Reception Photos - Dual Nature Exhibition at the Frank Juarez Gallery

Thank you for joining us for our reception. Dual Nature runs until May 11, 2019. 


Mark your calendars: Milwaukee Gallery Night & Day, April 26 & 27. We will have special hours on Friday, April 26th from 6-9pm and Saturday, April 27th from 11am-4pm. At 2pm we will have an artist talk with Tony Conrad. Click here to RSVP.

Gallery is open on Saturdays, 11-4pm and by appointment at 920.559.7181. 

In “Dual Nature,”the works of Tony Conrad and Clint Fulkerson clearly share an affinity to pattern as they reference various complex visual systems inspired by nature both physically and metaphorically. More importantly, the paintings and drawings in this exhibition are telling of two artists heavily concerned with process. Conrad’s pattern centric paintings exhibit a relentless commitment to the making and remaking of seemingly similar marks while evoking the nature of meditative states. Fulkerson’s hypnotic detailed disc drawings are influenced by science, math, and systems of organization which manifest a curiosity of an ever-evolving world. 

The Frank Juarez Gallery is located at 207 E. Buffalo Street, Ste. 600, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53202.

Reception Photos - Cadence: New Paintings by Tony Conrad at the Frank Juarez Gallery

If you missed Tony Conrad's reception on September 23rd, there is still time to see his work. We will be open at the upcoming Milwaukee's Gallery Night on October 20 from 6-9pm.

The Frank Juarez Gallery is located at 207 E. Buffalo St., #600, Milwaukee, WI 53202 (inside Material Studios & Gallery). Gallery hours are Saturdays from 11am - 4pm and by appointment.

Cadence ends October 28, 2017. 

In Cadence, Tony Conrad explores his deep interest in pattern, repetitive mark making, and layering of color.  Drawing from various cultural and historical movements, his process of reinventing the hash mark over and over again searches for a place where chaos and harmony coexist.  The meditative nature of this process and consequent imagery describes a journey – not a destination.

Conrad’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States in various solo, group, and invitational exhibitions and has won a number of awards including the Lawrence Rathsack Scholarship and the Frederick R.
