PETER BARRICKMAN ELWOOD ARMS exhibition and book release at NATHALIE KARG GALLERY, NY

June 18, 2018 - June 23, 2018

Nathalie Karg and the Green Gallery are delighted to present a special one week exhibition of new paintings by the Milwaukee-based painter Peter Barrickman. The show takes its name, Elwood Arms, from an apartment building in Milwaukee that was home to countless artists, writers, and musicians, and was affectionately nicknamed after its caretaker and most senior tenant.

 

The show is comprised of eleven acrylic and oil paintings inspired by buildings such as Elwood Arms and their high-ceilinged lobbies. The transient space of a lobby—a place of continual coming and going—becomes a metaphor for the open narrative potential of painting. Considering the ways a painting simultaneously denies and allows reading, Barrickman’s continual experiments with alternating forms and repeating colors create a transitional visual space in which the public expression of the artist meets the private experience of the viewer. Put in the artist’s own words, “it is a formal renewal that serves to clarify and awaken the subject.”

 

The show will be accompanied by the release of the artist book, Burnt Plastic (Mazagine, 2018).

MARY NOHL AND THE WALRUS CLUB

June 23, 2018 — June 23, 2019

On the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the Mary L. Nohl Fellowship, Mary Nohl and the Walrus Club brings together two important aspects of Nohl’s legacy for the first time.

The first is the Mary L. Nohl Fund, a grant program initiated in 2003 to support artists working in and around Milwaukee. The second is Nohl’s connection to the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, the repository of the Mary Nohl collection and the site steward for Nohl’s home in Fox Point, WI.

Arts Center curators collaborated with Polly Morris, executive director of the Lynden Sculpture Garden and administrator of the fellowship, in selecting eight past recipients of the Nohl Fellowship to participate in the exhibition. The gallery will feature new works by Cecelia Condit, Kim Miller, Sonja Thomsen, Sheila Held, Sarah Luther, Anne Kingsbury, Maggie Sasso, and Robin Jebavy, and Mary Nohl pieces from the Arts Center’s collection.
