Something for everyone as March ends
The month goes out with a Pius XI alumni show, edgy contemporary Swiss art, a photography show closing, plus egg-dying.
There’s a little something for everyone this week: a Pius XI alumni show, edgy contemporary Swiss art, a festival of creative makers, a photography show closing, plus egg-dying with natural materials.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27
Sensory Overload: Pius Alumni Gallery Show
Robert V. Carney Performing Arts Center
Pius XI High School
135 N. 76th Street, Milwaukee
Opening reception, 7-9 p.m.
Exhibition continues through May 10.
Art doesn’t have to end in high school, and classes in those formative years can set a student’s feet on a professional path. This exhibition celebrates that truism in the school’s new performing arts center with an exhibition by notable alumni. Featured artists include Brian Kaspr, Payton Cosell Turner, Alison Worman, and Bridget Griffith Evans.
One Merriam-Webster definition of jamboree is “a noisy or unrestrained carouse.” Actually, that is one of several definitions, but is apt in describes the spirit of these events. Another: “a long mixed program of entertainment.”
The large warehouse that is the Makerspace will hold the event, and among the rooms will be displays of visual art, spoken word and poetry, and dance performances including pieces by Danceworks, Milwaukee Ballet, and Choreography on the Spot. The Milwaukee Rep will also be in the house, along with multiple DJs and a live band.
talktalktalk: Tobias Madison & Kaspar Müller
The Green Gallery
1500 N. Farwell Avenue
Opening reception 6-9 p.m.
Exhibition continues through May 19.
The Green Gallery opens a new exhibition with two contemporary artists, both originally hailing from Switzerland. Madison and Müller have collaborated on projects before, and this evening’s opening will no doubt elicit much talktalktalk.
SATURDAY, MARCH 30
1422 N. 4th Street
10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Adults, $10; Children under 12, $5
Explore the springtime ritual of egg dying in this RedLine workshop, where natural egg dyes will be made with fresh and frozen produce. Making designs on the eggs with crayons and berries will add to the fun. All supplies are included in the workshop fee.

Blutstein Brondino Fine Art
207 E. Buffalo Street
Exhibition closes March 30.
It is the last day to see this exhibition of works from Daniels’ Synedoche series, a thoughtful contemplation of nature, structure, architecture, the created and the organic line, articulated through color photography.
