Looking at Local in a New Light
Overture Center’s four galleries create a forum for diverse artistic expression that fosters the growth of local artists, curators and arts organizations. Three galleries radiate off Rotunda Lobby and the Playhouse Gallery serves as lobby for The Playhouse Theater. Overture Galleries are free and open to the public.
Fall 2017 Exhibition Cycle
TUE, SEP 12 – SUN, DEC 3, 2017
Gallery I – All That Remains – Elaine Daily-Birnbaum & Quenten Brown
The abstract works in this exhibition playfully blend reality and dreamlike imagery to create seemingly familiar yet unexplainable forms. Daily-Birnbaum relies on personal experiences to invoke images of interest and intrigue. Brown’s structures morph modern tools and imagery into delicate, otherworldly constructions.
Gallery I sponsored by the Arts Access Fund, a component fund of the Madison Community Foundation, Webcrafters-Frautschi Foundation and by contributions to Overture Center for the Arts.
Gallery II – Unusual Perspectives – Colette Girard & Rose Kratchman
Photography captures reality, yet through unique perspectives it can also transform the ordinary into the unfamiliar. Girard’s images encourage an appreciation of the vividness in the visual world. Kratchman’s black and white photograms beautifully capture the essence of soap bubbles through new perspectives.

Gallery III – Constructs & Consumption – Robert Coberly & Richie Morales
Through painting Coberly and Morales reveal the complexity of contemporary structures, both physical and ideological. Coberly’s architectural abstractions create tapestries of industry and modern city life. Morales reveals the duality of violence and consumerism embedded in materialistic society.
