John S. Miller: Flatland, a Graphic Exploration of Space and Volume Madison based artist, John S. Miller, is fascinated by the intimate connection between our eyes and minds, especially in the ways we can form a mental image of three-dimensional space from two dimensional visuals. Working primarily in screen and digital printing, these new works by Miller demonstrate his exemplary ability to translate veristic scenes and objects into prints, using the printing processes to enhance the extraordinary capacity of our vision. Group Show: Gilded For thousands of years artisans around the globe have been using gold and other metals to imbue objects with an elevated sense of significance and value. Attracting the viewer’s eye with its unparalleled ability to capture and reflect light, precious metals often carry connotations of the otherworldly and divine. In this group exhibition, artists working in a wide range of three- and two-dimensional media employ gilding and other metal work techniques to play off of this practice’s rich history. Gilded will include works by Kelli Hoppmann, Paul Nitsche, Alicia Czechowski, Richard Jones, Ryan Myers, Melanie Sherman, Reid Schoonover, Craig Clifford, Jill Baker Gower, Erica Schlueter, Ali Kauss, Jessica Calderwood, and Juliane Shibata. In No. 5: Make a Good Impression: Work from Members of Vox Populi Print Collective Madison based print collective, Vox Populi, showcases a range of print types from national and international artists. Established in 2017 by cofounders Barry Roal Carlsen and Peter Hopkins, Vox Populi, as its name “voice of the people” suggests, seeks to represent a snapshot of public opinion through artists’ responses. Members of the collective not only contribute but also curate and fund exhibitions across the US and abroad. This exhibition is provided in part by a Dane Arts Grant and will also host lectures and workshops, a schedule for which will be posted to in the near future.
