Boundaries

featuring new works by Sara Willadsen

September 8 - October 20, 2018

We will be participating in Milwaukee Gallery Night & Day. 

October 19 from 6-9pm

October 20 from 11am - 4pm with an artist talk from 2-3pm. 

Click here to RSVP for the artist talk. 

With this series, Willadsen’s work deviates from environments and structures to focus on curated, contained objects. By carefully arranging collage materials within specific parameters, she is able to analyze her visual language as well as use this act of simplifying as an agent for clarity. Each composition is made with restraint and reveals an organized, deconstructed view that can typically only be seen early on in her creative process.

Frank Juarez Gallery Artist in Residency Program featuring new works by Sara Willadsen

November 4 - December 16, 2017

During this residency, Sara Willadsen will continue to explore formal aesthetics using handmade collage materials and a variety of mark-making techniques inspired by existing spaces in Sheboygan County. By combining these methods with re-appropriations of her own past work, new environments will emerge throughout the gallery to result in an extensive installation that exhibits her intuitive and spontaneous work process.
