54) TORY FOLLIARD GALELRY – (233 N. Milwaukee St. - 414.273.7311 - toryfolliard.com)The Modern Landscape
Landscapes have fascinated artists since ancient times: the earliest scenes without humans are from 1500 BCE Minoa. Why is it important to artists to depict their surroundings? Why do some artists paint literal depictions while others interpret, extrapolate, and extract details to create scenes that go beyond what is before their eyes. In The Modern Landscape we have artists from both camps whose methods vary widely but who share a fascination with the natural world.
Robert Cocke paints intimately scaled, highly detailed surreal locations filled with marvelous light. John Dilg’s abstracted landscapes are intimate with subtle colors and delicately rendered surfaces.
Harold Gregor, known as the “Dean of Heartland Painters” will be showing his grand Vibrascapes, which are expressive studies in color theory. Kathy Hofmann’s peaceful, realistic pastoral scenes reflect the bucolic lifestyle of this Wisconsin artist. Michael Velliquette’s visually abundant three dimensional landscapes are elaborately constructed with painted and cut paper. Theodore Waddell captures the spirit of the American west with rough surfaces and elegant strokes in his reverent paintings. James Winn captures the spiritual side of the Midwest countryside in a photorealistic style. Janica Yoder’s photographs of water and trees compare movement to stasis through color, form, and emotion. Meet many of the artists on Gallery Night! Exhibition October 18 through November 30. Friday: 11am to 9pm, Saturday: 11am to 4pm
