A Sense of Place

February 27 to April 24

Opening reception: February 27, 2015, 6 to 8 p.m

Leon Travanti, James Smessaert,
Elizabeth Carr Whitmore, Eddee Daniel

Wisconsin artists present their perspective on place, whether a geographical location or in the mind. Travanti's paintings reflect his travels to Asia, inspired by "the rhythms, patterns and colors of exotically decorated people, animals and architecture." Smessaert's wood constructions connect with early recollections of tree and forest, and "the free play of childhood that still lives within him." Whitmore's series of "felted wool landscapes detail her exploration through unfamiliar landscapes of Eastern Europe and South America in conjunction with Wisconsin imagery." Daniel's photographs "explore the intersection of nature and humanity." Together the artists are represented in various art collections locally, nationally and internationally, and have years of experience in exhibitions and artist residencies.
