Event Opening Friday, November 1, 2019 at 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Join us for the opening of “A Time of Expectant Hopes,” a collaboration between Pete Railand and Jenna Valoe, including works inspired by 19th century union banners, suffragist banners, and modern day activist banners.
Railand is a printmaker, educator, bike rider, self-taught musician, full time dad and founding member of the Justseeds Artist Cooperative. His work, informed by historical and contemporary printmaking, comes from and is fueled by social and environmental justice activism, music, collaboration, travel, and time spent in forests.
Jenna Valoe is a self-taught textile artist with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropolgy from UW-Milwaukee. She is a daydreamer who attributes her innate fiber skills to the abundance of makers in her ancestry. Considering place-making, symbolism, and magic in daily life, she employs large color planes in unique combinations to capture the calm of skylines and the sacred geometry of nature.
