Press Preview: Analog Photographic Technique Yields Striking Effects by Tyler Friedman for Shepherd Express. March 29, 2016
We are excited to announce In Light We Trust, an alternative and analog photography exhibition featuring artists Carissa Heinrichs, F. Martin Morante, Hal Rammel and Vicki Reed. [Download Press Kit]
This artist collective baring the same name, In Light We Trust, remains true to the hands-on experimentation essential to the discovery of photography itself. The riches of these long lost and rediscovered techniques remind us that there are many ways to see the world, to celebrate its shapes and places and light.
While digital technology at times plays a minor role in this work, this exhibition will focus on the many fresh possibilities remaining in the realm of analog photography. The various processes include pinhole , cyanotypes, lumen prints, Van Dyke, CMY gum bichromate and palladium prints, and some cameraless processes like photograms and cliché verre.
Addition to the artwork, artists will display their homemade pinhole cameras and other image capturing mechanisms.
Featured Member Exhibition: Arcadia Katzenberger
January 22 – April 2, 2016
We are honored to announce the opening of our second Featured Member Exhibition of the 2015–16 season, featuring artist and art educator Arcadia Katzenberger.
My art is a reflection of observations from myself, my surroundings, and my life experiences. When approaching a new concept or idea, research is inevitable. I tend to have multiple ideas in regards of how I am going to construct and complete my work. More often than not, my projects do not end up as intended due to pure experimentation. I let my work evolve on it’s own making each work entirely unique. Mixed media is the core foundation of my work which further branches off into drawing, digital media, photography, and painting. This gives myself the chance to explore the relationships between 2D and 3D.
I believe that art making is important due to the full releasing qualities that can stem from each individual process. Art in general is both an intimate and vigorous human experience. Personally, exposure to the arts as a whole makes my experience that much more vibrant.
February 5 – March 19, 2016
We are honored to present IN//OUT, a group exhibition exploring both the advantage and burden of information overload in today’s world. The exhibition features work by emerging artists Lilia Banrevy, Peter Klett, Kate Klingbeil, James Pederson, Miguel Ramirez, Lucas Ruminski and Sandra Schmidt, and curated by Sean Heiser.
Art practices today are met with boundless access to information. The Internet, historical contexts, well-scouted mediums, and an excess of cultural ephemera grant a large amount of choices to art-making strategies. IN//OUT considers the image and object-making tendencies of a group of young artists, and how they manifest through a diverse range of work –- in conceptual frameworks, formal ideas, and technical execution.
In context of each other, the works display the eclectic modes through which this freedom to information reveals itself-through the symbols, tropes, and references…Read On.

9th Annual CoPA Juried Photography Exhibition
December 4, 2015 – January 23, 2016
The Coalition of Photographic Arts (CoPA) and Walker’s Point Center for the Arts (WPCA) are pleased to present CoPA’s 9th annual Juried Photography Exhibition (previously Midwest Juried Exhibition). This highly competitive exhibit brings some of the most talented photographic artists together in one show.
The exhibition showcases the vast creativity and
possibilities of photography as an art medium. Given today’s world where most everyone has a camera phone and share images on social media platforms, these photography exhibitions are even more poignant and necessary. The long tradition of photographic art is more than the well-composed image, but also the presentation, scale and the environment in which it is shown. This exhibition, steadily edging into a decade of excellent photographic work, continues to defy the criticism that photography, as an art medium, is dead.
This year’s juror is Melissa Dorn Richards, artist and co-owner of…Read on.
2015 exhibitions are supported in part by grants from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary L. Nohl Fund, CDBG Milwaukee, Milwaukee County Arts Fund, and grants from the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
