MOWA On The Lake 

MOWA collaborates with Milwaukee’s premiere lakefront retirement community Saint John’s On The Lake to further awareness of Wisconsin art and artists. The gallery features four exhibits every year and runs in conjunction with Milwaukee’s Gallery Night and Day. Opening receptions and artists’ talks are part of the celebration and help create more awareness and appreciation for the work.

Transparency and soft focus imagery often come to mind when people think about watercolors. Sara Strozinsky’s watercolor paintings of nature defy this stereotype. Through vibrant, saturated color and an almost photographic aesthetic, her keen eye and grace with a brush imbue every blade of grass with an unrivaled attention to detail.

Richard W. Patt’s polychromatic landscapes balance abstract and representational depictions of Wisconsin’s farmland and their iconic barns. These are not sleepy, pastoral farms, but ones that pop and vibrate with energy as Patt’s color and geometric patterning merge together to create rich quilt-like compositions.
