opening reception January 5th 6-9pm
A collaboration between the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and artist and curator Michelle Grabner, this exhibition explores one of the most important spaces for an artist—the studio. Through site-specific installations, Makeshift examines the role of the studio in contemporary art practices. Artists featured include Trenton Doyle Hancock (TX), Jessica Jackson Hutchins (OR), Brad Kahlhamer (NY), Odili Donald Odita (PA), Barbara Rossi (IL), Greg Smith (NY), and Alison Elizabeth Taylor (NY).
Milwaukee artists Sara Caron, Open Kitchen, Sally Nicholason, John Riepenhoff, and a few others will be collaborating with Jessica Jackson Hutchins on a one-night-only performance created specifically for the opening event September 22, 7-9pm.
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.
