Windows to Heaven
Kelly Steitz
January 19 - February 23, 2018

Artist Kelly Steitz is a 1992 graduate of Milwaukee Area Technical College with an Associate Degree in Commercial Art. Her art has been shown at Andersen Art Center in Kenosha and at Racine Art Museum’s Wustum Museum. Steitz’s artwork has been featured on banners for the Downtown Racine Corporation and in Art Scene Today. Steitz conducts batik workshops at Racine Art Museum.

“Windows to Heaven” is a collection of work featuring batik interpretations of the stained glass windows found in the urban churches of Racine, Wisconsin. Steitz believes that while many of these windows have been neglected over the years, they still hold a certain beauty and charm. According to Steitz, the windows have weathered the storms of life much like much Racine itself.

Grace Verhaeghe - Curated by Nick Ravnikar
Sep 1 –Oct 28 2017

Grace Verhaeghe lived and painted in obscurity alongside nationally acclaimed artists Ruth Kjaer and John Goray in Racine, WI while raising five children. A trove of paintings by the 98-year-old Racine county native was salvaged by realtor and collector Dan Gobis and local poet/scholar/educator Nicholas Ravnikar. This show aims to bring attention to the quality and range Grace?s work in its own right and as reflective of two generations of local artists. In addition working with nonprofits and businesses to find permanent homes for Grace?s art, the proceeds of the art sales will establish a modest scholarship for local parent-artists.Fashionista

The exhibit 'Fashionista' will feature drawings and hand-pulled prints as well as assemblage that pay homage to vintage and couture fashion. Additionally, the exhibit will include handmade fashion accessories such as handmade brooches and hand decorated silk scarves. In order to create a high end boutique atmosphere in the gallery, retro inspired mixed media dresses will be created to be displayed in the gallery window.
