Schlitz Audubon Nature Preschool is once again is holding Ash to Art. It is a fundraiser and an opportunity to teach about invasive species, in this case, the Emerald Ash Borer. SANC staff has already begun removing ash trees from the property that are diseased, dying, and will be falling within the next few years. The trees are cut into “cookies” – round cross cuts that are typically 6” in diameter x 1.5” thick. These cookies will be handed out to interested artists. Participants make their cookie from an ash tree into art. We auction off the artwork, and therefore make money for our favorite school. Mark your calendars.

The Modern Landscape exhibition at RedLine Milwaukee is dedicated to the furtherance of artists whose perception of landscapes are innovative, captivating and display expert execution of the concept. Over the course of history landscape paintings have developed from capturing mountain scenes, gently rolling hills, and still water garden ponds to cityscapes and views of urban areas, even venturing further into the abstract. One thing that remains true is that landscapes are one of the most desired genres among art collectors. By giving artists the freedom to determine what defines a landscape, this exhibition will explore and go beyond the boundaries of the traditional landscape, giving viewers a glimpse the state of contemporary landscape painting in the early 21st century.
