Cut / Create: The Endless Possibilities of Paper

Description: August 24 – September 11 Closing Reception: Friday, September 11, 5-8pm / Artist Lecture 7pm As an artistic medium, paper is often characterized as a simple material. It can be seen as merely a support onto which art is created, rather than as art itself. This exhibition questions those assumptions by presenting a number of contemporary artists who have taken on paper as an artistic medium with amazing results. Ranging from vibrant three-dimensional sculptures to lively silhouettes that stretch across the walls, these works showcase the endless creative possibilities presented by paper. Cut / Create: The Endless Possibilities of Paper, includes the work of seven regional artists as well a selection of work drawn from Special Collections at the UWM Libraries. Join us in this exploration of paper as an intriguing artistic medium through the work of these artists. EXHIBITING ARTISTS Heather Beardsley, Dara Larson, Dutes Miller and Stan Shellabarger, Matt Shlian,Michael Velliquette, Nathan Vernau, and selected work from UW-Milwaukee Library Special Collections Cosponsored by Special Collections at the UWM Libraries

Featured Acquisition: Elenor Wilson's American Tourister Still Life

Description: Encouraging thoughts of summer travel and “getting away from it all,” Elenor Wilson’s American Tourister Still Life turns seemingly mundane luggage into a poetic installation. Rendering suitcases in porcelain, stacking them almost four feet tall, and adding shoes, an apple, a soda bottle, and highly decorated supportive “feet,” Wilson blends past and present as she investigates how objects carry meaning. This work is a recent gift from longtime RAM donors, David and Jacqueline Charak. An admission fee of $5 for adults, with reduced fees for students and seniors, applies at RAM.

A Whole Other World: Sub-Culture Craft at the Racine Art Museum

Description: This summer, Racine Art Museum explores the intersection of art with cultural subjects that inspire devoted "fan" followings. This exhibition specifically addresses the science fiction and fantasy-based themes of Doctor Who, Star Wars, Superheroes, and Steampunk. Each of these subjects all linked to history, imagination, fact, and fiction in their own particular ways has become the subject of artworks, DIY craft, and major projects. Focusing on work directly inspired by these themes, or by the winding of these kinds of topics in and out of popular culture, A Whole Other World features a variety of objects and images, from quilts to prints to sculpture. RAM encourages visitors to come dressed in character to receive free museum admission.
