2016 Annual Members Show
The style of the artwork varies as much as the medium.
Milwaukee, WI – Walker’s Point Center for the Arts is proud to present our 2016 Annual Members Show. The exhibition opens on Friday, September 2, with a reception from 5–9 pm, and runs through October 8.
Our non-juried Annual Members Show is dedicated to showcasing the artwork of our vastly talented artist members. Over 150 pieces in a wide range of media are presented salon-style throughout the gallery, creating an exuberant display of color, texture, form and flow. The style of the artwork varies as much as the medium.
The opening reception in itself is a creative salon. Art lovers and exhibiting artists, budding and esteemed, gather to converse, connect and share creative ideas and techniques. For many artists, WPCA’s Annual Members Show has become a tradition and one their favorites to show artwork.
2016-17 Featured Members Artists. Each year, a juror selects four outstanding artists based on their artwork in the Annual Members Show – each awarded a solo Featured Member Exhibition. Each exhibition opens on Gallery Night and runs for approximately 10 weeks. We are honored to have artists, curator and educator Mark Lawson as this year’s juror. The four artists selected will be announced during the opening reception on September 2. The 2015-16 Featured Member artists — Adam Stoner, Arcadia Katzenberger, Brad Krause and Brian Breider – were selected by juror Josie Osborne.
