Robin Jebavy: Recent Paintings Opening Reception

Description: Free and open to the public. Exhibition on view March 1-May 31, 2015. Robin Jebavy makes still life paintings of glassware. Her project, however, is much larger: to offer the viewer an experience that evokes the original, sublime, oceanic feelings of union with the strange and mysterious "other," of self with universe. Her paintings invite the viewer to part the curtain and sense oneness with the world--a state in which we found ourselves in the mother's womb before birth, and from which we all emerged. Jebavy employs glassware forms to construct altar-like architectural spaces that evoke Baroque artworks, illusionistic Italian ceiling paintings, and cathedrals. In her recent paintings, she experiments with ornate cut-glass forms to achieve a feeling of the "embroidered" interconnectedness of self and world.

Description: In this new comedy by local playwright, Neil Haven, Sky's best friend Erin has passed away and left Sky the unenviable task of finding the perfect resting place for her remains. With detailed instruction, Sky is to visit every cremation shop in the lower forty-eight states. Things get complicated when Erin's estranged mother shows up and insists the ashes be laid to rest in the family plot, throwing the trip off course for Sky.

Mary Jones - New Paintings

Description: Mary Jones - New Paintings "What to do with all that I have collected? My work wanders through place and time by recording experience with words, drawings, photos, scraps- usually combined. No medium alone says enough. These images combine ways of knowing places, negotiating change. If there is a central figure, and often there is, this person is engaged in observation, taking it all in, passing through-not unlike the fl nerie of nineteenth century Paris. The fl neur, or fl neuse, in my case, is both spectator and spectacle. Each image refers to a specific place, through time. Just as memories are made of layers, these images are a collaged, reinvented, cartooned. The map serves as a metaphor and matrix for reconstructing experience. The places are the most ordinary, usually intersections of streets that I visited more than once in a day in cities where I have lived. I have spent most of my life in Illinois and Iowa. I have crossed the Mississippi more times than I can count." Gallery Hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11 to 5 and Saturday, 11 to 4

Description: Praised by The New York Times as "extraordinary," The Amish Project is a devastating and beautiful one-woman tour-de-force performance that compels us to question the paths we take at the crossroads of grief, rage, and clemency. Inspired by the 2006 school shootings in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, this fictional account of a real-life tragedy allows us to glimpse into the world of Amish culture, and to come to grips with the true limits of compassion and forgiveness.

Ceramic Handbuilding: Trays, Tiles & Trivets

Description: A Workshop with Linda Wervey Vitamvas Register online now. Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included) Registration: Space is limited; advanced registration required. If you prefer to register by phone, please call 414-446-8794. You may also be interested in Ceramic Handbuilding: Porcelain Vases with Linda Wervey Vitamvas, February 23, 10 am-4 pm, or Ceramic Handbuilding: Trays, Tiles and Trivets with Linda Wervey Vitamvas, March 14, 10 am-4 pm. Working in clay is deeply satisfying, and making pottery allows one to explore aesthetics and function simultaneously. In Trays, Tiles, and Trivets we will work with porcelain slabs. The focus will be on different surface decoration techniques such as stencils, image transfer, various carving methods, and adding underglazes for color. With changes in scale and minor additions our flat designs will magically turn into functional trays, tiles and trivets. Bring textures and objects to press into the clay as well as images and designs that you would like to see take form on your pieces. They will then be fired and finished with a clear glaze to protect the surface and make them functional. Those attending more than one workshop will find plenty to do each time. Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for studio work as well as the outdoors. We'll be making use of Lynden's 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. You will need to return at a later date to pick up your pieces. About Linda Wervey Vitamvas Linda Wervey Vitamvas earned her B.S. in Nursing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and practiced psychiatric, obstetrical and surgical nursing before returning to UWM for her M.F.A. Vitamvas has won awards in the 2009 Wisconsin Biennial, Forward: A Survey of Wisconsin Art Now, and the 2005 and 2010 Kohler Eight Counties exhibitions. Her work has been featured in the 2010 Wisconsin Triennial at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend and at the Wisconsin Academy's James Watrous Gallery in Madison. She has also exhibited at the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Villa Terrace Decorative Art Museum as well as in ceramic arts exhibitions nationally. Linda Wervey Vitamvas has been an artist-in-residence at the Lynden Sculpture Garden.

grow Workshop with Yevgeniya Kaganovich

Description: Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Yevgeniya Kaganovich and her student assistants will take up residence in the studio all afternoon to make the next "planting" of grow, Kaganovich's durational installation. grow is a system of interconnected plant-like forms simulating a self-propagating organism in multiple stages of development. Created from a singular material, recycled plastic bags, the system grows over time, its growth rate determined by the number of bags accumulated in our official recycling bin. Drop in to watch or participate as Kaganovich fuses the layers of plastic to create a surface similar to leather or skin, molds the skin into plant-like volumes, stuffs the volumes with more bags, and connects the forms with plastic bag "thread." Tasks include cutting sheets and strips; fusing sheets and tubes; sewing bulb forms and connecting them to bases; crocheting tubes and necks; stuffing stalks; and assembling the plants.

FeederWatch Orientation at Lynden

Description: Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Lynden is now a registered site for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Project FeederWatch. The main goal of this citizen science project is to combine the interests of backyard bird watchers with the needs of ornithologists who study bird populations. By making simple, standardized counts of the birds in their yards (or, in this case, at Lynden) and reporting them to the FeederWatch database, FeederWatchers contribute directly to the scientific understanding of bird populations. These observations help scientists study changes in the distribution and abundance of feeder birds over time. We've established a new bird feeder on the grounds, using the recommended seeds to attract birds through the seasons. We have binoculars and color charts to help us identify the birds at our feeder. Now, we need bird viewers of all ages and experience levels to join us on our siting days to help tally our observations for the project. We are planning additional programs, such as birdwalks, around the project. In the interim, you can visit the FeederWatch website and download their very useful handbook. We have designated two consecutive days each month from November through April for orientations. Once you've received this training, you can sign up for birdwatching slots by emailing Naomi Cobb at ncobb@lyndensculpturegarden.org. FeederWatch Orientation Sessions Here are our first official dates for FeederWatch orientations. Drop in anytime during the hours designated below.

Description: Visit this new and profound exhibit about the impact of the Holocaust. In 1939 Hedwig and Paul Strnad of Prague sent a letter to Milwaukee cousin Alvin Strnad pleading for help to come to the United States. They included 8 of Hedwig's dress designs to show that they would be employable here. Despite Alvin's best attempts, Paul and Hedwig were not able to come to this country and they perished in the Holocaust. The Museum has had Hedwig's dresses actually created to honor her legacy and to remember all of the talent lost in the Holocaust. Visit www.JewishMuseumMilwaukee.org for information about this special exhibit and exhibit programming.
