Recent Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) alumnae Ariana Vaeth and Caitlyn Doran are two up-and-coming painters to watch.  Vaeth explores the melodrama of everyday life with paintings that are an autobiographical look at her own transition into adulthood. Doran’s paintings of everyday moments exude a dreaminess or contemplative mood. Her unique visual narratives are open to interpretation and provide the viewer with an opportunity for storytelling.

This exhibition is held at: Saint John’s On The Lake
1800 N. Prospect Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53202
Open and free to the public every day, 10:00–5:00

Contemporary fiber artist Pat Kroth explores transparencies and layers through a myriad of found objects collected for their texture, color, or personal significance. These objects include candy wrappers, buttons, jewelry, and toys. Kroth sews the objects and fabric together to create abstract compositions that are equal in both physical and psychological depth.
