MOWA On The Lake
MOWA collaborates with Milwaukee’s premiere lakefront retirement community Saint John’s On The Lake to further awareness of Wisconsin art and artists. The gallery features four exhibits every year and runs in conjunction with Milwaukee’s Gallery Night and Day. Opening receptions and artists’ talks are part of the celebration and help create more awareness and appreciation for the work.

Summer Dances, Monotypes by Jan Serr
July 24–October 8, 2014
Jan Serr, Summer Dances #1, Monotype on paper, 2014
Initially, Jan Serr imagined a career as a mezzosoprano. However, a drawing class taught by Schomer Lichtner at UW-Milwaukee changed her life. Early on, Schomer encouraged her to explore figurative work and it has been an enduring element in her art ever since. In Summer Dances she concentrates on figures that explore the body in motion with expressive, gestural lines. This new group of prints radiates color and celebratory movement that will have you tapping your toes.
The Museum of Wisconsin Art On The Lake is now part of the Milwaukee Museum Mile, a collaboration of five museums along Lake Michigan, on Milwaukee’s historic East Side. milwaukeemuseummile.org
