  Finally, Saturday morning peers and public were invited to come critique the work.  We had a small but thoughtful group.  Again, I left with a head full of ideas.

I know that this experience will change my work.  Plans are already in the works for a new series and I am fired up about the potential.  Maggie Sasso, who curated this exhibition, did a remarkable job of hanging the work and putting together a successful event.  The show will remain on display through June 16th.
