Winter Gallery Night in Images

Luckystar Studio hopping on Jan. Gallery Night

The January edition of Gallery Night in Milwaukee this past Friday featured a lot of great, often sublime, new installations and shows but also sported single digit temperatures.  As a result, many hub locations and venues that featured alcoholic warm-ups were popular that night.

Within a three hour timespan, I made it to eight map locations including the centrally-located and multi-tiered Marshall Building, Bryan Cera’s solo show at the northern Third Ward tip of Milwaukee Street, the ice sculptures in the park, and a few other spots before the toes went numb.

Luckily, ThirdCoast Digest has new interns for the winter including photo intern Nickolas Nikolic. He managed to see a few things I did not, including a great photography exhibit at Haggerty Museum of Art, The MIAD show, and the candy buffet at Hot*Pop.

    All of the mainstream press leading up to Gallery Night, and all of it following it, have ignored the Peltz Gallery African-American show–and now, you all are also ignoring it. What the? Really, we all have to put at least a minimum of effort into overcoming the deep-seated biases in Milwaukee. Please, just make the effort to check it out.

    Hi Rebecca, I’m sure you can imagine that we are not oracles who see all. Like other mammals, we need a nudge in the right direction. To that end, we welcome any press announcements or communication from Peltz Gallery. Please, if you know the gallery operators, have them add Erin Petersen to their list. Her addy is epetersen at thirdcoastdigest dot com. Thanks for pointing out the omission, and we look forward to covering the Peltz in April!

    well said Rebecca. The fine art scene press in Milwaukee can be said to reflect “who” you know.
