Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day. Villa Terrace has selected a small representation of the work of John Rogers from the extensive collection at the Milwaukee Public Library.

Sculture From the Collection Of The Milwaukee Public Library July 11 - September 14
The Villa Terrace Museum of Decorative Arts is proud to announce a collaborative exhibition of John Rogers plaster sculpture, selected from the collection of the Milwaukee Public Library. Beginning in 1860, John Rogers spent three decades in New York executing a series of “groups,” large sculpted pieces that he advertised and shipped across the United States. Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day. Villa Terrace has selected a small representation of the work of John Rogers from the extensive collection at the Milwaukee Public Library.

Ten Chimneys is the estate lovingly created by theatre legends Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.

Guests are placed in small groups and are led through the estate by knowledgeable docents, who share stories that interpret not only the objects and decor of the estate, but also the lives and values of its remarkable creators, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Often considered “the center of the theatrical world,” luminaries such as Noël Coward, Laurence Olivier, and Katharine Hepburn were all frequent and devoted Ten Chimneys guests. Tours are available from 10:00am-2:30pm, Tuesday through Saturday and 12:00pm-2:30pm on Sunday. Call (262) 968-4110 to make your reservation.

Sculture From the Collection Of The Milwaukee Public Library July 11 - September 14
The Villa Terrace Museum of Decorative Arts is proud to announce a collaborative exhibition of John Rogers plaster sculpture, selected from the collection of the Milwaukee Public Library. Beginning in 1860, John Rogers spent three decades in New York executing a series of “groups,” large sculpted pieces that he advertised and shipped across the United States. Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day. Villa Terrace has selected a small representation of the work of John Rogers from the extensive collection at the Milwaukee Public Library.

Ten Chimneys is the estate lovingly created by theatre legends Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Those who visit, like guests of the Lunts, are welcomed into the Lunts' extraordinary home without the fuss of ropes or barriers. Guests are placed in small groups and are led through the estate by knowledgeable docents, who share stories that interpret not only the objects and decor of the estate, but also the lives and values of its remarkable creators, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Often considered “the center of the theatrical world,” luminaries such as Noël Coward, Laurence Olivier, and Katharine Hepburn were all frequent and devoted Ten Chimneys guests. Tours are available from 10:00am-2:30pm, Tuesday through Saturday and 12:00pm-2:30pm on Sunday. Call (262) 968-4110 to make your reservation.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Sculture From the Collection Of The Milwaukee Public Library July 11 - September 14
The Villa Terrace Museum of Decorative Arts is proud to announce a collaborative exhibition of John Rogers plaster sculpture, selected from the collection of the Milwaukee Public Library. Beginning in 1860, John Rogers spent three decades in New York executing a series of “groups,” large sculpted pieces that he advertised and shipped across the United States. Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day. Villa Terrace has selected a small representation of the work of John Rogers from the extensive collection at the Milwaukee Public Library.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Sculture From the Collection Of The Milwaukee Public Library July 11 - September 14
The Villa Terrace Museum of Decorative Arts is proud to announce a collaborative exhibition of John Rogers plaster sculpture, selected from the collection of the Milwaukee Public Library. Beginning in 1860, John Rogers spent three decades in New York executing a series of “groups,” large sculpted pieces that he advertised and shipped across the United States. Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day. Villa Terrace has selected a small representation of the work of John Rogers from the extensive collection at the Milwaukee Public Library.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Beginning in 1860, John Rogers spent three decades in New York executing a series of “groups,” large sculpted pieces that he advertised and shipped across the United States. Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day. Villa Terrace has selected a small representation of the work of John Rogers from the extensive collection at the Milwaukee Public Library.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Date: Fri-Sep-12-2014

Location: Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co in Walker's Point

Time: 8:00 pm



Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber is a founding member of, and also had spent 6 years of playing banjo and heavy touring with the Milwaukee, WI based "streetgrass" group, the .357 String Band--a group that, despite it's abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity, is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movements. Hard living put together with plenty of downtime has offered more than enough motivation and opportunity for his songwriting, and Huber has continued moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well crafted songs. "The Milwaukee musician and woodworker works alone, unburdened by time or a clouded vision. Whether he’s constructing a song or a piece of furniture, Huber dismantles recovered fragments of the past and meticulously assembles them into modern treasures. His work is rustic yet comfortable, powerful yet modest. His style is distinct. Huber has also been performing with other musicians at many of his shows. “Now that I went on this last tour with a fiddle and an upright bass with me, I really enjoy doing that,” he says. “I just feel comfortable with a live sound where it’s reaching the sound that I’m going for on the album. I’m obsessed with fiddle, so when I can play live and have the fiddle there, I feel like a lot of the show revolves around that. I love playing with bass and fiddle. Those are the primaries that I wish would always be there.” milwaukeerecord.com....Chicago's Jeff Shepherd & the Jailhouse Poets open the show!...http://www.reverbnation.com/jailhousepoets....and Nashville's Rachel Kate opens the opening of the show!!....http://www.reverbnation.com/rachelkate

Beginning in 1860, John Rogers spent three decades in New York executing a series of “groups,” large sculpted pieces that he advertised and shipped across the United States. Taking advantage of rail and commercial networks, Rogers contributed to a mass market for common images. As wedding gifts, as narrative documents, and as signals of Victorian respectability, Rogers became the most popular artist of his day. Villa Terrace has selected a small representation of the work of John Rogers from the extensive collection at the Milwaukee Public Library.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.
