Friday 5 to 9 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For a middle-of-winter rush of color, this show will feature seven abstract artists who use color with abandon and conceptual subtlety. The artists include Tom Berenz, Derrick Buisch, Ben Grant, Mark Ottens, Jeremy Popelka, Jason Rohlf and Richard Taylor.
Rohlf has created a work in collaboration with one of my favorite local artists, Greg Klassen, and this experiment alone will drive me
The exhibition CHROMA was featured as a “Best Bet” in Milwaukee Magazine’s January issue. Here is what editor Clare Hanan had to say:
Color Rush Bright, permeating and myriad colors can often be curative in an oppressively cold environment. This month, works of all shades fill Tory Folliard Gallery, including those of metal sculptor Richard Taylor, along with Jason Rohlf’s geometric, dizzying acrylic paintings and Derrick Buisch’s oil abstractions.

The Strange Beauty of Tom Uttech’s Paintings: Now at the Tory Folliard Gallery, they capture a kind of North Woods that doesn’t really exist, though we might wish it did.
The paintings of Tom Uttech immediately bring me back to my early adolescence. Back then I almost lived at the library.

Art City Asks: Tom Uttech
By Shane McAdams, Art City contributor, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Dec. 17, 2014
“It’s ironic that my first exposure to Tom Uttech‘s paintings was in a high-rise on 57th Street in New York City on a late summer day in 2006, that I “discovered” his eccentric paintings inspired by the North Woods in the maw of midtown Manhattan.
