The Ultimate Timeline
Annual Artist in Residence Exhibition
This will be the final exhibition in the RedLine Milwaukee gallery.
Exhibition runtime: May 16 - June 29, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, May 17, 6pm to 9pm
Since its inception in 2009, visual art incubator non-profit RedLine Milwaukee developed a national reputation. Beginning at a time when there was nothing like it in Milwaukee, RedLine was the first to offer programming that featured artistic professional development and social justice art workshops for all ages. The gallery at RedLine was named “Best of Milwaukee” by the Shepherd Express in 2017 and 2018. Sadly, after exactly a decade of success, on July 2019 RedLine Milwaukee will no longer continue as a non-profit and gallery space.
“Ultimate TimeLine: RedLine’s Final Exhibition" features the work of 17 artists-in-residence before they depart the RedLine program: Kerri Root, Blanche Brown, Chad Alexander, Emily Belknap, Jake Hill, Joshua Cowell, Julie VonDerVellen, LaSonia Ragsdale, Mark Rhomberg, Melanie Ariens, Sara Shuler, Stephanie Copoulos-selle, Anja Notànjà Sieger, Tara Monnink, Reid Sancken, William.Hurst.Artist, Marc Tasman and Dara Larson.
In the 10 years of RedLine’s operation over one hundred artists moved forward in their careers through the Artist-in-Residence program, thousands of school-aged children and college students engaged in printmaking workshops covering cultural and social justice topics, and internationally recognized artists Tomas Vu Daniel, Justin Cooper, Nathanial Donnett, Heimo Wallner, Willie Birch, JoAnna Poehlmann and Terese Agnew were some of the exhibiting artists in the RedLine Gallery.
While the Milwaukee art scene is in a constant state of change, the closing of RedLine marks the end of an important era.
