Kind of Abject

The Green Gallery presents "Kind of Abject," a show of paintings curated by Milwaukee artist Leshitski, opening Friday, Dec. 26, 8-11 p.m.

The show includes paintings by:
Leshitski (Milwaukee)
Olga Rose (Toronto)
Kao Xiu (Beijing)
Nicholas Frank (Milwaukee)
Roni Lane (Eau Claire)
Monroe Dock (Portland)
Louisa Clark (Houston)
Steven Burnham (Milwaukee)
Evan Keller (New York)

When gallery owner John Riepenhoff asked Leshitski why he wanted the show to be about abjection, Leshitski said, "Well, it's not really about that, I guess. I don't know. I couldn't figure out whether a truly abject person could still have a sense of humor about things." The paintings in the show are meant to be funny, but with a touch of lost optimism hanging over things.

The Green Gallery West is located at
631 E. Center St. 3rd floor
Milwaukee, WI 53202
