Blietz Exhibit Opens at Plymouth Arts Center

A fine art exhibit opened to the public in Gallery 110 North of the Plymouth Arts Center on Oct. 5. YARD: The Art of Craig Blietz, fills the gallery with original, oversize paintings of domestic farm animals.

Craig Blietz is a full time artist living and working in Northeast Wisconsin, and best known for rural and agrarian inspired imagery. Blietz’s paintings represent a surreal interpretation of animals in the ‘pastoral scene’ suggesting much about the relationship of the animals to one another and the resulting parallel to human behavior.

Blietz says, “I have used animals in my work for many years. There is a strong behavioral correlation between the animal world and human world. The animals provide an empathetic image that enables a gateway for the viewer into the abstract formal qualities of my work.”

Plymouth Arts Center, located in downtown Plymouth, is open Tuesday through Saturday, 12 – 4 pm, and Sunday 1 – 4 pm. Admission is free.
