    Pete RailandJanuary through March 2018 - Riverside ParkFrom the show
    Born in Milwaukee, raised in the north woods of Wisconsin, Pete returned to Milwaukee. His artistic practice is based on the belief that the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action has great potential to transform society. He is a founding member of the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative. Justseeds is a decentralized community of artists who together create and sell prints, blog, build art installations, curate shows, publish books and portfolios, and contribute graphics to grassroots struggles for social and environmental justice, all while offering each other support as allies and friends. His practice begins in the world of traditional printmaking, often utilizing the relief printing medium to address environmental and social justice themes.

  • Leann Wooten
    January through March 2018 - Riverside Park
    From the show "Reflecting Stories All Around Us"

    Leann WootenJanuary through March 2018 - Riverside ParkFrom the show
    Leann works with ceramic, glass, and an array of contemporary materials to create imagery and environments that make an impact. She worked with sixty neighborhood kids to create the large mosaic at the Urban Ecology Center Menomonee Valley branch. Leann has served as lead artist for many organizations including Arts @ Large, Artists Working in Education (AWE), and Redline. Formerly a painter, in love with texture, she began adding objects to my canvases. Now working in mosaic art, she does the reverse, sometimes adding a little paint to her mosaics. She works intuitively, so the process is never too preplanned. She builds dimension with a broad variety of materials, and many times a found object is the first thing that triggers the whole created process, exploring the world around her and recycling it into something new and unexpected.

    Composite Organisms - Sue LawtonDecember 2017 - February 2018 -Menomonee ValleyFrom the show
    The artifacts and images in this installation tell the story of time-traveling refugees from a distant moon as they struggle to adapt to their new homes and lives. Using found objects, ink on paper and altered mirrors, along with natural samples of lichen and moss, the works reexamine the classic "alien invasion" story and it's misguided parallels and comparisons in discussions of invasive species and of human migration. They are based on The Forgotten Invasion; a series of science fiction artist books that draw on themes of invasion and reclamation, collective amnesia, and cultural abandonment.

  • Laura Priebe
    July through September 2017 - Riverside Park
    From the show "Waves, Impressions, Traces"

    Laura PriebeJuly through September 2017 - Riverside ParkFrom the show
    Laura grew up with nearby woods and water that were alive with friends. Her sculpture and drawings fulfill a quest to protect the freedom within this land, within this water, for all life. Her artwork is a language constructing abstract sensuality and realistic representation of natural forms and elements, teaching love and respect for the needed assurances all living things on earth require. To this day, all life on earth depends on water. History of the Silurian period, when this area was completely covered in water, has added for her another adventure into the water critters living then, based on fossils.

    The Globe Weaver is Jenie Gao's most recent series of prints and drawings that together tell the story of what it means to be local in a globalized world. This story is told through animals in urban and rural settings, each one navigating its own complicated relationship with the world. Some thrive. Some adapt. Some struggle to survive. Some fight to make a life again, after past threats of displacement, disease, and genocide. Many assimilate. Still others enjoy impressive and precarious success, challenging the stigmas they can't ever seem to shake.

    The Superfund Project is an emergent archive of environmental pollution in Wisconsin. Many of these sites are located within inner city neighborhoods labeled as Environmental Justice areas and defined as communities with high populations of low-income, minority or tribal residents who may endure a lop-sided share of the nationʼs environmental waste and pollution problems. Milwaukeeʼs Riverwest and Harambee neighborhoods are defined as Environmental Justice areas and home to two Superfund Sites along with numerous Brownfields.

    Jumping Fox - James SteenoJuly through September 2016 - Riverside ParkFrom the show
    Painting with watercolor can be a challenge as water tends to move around, but that same changeable nature can lead to many great accidental visual discoveries. I love to paint local landscapes and wildlife, and enjoy hearing the stories people tell of Wisconsin. My works are on a scale similar to the nooks and crannies where stories are shared.

    From the show "Symbiotic"

    Janelle GramlingJune through September 2016 - Menomonee ValleyFrom the show
    In my wall-hung sculptures, fiber, wood, and clay are combined in very deliberate and simple ways intended to make the viewer ponder it’s construction. Themes of ecology, balance, and interconnectedness speak through the ways in which strands of fiber weave their way though geometric forms in clay and wrap around branches of found driftwood.

    Generation 3 - Rachel ClarkApril through June 2016 - Riverside ParkFrom the show
    As our population continues to expand, habitats for monarch butterflies, as well as many other organisms, begin to dwindle. An industrial park in Wauwatosa has seen major construction, deterring these butterflies from returning to a once important breeding spot. Despite efforts from locals to protect and improve habitat, the butterfly numbers are not the same as they once were. Created in response to the continuing loss of monarch butterfly habitats, this exhibit draws attention to the value of urban natural areas as sanctuaries for these beautiful butterflies.

    How Strong Is an Ant - Carol SchwartzApril through June 2016 - Riverside ParkFrom the show
    Nature inspires every creative step I make and continually surprises and astounds me.

    Underworld - Cynthia Brinich-LangloisJanuary through March 2016  - Menomonee ValleyFrom the show
    The lithographic prints tell a story that begins on the tundra, with the drying up of rivers and ponds, but the series expands to include diverse habitats, and the land itself begins to disintegrate. The work depicts a journey through changing environments, with surreal geographies suggesting an unsettled future.

    Bats Over the River - Timothy HaglundOctober through December 2014 - Riverside ParkFrom the show
    Timothy Haglund is primarily a plein air painter. He works in nature, at night, a time that is unique and not always experienced by outdoor enthusiasts. Nature at night is a magical, mysterious time where one’s awareness of their surroundings is heightened, and one’s presence in the landscape feels noticeably alone. It is a time to come to know the land one exists within. The time, the mood, that stillness is alive in the subtleties of these painted night-scapes.
