2009 Exhibition Schedule

Seeking the Light:  Studio Glass by Luke Jacomb
January 21 - March 29, 2009

Opening Reception:  Wednesday, January 28 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Jacomb has embraced photosensitive glass in a way that is entirely his own.  What makes a Jacomb piece remarkable is the combination of intricate Venetian glasswork techniques, a reinterpretation of decorative imagery from the pacific islands, and his innovative use of photosensitive glass.  Through these techniques Jacomb is able to produce works with amazing luminosity and depth.

Marina Bychkova:  Enchanted Doll
April 8 – June 7, 2009

Influenced by traditional Russian and European folktales, Russian artist Marina Bychova’s handcrafted dolls are suffused with an uncanny eroticism that comments on fable, fantasy and the cultural roll of dolls.

Jon Michael Route:  For the Love of Metal
June 17 – August 23, 2009
Veteran Wisconsin metal artist Jon Michael Route’s work is in the great tradition of American Studio Craft where commitment to technique is juxtaposed with restless pursuit of artistic form. Route is especially known for his exuberant and often fanciful take on the commonplace teapot. The exhibition covers several decades of his work.

Marilyn Annin
September 16, 2009 –January 17, 2010
Wisconsin sculptor Marilyn Annin uses found and fabricated materials to construct freestanding forms resembling clothing, uniforms or costumes, which the artist refers to as “landscapes.” In Annin’s work a garment becomes a revealing topography of an absent or imagined subject.
