Milwaukee’s Charles Allis Art Museum showcases the work of a diverse group of outstanding Wisconsin artists in its seventh biennial juried exhibition, on display through April 14.
Forward 2018: A Survey of Wisconsin Art Now consists of 45 works (out of 450 submissions) selected by jurors Ariel Pate, assistant curator of photography at the Milwaukee Art Museum, and Faythe Levine, assistant curator at John Michael Kohler Arts Center and Arts/Industry program manager.
Forward 2018 features everything from still life and abstract paintings to aerial photography to digital video and stop-motion animation to textile art and sculpture. Artists include Hal Rammel, Pat Hidson, Austin Fischer, Joe Acri, Alyssa Ackerman, Siara Berry, Jeffrey Clancy, Steve Burnham, Sheila Held and J Myzka Lewis.
Exhibit curator Jenille Junco said the works showcased in this year’s Forward marks a departure from traditional subject matter and media.
