The Artist Eye Art Exhibit
The Artist Eye Art Exhibit Break winter’s humdrum by enjoying some fresh art at Galaudet Gallery’s first art exhibit of 2017 The Artist’s Eye. Pomologicals, Botanicals, Landscapes, Portraits, Artist’s Books, Architectural Designs, Cutouts and more fill the over 1500 square feet of gallery space found in the four rooms of Galaudet Gallery in downtown Eau Claire. Each of Galaudet Gallery’s four rooms is dedicated to different ways artists see our world. The Tower Room named for its 3 story curved tower shows the Artist as Visionary with Picasso’s three visions of peace, O’Keefe’s visions of nature and other artists’ visions. The Bay Room named for its wonderful bay window looking south over Seaver St. holds the Artist as Explorer part of this exhibit with Fine art prints and originals of Pomologicals , Botanicals and Flowers painted by American Artists from 1820—2017 that are aesthetically pleasing, historically significant, and visually exciting. The Studio Room named for its present-day use as an artist studio shows the Artist as Seeker with energetic originals from Vicki Milewski’s Pipestones Collection and her small, gently priced canvases of flowers from her Secrets They Have Shared with Me Collection. The Center Shop is the fourth room in Galaudet Gallery and it shows the Artist as Maker with wonderful jewelry, chic décor and artworks that continue the theme of each exhibit. One of a kind pieces can be found throughout the gallery but The Center Shop is filled with more wearable, useable pieces. The Artist Eye begins Galaudet Gallery’s Year of 21st Century Realities with shows that seek new visions and views of our 21st Century lives. After their inspiring Year of the Rebel shows in 2016, the gallery now explores the place we find ourselves after rebellion. Galaudet Gallery co-owner Mike Milewski explains, “We plan our shows several years in advance leaving small spaces for new work. We look at the year in a thematic way and then also connect those yearly themes to larger narratives that drive our work and place the artworks into a larger conversation about art and art making. This year we will have two major calls for artists that will also add to our understanding of the 21st Century Realities theme.” “We are also honoring the passing of John Berger (1926–2017), whose book and series Ways of Seeing inspired this particular show and his correspondence with us several years ago during the planning stages of this show helped us to realize what we offer here today.” Visit The Artist’s Eye to enjoy some fresh art and maybe find something special for your home or office that is priced well and filled with the Galaudet Gallery quality and selection many have come to know.
