Galley One: Luke Aleckson
"The future used to be exciting before we became accustomed to exponential advances in everything. Like floating astronauts, we are going 1000 mph but are bored/boring."
Gallery Two: Amy Sands
“I am interested in the interaction of color, space and memory – both from a perspective of the artist’s process as well as from the viewer’s active interaction with a finished piece. My art originates in my interest of the day-to-day experiences influenced by color, pattern and space, and how this is recorded in memory.”
Gallery Three: Anna Carlson
“The process of printmaking created layers of text that resemble a densely woven pattern beyond readability. This textural pattern refers to the millions of memory fragments that are stored in cupboards and boxes in our brains.”
Overlook Gallery: Jonathon Engelien
“In Central Wisconsin, I grew up in an area straddling a post industrial world and seemingly untamed wilderness. The harsh winters of the Upper Midwest, the liturgical display of seasons, and the economic and social decay of the region foster my interest in survivalism and post apocalyptic imagery.”
Riverview Gallery: Medicine Men by John L. Doyle
This portfolio of 10 five color, hand printed, stone lithographs is a visual interpretation of mankind’s many faceted Medicine Men. To produce this series of work, artist John L. Doyle (1939 – 2010) spent two years researching in the field, in museums, and in libraries. This ethnological and anthropological study translates into images of remarkable historical and cultural accuracy.
Atrium Gallery: Lisa Buck
