The Unitarian Universalist Gallery, 10341 Hwy 42 in north Ephraim, is presenting paintings by Stephen Wysocki Dec. 8 – Jan. 26.
The artist lives and works on his family’s bison ranch in Armstrong Creek, Wisconsin, where he paints in acrylic and oil to convey the beauty he sees there every day. He gravitates toward “ordinary structures or roadside junk, rusty and for sale,” expressing his joy in their hard edges and contrasts through the hues and shadows of paint. He creates an atmosphere or mood by playing with the warm and cool tones of color and texturing his canvases, discovering a story as he works.
Wysocki’s work is in the permanent collection of UW-Green Bay. See more at swysockiart.faso.com.
The gallery’s hours are Tuesday – Friday, 1-4 pm; and Sunday, 11 am – 12 pm. Call 920.854.7559 to learn more.
