The Art of Music in Milwaukee
June 13 – July 12, 2014
Opening reception: June 13, 5 – 9 pm.
There’s great art and great music in Milwaukee, and sometimes they intercept, collaborate and profess admiration towards one another. Our first summer exhibition “The Art of Music in Milwaukee” celebrates the relationship between music and visual arts. With over 80 pieces of artwork by more than 20 local artists and privately collected works, there certainly will be a harmony of rhythm and rhyme, and a choreographed visual symphony.
The artworks includes screen printed concert posters, original inked art and painting for posters and album covers, painted music scores, art inspired and incorporating music symbolisms, photography of legendary musician and artwork created as tribute to musicians who inspires, and much more!

Featured Member Exhibition – Leann Wooten
Formerly a painter and in love with texture, Leann Wooten began adding objects to her canvases to create a dynamic composition with physical depth. It was a natural transition for her to move into mixed media, with a strong emphasis on mosaic. Wooten feels it is necessary to have a variety of materials available to convey her thoughts.
A found object triggers her creative process. She works in a semi-abstract manner, allowing herself and the viewer touches of both the familiar and the unfamiliar. Wooten’s approach to art is spontaneous, never preconceived, and tends to explore the world around us by molding it into something new.
Wooten is one of 4 chosen for a individual member exhibition during the 2013 Annual Members Show by juror educator and arts writer Kat Murrell.
This exhibition will be shown through July 12.
