Creative Reflections – 2014 Youth Art Exhibition

July 25 – August 23

Opening Reception: Friday, July 25, 5-9pm.

You are cordially invited to “Creative Reflections - 2014 Youth Art Exhibition.” 

This annual youth art exhibition will show the inspirational and creative talent of our Summer Art Camp students. The exhibition will include photography, drawing, painting and multimedia artwork.

Year round, our gallery is filled with quality artwork by outstanding artists and curated by art professionals. Our mission as an organization is to provide art experiences that are inspiring and thought-provoking to everyone, regardless of age. We also thrive in promoting creativity and self-expression through art with youth. We believe that art is very important in youth development and that art education inspires confidence, creative problem solving and academic achievement.

Please join us in witnessing the talents of youth artists and come view the inspiring art that they have created.

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. 

Current Project

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


Artists of Music in Milwaukee: Arthur Thrall

Arthur Thrall speaks very little and often looks at you with an affectionate smile. His artwork, however, presents complex form and styling. Music is often the theme in his paintings and prints; he composes and choreographs visual symphonies with fluidic curves and melodic notations Read more →

The Art of Music in Milwaukee

Apr 25, 2014—Jul 12, 2014

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