An Exhibition Inspired by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center Collection ARTspace at The Shops at Woodlake Kohler
All works are available for purchase. Arts Center members receive a 10% discount.
As part of our yearlong celebration of 50 years of art at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, ARTspace connects works by five contemporary artists to works housed in our collections. These works were not created in reaction or response to our collections; they were made unbeknownst to it in a separate time and space. However, the work bears a resemblance, a likeness in style, material, or concept.
Barbara Gilhooly (CO) makes both two- and three-dimensional pieces. Her metal wall-hanging sculptures and vibrant wooden circular discs are reminiscent of the works of Emery Blagdon. Ayn Hanna (CO) explores drawing and mark making, crafting richly drawn active surfaces akin to the line work and storytelling of Yoko Sekino-Bove, a 2014 Arts/Industry Pottery artist-in-residence.
Hannah Niswonger (MA) adorns many of her ceramic pieces with imagery of birds, a subject beloved by Albert Zahn, the “birdman” of Door County, Wisconsin. Finally, Erica Stankwytch Bailey’s (NC) and Jane Pellicciotto’s (OR) jewelry makes artful use of natural forms and geometric shapes, a quality found in much of Mary Nohl’s work.
LIKENESS is on view only at ARTspace at The Shops at Woodlake in Kohler Village. Celebrate 50 years of art at the Arts Center by taking home a handmade work of art today. Your purchase directly supports the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and its programs.
