In common use, a facet is one of the small cut and polished faces of a gem or the flat, usually smooth face or surface of an object; it is one element or aspect of something that is both distinct in itself and yet still an integral part of the larger whole.
FACET: Diverse Work by Women in the West brings together the work of five artists who hold some features of their artistic identities and practices in common but create singular bodies of sculptural work. The exhibition aims to explore shared concerns like nature, identity, beauty, material, and process through the diverse work of artists Renee Brown, Natalie Macellaio, Jessica McCambly, Lesli Robertson, and Shannon Sullivan. While each artist’s approach to these key concepts is distinctive, FACET will also draw out important connections that reveal larger formal and symbolic relations among the artworks as a cohesive group.
Arthur Thrall: Tribute to a Master Artist
The paintings and prints of the late Arthur Thrall demonstrate a variety of graphical sources employed by the internationally recognized Wisconsin printmaker. Calligraphy, musical scores, and elegant line all play a role for their gestural, textural, and design quality. The masterful use of exquisite and dynamic line characterizes all of Thrall’s work.
This exhibition was curated by Mary Chemotti, LU Class of 1970 and Curator of Exhibitions at the Cedarburg Art Museum, with the assistance and support of Win Thrall.
