May. 30, 2021 @ 10:00 am - May. 30, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
|This is a Recurring Event [see all in the series]
Every day until January 9, 2022
John Michael Kohler Arts Center,
608 New York Avenue, Sheboygan, WI 53081 United States
[map]

Concerned with acts both of construction and deconstruction, painter Annabeth Marks’ work forces a consideration of the boundaries of painting in both process and form. For her contribution to the Return to the Real series, she presents new works—a group of small, dense and richly colored, intimate paintings that are mediations on the psychology of scale, reflecting on conditions of the past year.

Every week until September 25, 2022
John Michael Kohler Arts Center,
608 New York Ave., Sheboygan, 53081 United States

Oakland ceramicist Woody De Othello is best known for his large-scale anthropomorphic figures, which are often humorous portrayals of domestic objects. For Hope Omens, he will present an entirely new body of work. Many of the sculptures were produced using molds that Othello created during his Arts/Industry Pottery residency at the Kohler Co. factory in early 2020. While he was in residence, the world outside the factory began to shift with the beginning of the pandemic. The residency was cut…

Bernard Langlais in Cushing, Maine, 1976. Photo: David Hiser. Can we truly extend the life of an artist-built environment? In the absence of their creators, how do we responsibly care for and maintain these environments? Don’t our established processes and tools for doing so—inventory and documentation, conservation and preservation, evocation and curation—disrupt the “delicate ecology” of these dynamic, private worlds? From the untimely death of Bernard Langlais in 1977 to the inauguration of the Langlais Sculpture Preserve in 2017, his…

Eva Papamargariti: Factitious Imprints

Jan. 23 @ 10:00 am - Aug. 8 @ 5:00 pm
John Michael Kohler Arts Center,
608 New York Avenue, Sheboygan, WI 53081 United States
[map]

Eva Papamargariti’s video Factitious Imprints takes viewers on a journey through a posthuman, postnatural landscape that blurs boundaries between virtual and physical environments and ecosystems. The video presents a hybrid, dystopic dreamscape of digitally rendered scenes and images of real places culled from Google Maps, drones, and handheld recording devices. Its overlapping surfaces—from nonbiodegradable waste to simulations of animals and plants to the artist’s own skin—shift and change form as we move through it. A reflection on the idea of…

High Touch

Jan. 27 @ 10:00 am
|This is a Recurring Event [see all in the series]
Every day until March 13, 2022
John Michael Kohler Arts Center,
608 New York Avenue, Sheboygan, WI 53081 United States

High Touch brings together six artists who embrace technology as a medium and tool to research, ideate, and assemble their intensely handcrafted, resolutely analog artworks. Whether sourcing images from the Internet’s endless scroll or using digital processes to fabricate components of their works, they create highly tangible objects that transform the virtual into the physical.

Allison Wade: The Good Parts

Jan. 27 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
|This is a Recurring Event [see all in the series]
Every day until February 6, 2022
John Michael Kohler Arts Center,
608 New York Avenue, Sheboygan, WI 53081 United States

Constructed from unexpected combinations of handmade and found objects, Allison Wade’s tenuous sculptural works consider the intersection of flatness and form. Her practice relies heavily on balance and tension to explore the structural contingencies of where, and how, elements meet. These formal explorations shape Wade’s singular, idiosyncratic visual language, one that investigates the play between two and three dimensions and the connection between spatial and social relationships. Wade’s process is closely allied with language and writing. Using a grammatical approach…
