State of the Book: Artist’s Books of Wisconsin
March 10- April 10, 1998

An exhibition of handmade & letterpress printed artist’s books. This exhibition offers an expansive picture of the book in Wisconsin. Examples include conservation projects, fine press printing, quirky one-of-a-kind pieces and technically masterful works. The forms of the books in the show encompass the traditional, bound volume to freer, sculptural manifestations. Some book makers tend to relish a lighthearted spirit and that playfulness is evident in many of the works included in the show. The choices of subject matter are diverse, and examples of philosophical writing contrast with pop-up books. –curatorial statement

 

Sweeping and Cleaning: Order and Chaos in Domestic Life
February 27- April 4, 1998

Sweeping and Cleaning: Order and Chaos in Domestic Life will be an exhibition of local and national artists whose work draws inspiration from the everyday details of domestic life.

Artists include Lorraine Peltz of Chicago whose large-scale oil paintings present stark tableaux of everyday items; Deborah Hobbins of Madison whose intimate weavings feature articles of clothing, often inspired by fabric patterns from famous sources such as a Vermeer painting or a Jim Dine bathrobe; Camilla Pearce of Milwaukee whose mixed-media compositions are abstractions of classical quilt patterns; Laura Goldstein of Milwaukee who recontexturalizes fabric by weaving then unweaving it and processes it into text panel; and Ame Gilbert of Brooklyn, NY whose mix-media, wall installations include photographs, re-sale store paintings and ceramic objects. –press release
