Three exhibitions open at the Cedarburg Art Museum on Aug. 30: Michael Santini: Allegorical Journey; Kathie Wheeler: Down a Country Road; and Joseph Friebert: Through the Years, 1945-2000.
Michael Santini: Allegorical Journey. The drawings, paintings, and sculptures of Michael Santini are allegorical portrayals of the constant spiritual and worldly struggle of good versus evil. Santini’s art has won awards of excellence over four decades amidst exhibitions throughout the USA, Switzerland, Spain, and France as well as at numerous venues in Wisconsin, his home since the year 2000.
Kathie Wheeler: Down a Country Road. An array of intimate, rural scenes showcase the 2014 Cedarburg Plein Air Event best-of-show award-winning artist’s exhibition. The paintings of Kathie Wheeler, Viroqua, capture the essence and emotive nature of her outdoor subjects.
Joseph Friebert: Through the Years, 1945 – 2000. Eleven works of artist Joseph Friebert spanning five decades were gifts to the Cedarburg Art Museum from the Joseph and Betsy Ritz Friebert Family Partnership and Kohler Foundation, Inc. From social realist paintings in the 1940s through abstractions in the 1950s to lyrical landscapes and figurative works of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, this American artist showed diversity of subject amidst a limited palette of rich, earthy tones.
