On a quiet day, maybe the static of a tinny radio filters through plywood walls, across the frozen tundra, back to shore.

Well wonder no more as we bring you Fred Alley's wildly popular tale of the secret world of ice fishermen. GUYS ON ICE spends a day in the life of Marvin and Lloyd - fishing buddies and home grown philosophers. This Wisconsin favorite gets the full Fireside treatment that will keep you laughing from start to finish.

More on Less: The History of Burlesque in America

Description: More on Less: The History of Burlesque From Lydia Thompson to Amber Ray presents the history of burlesque in America surveying its cultural influence and artistic development from the milestone performances that popularized its early stars, to the legislative and political backlash that undermined them, and ultimately, to the advent of Neo-Burlesque and the rise of a new set of burlesque icons. Stars like Gypsy Rose Lee, Sally Rand, Lili St. Cyr, Rose La Rose, Tempest Storm, Jennie Lee, Dixie Evans, Ann Corio, and contemporary performers Dita von Teese and Amber Ray are all on display, represented in photographs, costumes, advertisements, playbills, posters, vintage footage, sheet music, art, and autobiographies. Authentic costumes, both historic and contemporary, are major highlights of the exhibition. Ann Corio's 1970s jade chiffon gown, worn in HBO's 1988This Was Burlesque, pairs with more recent designs by international performer Amber Ray. Costumes and other materials will also represent the history of men in burlesque, covering the trope of the straight man to the "top banana" comics like Bert Lahr. Works by major artists are also included, demonstrating the appeal of burlesque, its dancers, and its audiences as subjects for modern painters and photographers. Reginald Marsh, Garry Winogrand and Ed Paschke are included, along with rarely-seen work by Milwaukee artist Charles Thwaites. This exhibition draws on national and Wisconsin collections to tell an American story with a local focus. Lenders to the exhibition include the Burlesque Hall of Fame; Burlyqnell - the Janelle Smith Collection; Steven Daiter Gallery, Chicago; Kiechel Fine Art, Omaha, Nebraska; Alan Koppel Gallery, Chicago; Milwaukee County Historical Society; Milwaukee Public Library, Museum of Wisconsin Art, and the Theatre Historical Society of America, among many others.

Nebulous: Abstract Works from RAM's Collection

Description: Responding to exhibition themes at both Racine Art Museum in downtown Racine and RAM's Wustum Museum that include aspects of science fiction, Nebulous features work with phenomena that may be floating, transforming, or imprecise – as if somehow moving through another dimension. The purposeful ambiguity of the imagery—with references to things that are known—further encourages contemplation and reinforces the connection to science fiction and fantasy. Drawn primarily from RAM’s collection of works on paper, this exhibition offers contemporary artists producing pieces with a variety of approaches. RAM’s Wustum Museum is located at 2519 Northwestern Avenue, Racine, WI 53403. The museum is open Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. Closed Sundays, Mondays, Federal holidays, and Easter.

Kiki's Paris

Description: The David Barnett Gallery presents Kiki's Paris, an exhibition inspired by the book about the famous Parisian model who worked and lived in Paris from 1900-1930 when Paris was the center of the art world. An opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, April 17, 2015 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, April 18, 2015 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E. State St. at Prospect Ave. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. KIKI'S PARIS re-creates the experience of being part of what Marcel Duchamp called "the first really international colony of artists we ever had". The quarter mile area on the Left Bank around the intersection of Boulevard du Montparnasse and Boulevard Raspail offered none of the traditional tourist attractions of Paris; what brought a generation of artists, writers and pleasure-seekers to the terraces of the Montparnasse cafes was the promise of personal freedom and self-fulfillment. At the center of Montparnasse life was Kiki. In Ernest Hemingway's words "She was very wonderful to look at. Having a fine fact to start with she had made of it a work of art. She had a wonderfully beautiful body and a fine voice and she certainly dominated that era of Montparnasse more than Queen Victoria ever dominated the Victoria era". Kiki, indeed, was the queen of the artists' quarter that was the dream and destination of millions of people in the 1920's; and she has come to symbolize everything Montparnasse had to offer. Tracing its beginning to a hill, Montparnasse, from which Sorbonne students declaimed their poetry, Montparnasse in the 19th century attracted academic artists and their students. From 1900 to 1930, Montparnasse was the center of artistic life for the whole world. The artists, writers and composers who were there - Apollinaire, Leger, Miro, Cocteau, Joyce, Modigliani, Brancusi, Pound, Satie, Calder, Duchamp, Matisse, Hemingway, Mondrian, Man Ray, Pascin, Picasso, Soutine, Stravinsky, Stein and countless others have created modern culture as we know it. For KIKI'S PARIS, the authors have chosen from thousands of photographs of the time and interviewed artists and models who were in Montparnasse in the 1920's. Many of the photographs in the book are by well-known artists, among them Man Ray, Berenice Abbott, Andre Kertesz and Jean Cocteau; others have never been published before or have not been seen since the twenties. The text is concise and revealing, emphasizing accuracy and adherence to fact. KIKI'S PARIS is a major contribution to the social and art history of the period. Its unique combination of photographs and text conveys the reality and flavor of our century's greatest experiment in freedom. Artists include: Man Ray, Miro, Matisse, Max Ernst, Mucha, Bonnard, Manet, Tanguy, Pissarro, Calder, Villon, Picasso, Gauguin, Hermine David, Kees Van Dongen, Derain, Marcel Duchamp, Delacroix, Renoir, Masson and Chagall. The exhibit will run through July 18, 2015. The David Barnett Gallery provides professional art consultation, appraisals, restoration and conservation, framing, lighting, custom giclee printing, delivery, and installation services. The gallery's Van Go mobile art service brings artwork to residences and offices for "on location" selection. Viewing hours at the David Barnett Gallery are 11:00am to 5:30pm Tuesday through Friday, 11:00am to 5:00pm Saturday, or by appointment. For further information, please call (414) 271-5058.

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.

Countries on both sides of the Atlantic commissioned leading artists and illustrators to provide the poster designs and drawings. Despite their common intentions, the French posters took on a more tragic character than their American counterparts, reflecting the devastation of the landscape and on the lives of soldiers and their families. The exhibition is an opportunity for CAVT Museums, until recently a body under the War Memorial Corporation umbrella, to reflect on the turbulence of warfare and its portrayal in original works by the likes of Francisque Poulbot and Steinlen. Gathered by Harriet Earling Fitch during the war years and after, the collection is a physical embodiment of an American philanthropist's longstanding relationship with a foreign country. Long before the entrance of the United States into the conflict, Harriet Fitch (later Thwaits Dake) organized and directed the Milwaukee chapter of the Fatherless Children of France and was instrumental in the founding of the Foster Mothers of America. Both organizations and Harriet Earling Fitch's philanthropic work focused on the care and support of the millions of children left fatherless by one of the deadliest conflicts in world history. For her efforts, she was awarded the Legion of Honor from the French government; her medal will be on display in the exhibition, along with archival news clippings that outline her achievements in her charitable and philanthropic work. About 20 posters, generously lent by the family of Thomas Van Alyea Jr., will go on display in the museum's great hall in this small exhibition held 100 years following World War I.
