Joe Couture, "Portrait of Hardship and Loss", colored pencil, pastel on paper, 2013

Please join us in the unveiling of our new Featured Member Exhibition featuring Joe Couture on Friday, July 25, summer Gallery Night, 5-9 pm.

The exhibition runs though October 4.

Couture’s work finds its inspiration from the ways in which emotions impact human behavior.  In particular, he’s drawn to the tragedies that result from the inability to understand and communicate emotions, and to be emotionally available to others.  Couture employs various media to capture moments of emotional intensity and psychological tension in a manner conducive to initially accessing that intensity and tension.  Inside these moments, he pushes the limits of empathy and questions what it means to be emotionally intelligent.

Featured Member Profile: Eddee Daniel


Eddee Daniel – two d’s, double e’s, a common first name for a last name; it seems like there’s a lot of duality in his life, past and present. He’s a photographer and writer. He has two blogs — Urban Wilderness, where he writes and shares photographs about the Menomonee Valley and the Menomonee River watershed, and Arts Without Borders, a blog he started to share his experiences from art and cultural excursions. But actually, when you go through his extensive work in photography, publication, writing, education, activism and anything else, you might run out of fingers trying to keep track of the vast roles and identities of Eddee Daniel. You might run out of toes, too.

Eddee was an art educator for over three decades, and taught at Marquette High School and various local colleges. He received a master’s degree in art education from UWM. As an art educator, he was capable and knowledgeable in various art mediums and disciplines, and not until later in his life that he took up photography as his art expression. He has published many books, including his first, Urban Wilderness: Exploring a Metropolitan Watershed, a collection of his photographs and essays about the scenery, transformation and the urban/natural dichotomy and harmony along the Menomonee River watershed.

Eddee was named the Artist in Residence of the Menomonee Valley Partners (MV AiR) earlier this year. Read more →

Spring Featured Member Exhibition: Leann Wooten
Apr 25, 2014—Jul 12, 2014

WPCA member artist Leann Wooten presents her work at our spring Featured Member Exhibition.

Her work uses found objects and materials of varied texture and shape to create imagery that are reminiscent of folklore and mythology. Wooten’s approach to art is spontaneous, never preconceived, and tends to explore the world around us by molding it into something new.
