PAST 2015-2016 EXHIBITIONS
Tonia Klein • Mythologies
(July 10 – September 3, 2016)
Tonia Klein's screen prints are influenced by fairy tales and world mythology. She uses these as a basis for sharing personal stories and investigating the role of women throughout history. In this way her work addresses and represents the social and political spheres of women.
Digging Deep • Exploring Process & Presentation
Curated by Lena Vigna, Curator of Exhibitions at the Racine Art Museum
(May 22 – July 3, 2016)
Seven artists were asked about what motivates them and how they work through ideas. This exhibition is the result of visits to the artist’s studios and in-depth conversations with them regarding their interests and their process for making work.
Lynne Railsback • Wild & Wonderful
(March 5 – April 23, 2016)
Lynne Railsback doesn’t paint roses or orchids. The plants that grow in Midwestern woods and prairies are her subjects. Her unique watercolors have been exhibited in botanical gardens, galleries, corporations, libraries, and museums throughout the United States and Europe.
Stacey Steinberg • Camouflage
(January 9 – February 27, 2016)
Stacey Steinberg’s recent work explores the glory and decline of the honeybee. Her mixed-media images camouflage them in beauty and remind viewers of the power and vulnerability of these insects.
(November 7, 2015 – January 2, 2016)
Influenced by apocalyptic novels and real-time disasters, Knight’s paintings have begun to comment on our society’s collective fear of defeat. In the paintings, houses are destroyed beyond rescue. Left behind are colorful pieces of structure remnants. These fractured parts become the residue of our past, as well faceted patterns of light reflecting a brighter future. Rebuilding is still possible.
Peter Ciesla & Skye
(September 12 – October 31, 2015)
From fashion-driven, one-of-a-kind clothing and couture jewelry to two-dimensional decorative textiles, this multi-dimensional exhibit features works by 2011 and 2013 Hidden River Art Festival “Best in Show” winners Peter Ciesla and Skye of Bazyli Studio.
