ArtStart’s spring exhibition is open to the public and will feature the works of two Wisconsin artists.
Kirsty Deetz, a University of Wisconsin Green Bay professor introduced her “Uncovering Surface and Silence” paintings, which invoke and reinvent European canonical painting. The works comprise a series of encaustic and oil paintings on carved wood that revise traditional images of of drapery and still life.
Shane Walsh, an instructor at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee introduced his exhibit, “101 Ways to Cook an Egg.” The paintings begin with small-scale collages constructed from photo copies and marks, which respond to the history of abstract painting and punk hip-hop posters of his youth. He then translates his compositions into large-scale paintings.
The exhibition is open to the public now, through May 26. Gallery hours for ArtStart, 68 South Stevens St., Rhinelander, are Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free; donations are accepted.
ArtStart is a non profit 501 (c)3 organization located in the historic Federal Building in downtown Rhinelander with a mission to inspire, challenge and educate through cultural events and highly-distinctive, curated visual art exhibitions with the purpose of strengthening and sustaining our community.
