Peninsula School of Art will open its latest exhibition, Dynamic Duos: Art of Collaboration, on April 8 with a free public reception, 4:30-6 pm, at the school at 3900 Cty F in Fish Creek. The exhibition will run through May 28.
Dynamic Duos features nine artist pairs – some local, some from farther away – who work in different media to create one cohesive work. The artist pairs are Ginnie Cappaert and Jill Birschbach (Evanston, Illinois); Steven and Arlene Stanger; Anne Kelly and Mary Beth McGinnis (Chicago); Renee Schwaller and Jeanne Kuhns; Christy Kelly-Bentgen and Karen Gallup (Ann Arbor, Michigan); Meg Lionel Murphy and Robin Millard; Shan Bryan-Hanson and Scott Leipski (Gladstone, Michigan); Julia Redwine and Dale J. Vanden Houten (St. Paul, Minnesota); and Tom Friese (Green Bay) and David Graham (De Pere).
“What’s key to successful art collaboration is the conversation between the artists that unlocks each artists’ creative potential and benefits both artists,” said Catherine Hoke, executive director of Peninsula School of Art (peninsulaschoolofart.org). “What you will have when you are finished is a visible record of the give-and-take in the artistic conversation that has manifested itself into a piece of art.”
