Pop-Up Gallery Event: "In Memory of Chester H. Sheard"
Oct 14 | 4-9 pm | Mathis Gallery
The Mahone, Barker and Sheard families welcome you to a pop-up gallery event. The exhibit features Chester Sheard, the brother of Mary Lou Mahone and Leroy and Garland Sheard. Born in Kenosha in 1929, Chester was an influential jazz and civil rights photographer. Sheard's black-and-white photographs vividly captured golden moments in jazz and blues. His camera lens chronicled the civil rights movement and the drama of human struggle including the Poor People's campaign. His most celebrated photograph graced the cover of B.B. King's 1971 album Live in Cook County Jail. Jesse Garza of the Journal Sentinel, recently wrote, "Sheard's use of natural light captured the furrowed brow of Coltrane;the air-blown cheeks of Dizzy Gillespie;the joyful grimace of B.B. King;the well-defined muscles of Muhammad Ali." Free parking for this event is available in Lot B and C. For more information, contact the Rita Box Office at 262-595-2564
Daniel Maw - 'The Town"
October 19 - January | Mathis Gallery
Opening Reception: Oct 19 | 6-8 pm
An excerpt from Daniel Maw's Exhibition Statement reads: "Autobiography and explorations of memory are concepts I've embraced in many aspects of my creative practice. Although the final product is of interest, the process of developing each piece is similarly important. I consult family and friends while formulating new works, so each is informed by an assortment of such conversations and stories. This method elicits a range of emotions, as I investigate different moments in my life. I stalk former objects and spaces through old photographs and Google Maps. I recall people, ideas, and places that were once present, and I treat them with as much respect and whimsy as I can muster. The experience is as voyeuristic as it is terrifying."
