Sheboygan: The works of five emerging Wisconsin artists will be on display at the University of Wisconsin Sheboygan Fine Arts Gallery.

The display titled, “Kick a Hole in the Sky” is a collaboration with The Frank Juarez Gallery in Sheboygan.

Exhibiting artists include: Ray Easley (Madison), Rachel Hausmann (Milwaukee), Ross Stevenson (Waukesha), Sara Willadsen (Sheboygan Falls), and Ryan Woolgar (Milwaukee).

The show runs September 1 through September 25, 2016, with a reception planned for Thursday, September 8 (5:30-8pm). The gallery is located in the Fine Arts Building at the UW-Sheboygan campus located at One University Drive, Sheboygan. The display is open to the public with gallery hours Monday- Thursday 8am-9pm and Friday 8am-6pm.

Ray Easley a native of Arkansas, earned his B.A. at the University of Houston, and earned a M.F.A. from UW-Madison. His most recent work is grounded in the exaggeration of the human form using obscure materials. He currently works out of his studio in Fall River, WI.

Rachel Hausmann is an artist and coordinator living and working in Milwaukee. She received her B.F.A. from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Her practice focuses on discovering the validity of painting in a contemporary world. Hausmann is one of eight emerging artists in After School Special, a semi-nomadic artist collective based in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee.

Ross Severson is a native of Milwaukee, working as a self-taught artist for the last 15 years, primarily doing minimalist color field paintings on raw canvas to create subtle and organic abstractions. The main focus of his recent work has been to compliment his interests in the aesthetic of Mid Century Modern design. Sara Willadsen, Sheboygan, earned a B.A. in Studio Art and Graphic Arts from Lakeland College and a M.F.A. in Painting from Northern Illinois University. Working mainly with paint and various site-specific found materials, her work explores concepts of abstract spaces and structures guided by her surroundings.

Ryan Woolgar is a painter currently living in Milwaukee. He received his B.F.A. from the Peck School of the Arts at UW-Milwaukee. His most recent work narrows the viewer’s focus to the subject’s current state of mind by simplifying the environment the figure occupies.
