Milwaukee Sketch Club at Bluemels 3/15/19

This would be an interesting place to paint outside as long as we could stay out of the way.

It's a little small inside if everyone comes.

Too much fun talking and drawing.
Nearly forgot to get our picture

Next Friday we are back to Starbucks on 76th St. in Greenfield

Upcoming Milwaukee Sketch Club Art Show

From: Thomas Piedt

Hi everyone 

Bonnie Bruch has set up an art show at Inspiration Gallery located at 1500 S. 73rd St. West Allis.  Initial information is included below as sent  to Bonnie by Erico Ortiz - Founder of the  gallery. Further information will  be provided  as more is known.

Note: All questions should be emailed to Bonnie Bruch ( Milwaukee Sketch Club show coordinator) at  Do not email Art or myself as the information may get confused.

Message from  Eric Ortiz :

Artwork installed May 1 or May 2.
Opening Reception, Sunday, May 5... times to be determined
Closing Reception, Sunday, May 26... times to be determined
Artwork uninstalled on May 28

-    Artwork should be framed - gallery wrapped is acceptable for oils and acrylics on canvas. All artwork should be set up for wire hanging.

Number of pieces - per Bonnie: 2 small or 1 large. Frame of reference: large 24" x 36" 
FYI...May is Mental Health Awareness Month.   I am participating in a city-wide effort with a wide variety of organizations in West Allis.  They are hosting several events throughout the city centered on that theme.  These include lectures, book review, a film, yoga, keynote, workshops throughout the month... and even a painting party at Inspiration Studios on May 9 (led by Rosie Hartmann) called "Painting My Emotions."
If the MSC could keep that theme in mind when submitting their artwork entries, that would help to support the city's efforts.

Note: All questions regarding the show should be emailed to Bonnie Bruch  ( Milwaukee Sketch Club show coordinator ) at
 Thanks Tom

Judy & Jan Exhibit at ReVision Gallery Mar 1-31, 2019

From: Judy Grochowski <>

Jan Kruk and I are having a joint exhibit next month and we’re so jazzed to be doing this!  
This is so significant to me, as Jan was the first real friend I made at Stritch my freshman year when we were both Art majors.
She influenced my transfer to the University at Whitewater, introduced me to Jane Grzesk (some of you will know why this name is significant-if you don’t, just ask) and we have had many laughs and tears over the years.  I am blessed to call her friend and this show is one more shared adventure.

Some of you are too far to travel to this show (just wanted to share what’s up with me these days) and I know some of you already have a commitment that evening. Everyone else: we hope you consider attending our opening and if not, please keep us in mind that evening.  Fingers crossed for nice driving weather!
Also know that I would be happy to go with you to the gallery any time it’s opened during the run if you'd care to do that.

Feel free to forward this invite to anyone who might be interested.
This is a terrific gallery and I know you’ll enjoy the Art on display there-Marjorie, the owner has quite an eye.

There is a parking lot adjacent to the gallery on the south.
