Whippersnappers Make Strong Showing at Bay View Gallery Night
At one month old, Haven Art Center is Bay Viewâ€™s newest gallery. Welcome it to the neighborhood and enjoy the exhibition of a slew of local artists working with watercolors, ceramics and other media from 5-10 p.m. For the first time BVGN will feature the art of children. The earnest efforts of juvenescence will be on display at the Bay View Neighborhood Associationâ€™s First Annual Art Competition held at the local library from 4-6 p.m. The competition will overlap with an exhibition put on by middle and high school students from 5-7 p.m. in the Innovation Gallery. If, like Whitney, you believe the children are our future, hereâ€™s your opportunity to see â€śall the beauty they possess inside.â€ť
â€śScrutiny After The Glimpseâ€ť and â€śAGODâ€ť
Haggerty Museum of Art
530 N. 13th St.
Two new exhibitions opening June 4 commence summer at Marquette Universityâ€™s Haggerty Museum of Art. â€śScrutiny After the Glimpseâ€ť names not only this chronologically and stylistically diverse suite of portraits, but also the proper way to view it. If the works have been meticulously installed to highlight how context invests a work with meaning, only scrutiny will reveal these meanings themselves. Thorne Brandtâ€™s â€śAGODâ€ť (an acronym for â€śanimated GIF of the dayâ€ť) is a psychedelic collage of GIFsâ€”graphic interchange formatsâ€”which Brandt created, one-per-day, over the course of three years. Whatâ€™s the diagnosis for acclimating too quickly to the chaotic barrage of animated stimuli?
1500 S. 73rd St.
Beginning on June 6, West Allisâ€™ Inspiration Studios presents the work of visual artist, performance artist and art model, RenĂ©e Bebeau. In â€śNature Morte,â€ť Bebeau transforms the exhibition space into a funeral parlor complete with paintings, installations and an indoor grave in which viewers are invited to plant seeds, meditating all the while on their own goals for rebirth. The show continues until July 2, and at 4 p.m. on June 8, the artist will perform her piece â€śRebirth.â€ť Attendees will go home with seeds whose growth is to serve as a valuable example to be followed.
