West Bend, WI – 2023 marks the 10th year of Museum of Wisconsin Art in its new building on Veterans Avenue. An official celebration will be held Saturday, April 8, 2023, just two days after the official opening date.

This is the first exhibition of the year and features 10 artists MOWA thinks will be the up-and-coming artists to watch.

The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) presents Ten at Ten in its inaugural exhibition of 2023, which kicks off the tenth anniversary of MOWA’s West Bend modernist Mothership. For this exhibition, MOWA’s curatorial team selected ten artists in the early stages of their careers whose compelling work represents the next generation of artists to watch.

The exhibition will be on view January 28–April 9, 2023. An opening reception with the exhibiting artists will be held on Saturday, January 28, 2:00–4:00.

“MOWA is delighted to introduce these talented up-and-coming artists to a wider audience,” said Executive Director Laurie Winters. “We believe these are the artists to watch in 2023 and beyond. Expect great things from them over the next 10 years.”

The Ten artists are Claire Kellesvig [MFA ’22], Nykoli Koslow, Meg Lionel Murphy, Guzzo Pinc [MFA ’20], Pranav Sood [MFA ’20], Brennen Steines, Gabrielle Tesfaye, Johanna Winters, Lindsey Yeager, and Eduardo Zavala. Some are newly minted MFAs; others are showing work not previously exhibited.

Media range widely, from traditional materials such as oil on canvas and video installation to outré experiments with calcium carbonate and papier-mâché human appendages. Artist bios to follow.
