About the Artists
Alyssa Krause’s paintings question the parameters of perception. Her work focuses on the nuances in how an image is recognized. Rules are set up before painting as a way to create a border between herself and the work, making each painting surprising and fresh. Krause is from Milwaukee, where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at UW-Milwaukee in 2019. Her work has been shown locally in Milwaukee and across the Midwest.
LaNia Sproles is exhibiting large cutout mixed media figurative collages. The philosophies of self-perception, queer and feminist theories, and inherent racial dogmas are essential to her work. Sproles, from Milwaukee, graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2017. She recently completed her year as a 2019 Mary L. Nohl fellow and teaching artist in residence at the Lynden Sculpture Garden in Milwaukee. She has a solo exhibition at the Wright Museum in Beloit that runs through April 2, 2021.
Daniel McCullough investigates the atmosphere of place through chance-based approaches to photography. He uses the mysterious space between the camera lens and outside world to make his work. McCullough is a visual artist based in Milwaukee and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2018. He was selected for the Plum Blossom Initiative Bridge Work 04 Professional Development Program from2018-2019. McCullough has shown his work both regionally and nationally.
