June 9th - July 28th
Opening Reception June 9th from 5 - 9pm
Madison artist, Kelli Hoppmann, has been painting about human strength and weakness for over three decades. She has an endless curiosity of the world around her and can find inspiration in the familiar, draw drama from the ordinary, and see things that most of us overlook in our everyday lives. The figures in her allegories often don elaborate costumes, and are surrounded by lush environments, beautiful patterns, and vivid color which make it hard to look away even when the themes might be challenging.

In the Cooler:
Richard Jones - Only Connect
Only Connect will be the second installation in the gallery’s cooler space for Madison artist, Richard Jones. Viewed from a distance the space will contain a large wooden structure that upon closer inspection contains openings that reveal charred wooden blocks resembling a city no longer inhabited. Glass clouds illuminate the construction from above, and surrounding it are framed drawings, maps, and other materials related to the natural world. It is up to the viewer to contemplate the connections that exist between these objects and relate them to their own experiences of the world.
