A great friend of mine, Erika Block, has launched an exciting project called The Inkdrop Project. Every week subscribers will receive a special note with words of encouragement and support from creative professionals. What a fabulous way to kick off your week!
Hi, My name is Tina. I’m currently a high school senior. Being an intern at the Frank Juarez Gallery is something I know will help me to not only expand my knowledge and gain experience, but also to help me grow as an artist. My plans after high school includes pursuing a career in graphic design and marketing. Other than school, I enjoy reading, making art and the outdoors.
Tina has taken art all four years and is currently working on her concentration for AP Studio Art. She is one of two high school interns at the Frank Juarez Gallery.
Hello, I’m Annie. Currently I attend Sheboygan North High School as a senior. I’m hoping that working at the Frank Juarez Gallery will help me gain communication skills, real world experience, and knowledge of the art world. Once I finish high school, I plan to major in Illustration or Graphic Design. If I’m not at school, you will most likely find me drawing, swimming, or windsurfing.

Thank you to all that came out to support Stefani and to see the new Frank Juarez Gallery.
Here is a little somethin’ somethin’ put together just for you.
Stefani’s exhibition ends February 8th so there is still time to stop by FJG and check it out.
The Frank Juarez Gallery is pleased to announce the representation of Sheboygan-based painter, Dale Knaak.
Dale’s work explores his fascination with the conventional spaces of the everyday. The ordinary that goes unnoticed. Stripped of embellishments, elegance or charm, the subjects of his paintings stand as a testament of time. Dale sees them as a point of contemplation, a contemporary statement on past and present, kept.
He finds it interesting to take a visual experience, process and reinterpret it as a personal experience.
Dale is a native of Sheboygan , Wisconsin . He moved to Milwaukee after high school to study art. He lived in Milwaukee for 10 years, where he received the basis of his art training. After obtaining a degree in Commercial Art, he went on to study painting and drawing for five years with the late James Prohl of Atelier Prohl.
Currently, he maintains a full-time fine art studio in a 1900 sq/ft warehouse in Sheboygan, WI. He divides his time between fine art drawing and painting, commissioned art, and commercial mural projects.

Frank Juarez Gallery is pleased to announce its first exhibition of the year, “Theory of Forms” featuring sculpture, drawings, encaustic paintings, and video by Milwaukee-based artist, Stefani Quam.
Join us for an artist reception on January 18 from 5 to 8pm with an artist talk at 6pm. The gallery is located at 1109 North 8th Street in Sheboygan. This exhibition runs from January 4 – February 8, 2014.
This exhibition is titled “Theory of Forms” after the philosopher Plato’s theory, which suggests that abstract forms (ideas) shape human reality far greater than the material world of change experienced through the human senses.
Quam has become very conscious of time from one day to the next. It has led her to see the lived experience as very cyclical. Although time is often constructed linearly, the succession of days, seasons, life, prove that constants do exist in spite of ever-present change. She articulates her contention with the unknown and the cyclical nature of lived experience through the use of repetitive shape and pattern in an ever-evolving mix of materials.
As a graduate of Syracuse University’s School of Visual and Performing Arts’ Transmedia Department, Quam’s concentration has been time-based media, including the history, the social/political influence, and the psychology behind its consumption. With the exponential growth of technology, so changes the face of contemporary craft. As a multi-disciplined artist with formal training in both digital and fine arts, her practice is focused on incorporating video art with contemporary installation to create layered, dimensional, time-based space and experience for her audiences. Quam is currently an resident artist at RedLine in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Gallery hours are Saturdays from 10am-4pm and by appointment.
Open to the public.
Our new location is 1109 North 8th Street in downtown Sheboygan. Just look for the orange storefront.
