Frank Juarez Gallery celebrates 5 years

The Frank Juarez Gallery is happy to announce that it will be celebrating its 5th year in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. A huge thanks to all that have supported FJG since its inauguration at Landmark Suites and to those that have started to support us since the gallery’s move to downtown Sheboygan. 

Here is a video highlighting some of the gallery happenings since 2011. 

Cultural Motifs Reception at the Frank Juarez Gallery. Curated by Karly Kainz.

20141213_180532 copy

For the first time in the gallery’s history it turned over its space to a high school gallery intern. For the past two years the gallery has been implementing a high school gallery internship through Sheboygan North High School. Interns are introduced to the world of running a successful gallery. Duties involved are such as but not limited to: greeting the public, promoting via social media, writing press releases, selecting works, installing works, deinstalling the work, packaging the work, attending art-related events, and so on. 

This semester I had the opportunity to work with senior art student, Karly. Since September she has been exposed to various responsibilities knowingly that she will have to do a major project for her final exam. Her final exam was to curate her own exhibition, which she titled, “Cultural Motifs”. Karly writes, “This exhibition is inspired by high school students’ cultural backgrounds. The art on exhibit will be based on the idea of motifs, which are decorative patterns found in fabric, designs and architecture. The purpose of this show is to embrace all cultures in the Sheboygan area and for students to be aware of the beauty found within their cultures”. 

On Saturday, December 13, her hard work paid off. She had a great turnout. It was nice to see the student artists, parents, administrators, family, friends, and the general public in attendance. The student artist were truly the stars of the show. At 6pm, Karly gave her curator’s talk. You could hear a pin drop it was so quiet. She did a fabulous job. 

Sheboygan is a great place to foster the visual arts and supporting the future of tomorrow. 

What a great way to end 2014!

Cultural Motifs ends December 17, 2014. 

Gallery hours are Saturdays from 10am-4pm.

High School Art Exhibition Celebrates Cultural Diversity at the Frank Juarez Gallery

Frank Juarez Gallery is pleased to announce its last exhibition of 2014. This show features photography, ceramics, drawings, paintings, and sculptures by high school art students from Sheboygan Christian, Kohler and Sheboygan North. This exhibition is curated by Karly Kainz, fall 2014 high school gallery intern.

Join us for an artist reception on December 13 from 5 to 8pm with a curator talk at 6pm. The gallery is located at 1109 North 8th Street in Sheboygan. This exhibition runs from December 6- 27, 2014.

This exhibition explores high school artists’ cultural backgrounds. Growing up in a town that has many different ethnicities, Karly has learned to recognize the true beauty of culture. She also has a love for detailed patterns and designs because of how eye catching and memorizing they can be. By combining the two ideas of patterns and culture, Karly has come to the idea of Cultural Motifs.

Gallery hours are Saturdays from 10am-4pm and by appointment. Open to the public.
