Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
"BeingNau" art gallery is no more. Less than three months after opening the gallery/studio on Milwaukee Avenue, "BeingNau" owner Brian Nau, his wife Erin and son Matthew are moving to Park City, Utah where Brian has taken a job at the gallery of artistic nature photographer Michael Fatali.
A glimpse of Fatali's astonishing work is at http://www.fatali.com/
We are sorry to lose these energetic, enterprising and talented South Milwaukee neighbors and the promise their gallery bringing art, music and poetry held for our city. But we are happy and excited about the opportunity and adventure they are about to embark on.
In the meantime, images of ChopArt, which was exhibited at "BeingNau", will still be available at the Farmers Market at 11th and Milwaukee. Some of those images are at www.chopart.net.
Here are a few of ChopArt artist and TV/film editor Chapen Hayslett's other drawings:
"Eye on Armageddon"
"Cheat Like Me"
Unique ChopArt notecards as well as framed and unframed prints will be on display and available for purchase at the market every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Hope to see you there!
