Bernard Gilardi, “Into the Light”
300 S. Sixth Ave., West Bend

Most artists do not struggle in isolation, laboring away in a lonely space. But then again, some do. So goes the story of Wisconsin artist Bernard Gilardi. He painted devotedly in his basement studio for more than four decades; his work is now posthumously discovered and publicly shown. Gilardi's luminous paintings are charged with otherworldly wisdom, apocalyptic humor and delicate tenderness. They glow and shimmer, now brilliantly catching the light of day.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
