Racine Wisconsin Art
Kenosha and Racine, Wisconsin, are located on the fascinating shores of Lake Michigan and have a vibrant local arts community. I spent the last weekend immersing myself in "Get Art," an annual festival of local artists, musicians and artists from across the state. In recognition of the beauty, importance and interesting southeast Wisconsin, the organization is deeply embedded in the community and works with local students and teachers. They also host a variety of events, such as the annual art fair and art festival, but I have been left with a strong sense of pride and appreciation for the local art community and its history.
After hearing about the museum for a few years, I was glad to see it first hand. The Racine Art Museum not only shares its collection, but also houses artists throughout the year. Art education programs are brought to the region in artistic vehicles loaded with materials and materials and bring children and adults of all ages the joy of creating art.
Although the local studios are only open to the public during events like Get Art, I recommend visiting local galleries and shops when visiting the area. The exhibition PEEPS is on sale at the Racine Art Museum and can be viewed without a ticket. We also visited the Lemon Street Gallery, which showcases art by an impressive number of local artists. A copy costs $29.95 and can be ordered online or by calling the museum shop at 262-638-8200.
The Racines Museum of Local History is dedicated to preserving the materials of our culture and to conveying the stories of people, places and things of interest to the local community. To raise funds for the exhibition, the Toomey Co. is selling a limited number of artworks by local artists in limited editions. About 30 percent of these artists will donate their works to our museum, and the small fee for the gallery itself is a great way to validate our cultural capital. Toomesy & Co. offering a wide range of art, ceramics, jewelry, furniture, clothing, accessories and more.
Carrie Breitbach and Kristi Dahm were selected as one of 95 Wisconsin artists represented inWatercolor Wisconsin. The Racines Museum of Local History, the largest museum of its kind in the USA, also includes the museum's contemporary artisan holdings. More than 50 people are represented at the exhibition, who are courageously innovative in the fields of modern art and design.
The second day of Get the Arts highlighted 20 different places in Kenosha and we had a great time. We also visited a local artist studio where local artists painted pianos using the KenOSha keys, as well as the art gallery of the Racines Museum of Local History.
Lloyd Cotsen commissioned works from 2004 to 2013, and this year's exhibition is on view at the Racines Museum of Local History, where works by local artists and works by artists from home and abroad are on display. The Racine Art Museum, a nonprofit organization, is organizing a traveling exhibition of works by local, state and international artists.
The following art studios and galleries will also be showcasing their work: the Racine Art Museum, the Racines Museum of Local History, the Art Gallery of Wisconsin, and the International Art Center of Milwaukee, to name but a few.
The museum's 1966 "Watercolor Wisconsin" exhibition established the Wustum Museum as a center for watercolor activities in the Midwest. Visitors who like to draw watercolours from the collection of the Racines Art Museum and other local artists are free from 4 to 8 pm. The museum also has an extensive collection of artworks by artists from Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin State University of Wisconsin-Madison. Free admission to the Museum of Local History and the Art Gallery of Milwaukee is available from 4 to 8 p.m. to all visitors to the museum to enjoy an exhibition of paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, photographs and other works by local artists from Wisconsin and other countries! At the Racines Art Museum, also at 441 Main Street, Mark Hertzberg, Racines' own author, will present his new book "The Art of Frank Lloyd Wright: The Life and Times of William F. Wright, "6 to 8 p.m.
Together, Kenosha and Racine invite the public to meet their artists, learn about their methods, and even visit their studios during Get Art Weekend. Get Arts Studio Tour, which has just finished its 7th annual event, invites the public to get in touch with local artists and see how they work to create art in their studio. The Racines Theatre Guild also hosts a number of nationally acclaimed theatre productions such as "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Racine" as well as a variety of other productions.
It's an incredible weekend where artists are fully engaged in showcasing their talents and discussing their process. This is a great opportunity for art lovers, artists, the community as a whole and also for the public.
