FIGURE IT OUT, THE FIGURE IS IN!


In our artwork we look at ourselves, laugh at ourselves, consciously or unconsciously paint ourselves. Or we gaze into others’ eyes and try to turn our paint into their emotions. We may lose the human figure in its surroundings, or let it overpower the space. Or perhaps we abstract it so much no one else knows it’s human. There are as many ways to look at humanity as there are people looking. And the latest show at the Rosenblatt Gallery features four very different artists, Davey Noble, Eriks Johnson, Virgi Driscoll, and Nancy Lamers, painting their fellow earthlings.

FIGURE IT OUT, THE FIGURE IS IN!
Jan 21, 2011 to Mar 4, 2011
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, Jan 21, 6:30-10:30 PM
Featuring
Virgi Driscoll, Eriks Johnson, Nancy Lamers, and Davey Noble

Improvisional Dance, Music, and Poetry


Each motion of the dancer flowed flawlessly into the next, like waves advancing or grasses in wind, and I sat entranced. Then it was over. The applause was enthusiastic, but not enthusiastic enough for the friend seated next to me. “What’s the matter with Milwaukee? In New York a performance like that would have brought down the house!” he exclaimed.

That was summer, 2008, at UWM. The dancer was Leonard Cruz, and when I googled him later that night, I found no more Milwaukee performances scheduled.

Now he’s back, and we’re friends. A couple of weeks ago he called me late one evening and said, “I’m performing on December 4th and 5th.”

Puzzled, I replied, “It’s already on my calendar.”

“Yes, but I wonder if you’d like to do some poetry as I dance.”

“Sure! Have you looked at my poems on our web site?”

He hadn’t. He wanted me to improvise. Improvise poetry!

I agreed to do it. Anyway.

October 15 Rosenblatt's Former Students Reception


Few professors get to see, years later, how their students turned out. Adolph is fortunate: in a few days two different exhibitions of work by his former students will be up at the same time. One has already opened, at UWM’s Inova Arts Center Gallery: Adolph and three of his students.

Trees and Snow

Hundreds of other students, 33 years worth, aren’t in the UWM show, and I wondered what they’re doing. Many keep in touch with Adolph, including me (I married him). So about a month ago I had an idea for a show in Rosenblatt Gallery: ROSENBLATT’S FORMER STUDENTS, with two artworks by each artist. For the next several days I asked the former students we happened to hear from or run into if they’d like to participate, and soon we had about twenty artists. This second show will open on Gallery Night, October 15, and will overlap for a while with the UWM show, which closes November 6.

We have an exciting array of artists: Michael Davidson, Virgi Driscoll, Mike Fredrickson, Lee Ann Garrison, Karen Brittain, Tom Brittain, Josie Osborne, Allison B. Cooke, Deidre Prosen, Steve Crossot, Mark Berson, Ken Kaczmarzyk, Henry Klimowicz, Kevin Callahan, Dean Nimmer, Wendy Cooper, Mara Manning, Nancy Lamers, Joe Boblick, Evelyn Patricia Terry, Xav Leplae, Judith Reidy, Vicki Samolyk, Patter Hellstrom, and Sarah, Eli, Joshua, Pauline, and Suzanne Rosenblatt (I was Adolph’s first student).

ROSENBLATT’S FORMER STUDENTS, Oct 15 to Nov 30, 2010
Opening Reception: Friday, Oct 15, 6:30-10:30 PM.
ROSENBLATT GALLERY, 181 N. Broadway, Milwaukee
