Promenade Lounge: Free
Join us for an Overture Galleries Reception FRI, JUN 28 from 5 PM – 8:30 PM in the Promenade Lounge and Promenade Hall.
Three galleries run from TUE, JUN 11 – SUN, SEP 1:
Gallery I – Two Alone
Noël Ash & Victoria Maidhof
Maidhof and Ash both capture profound yet relatable moments. Through photography, Maidhof tells the story of a kinship between two individuals from different generations. Ash paints self-portraits that reveal a mother’s mental stress as she suffers through repeated conflict with a small child.
Artist Mothers / Mother Artists: A discussion on Motherhood in the Arts
7 PM | Promenade Hall
How does motherhood affect an artist’s career? How does it affect her work? Join us for a short presentation followed by a discussion with local artists who are mothers. Bring your questions or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gallery II – Soñé una Milpa
Leigh Garcia & Maria Amalia Wood
Using papermaking and printmaking techniques, Soñé una Milpa highlights the narratives of ten
Latina immigrants living in the Madison community. Garcia and Wood’s collaboration creates
interest in stories of immigration, thus inspiring respect for these women and their valuable life
Amate Papermaking (Drop-in Event)
5-8 PM | Promenade Lounge
Leigh Garcia and Maria Amalia Wood invite visitors to join them in the creation of Resiliencia (Resilience), a socially engaged piece that transforms written prejudices towards immigrants into handmade amate paper.
Gallery III – Not to Scale
Robert Lundberg & Jacki Whisenant
Whisenant and Lundberg illuminate subjects that are often overlooked. Whisenant inspires closer inspection of insects, presenting them at a larger-than-life scale that fades to a delicate cut-paper rendering. Lundberg documents the critical infrastructure of water systems, inviting questions about our relationship to water and the societal and cultural implications of this hidden world.
Unauthorized Occupation performance by Robert Lundberg
8 PM | Promenade Hall
Lundberg will perform minimal, meditative pieces for solo double bass accompanied by a 4-panel video exploring multiple scales of water systems to complement the pieces installed in the gallery.
