    Nathaniel Stern

    October 17 – November 15, 2014

    Opening & Artist’ Reception: October 17th, 6:00pm – 9:00pm

    Gallery Night & Gallery Day: October 17 & October 18

    In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

    For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

    Artist’s Reception: December 6, 2014, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm;  Artist Talk at 2:00 pm

    Wisconsin native Tom Uttech returns for his ninth solo exhibition at the Tory Folliard Gallery.

    During his trips to the Boundary Waters between northern Minnesota and Wisconsin and the Quetico Provincial Park in Canada, Uttech gathers experiences and memories to fuel his new paintings. Mythic, atmospheric, and astoundingly detailed, this new body of work epitomizes his passionate interest in the​ wilderness.

    In the artist’s own words: “These paintings are all recollections of the magic I have found in the North Woods. They never depict any actual place. They hope to recreate the feelings those places generate in ourselves … I do also mean to be saying something about the richness and diversity of life on this planet and how magically wonderful this all is by packing so many individuals and species into the same place at the same time.​”​

    ​Uttech is the recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters – Award in Art​ and the Wisconsin Visual Art Lifetime Achievement Award.

    His paintings are in museum collections across the U.S. including Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, AK, Milwaukee Art Museum, Honolulu Museum of Art, Tucson Museum of Art, Museum of Wisconsin Art, West Bend, WI, and the Chazen Museum of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
