The exhibit Jan Serr: A Painters Photographs of India, featuring her photographs from northern and southern India, opened at The Warehouse
on Friday Sept. 13 and will run through Dec. 13, 2019.
With a decades-long career exhibiting both nationally and internationally, Milwaukee-based painter and printmaker Jan Serr presents a new body of work in her show. Jan Serr: A Painters Photographs of India is Serrs first solo exhibition dedicated to her photography. Photographs from northern and southern India depict painterly scenes filled with vivid colors and quiet moments. Like the landscapes, still lifes, and portraits she paints, Serrs eye designs striking images through the lens of her camera.
Serr is a graduate and Distinguished Alumnus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she received her BA and MFA in painting and drawing. Her work is in public and private collections in the United States and Canada, which she was represented by the Marlborough Godard Gallery. She was selected to be part of the Art in Embassies, a program of the U.S. State Department. Her work is in the collections of the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Rahr West Art Museum, the Haggerty Museum of Art, and the Johnson Foundation.
In conjunction with this exhibition, photographs from The Warehouses permanent collection will be on display in dialogue with Serrs work.
On Saturday, Oct. 19th at 1pm there will a formal Artist Talk and presentation with the artist. The event is free and open to the public. RSVP to this event here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/artist-talk-with-jan-serr-tickets-74344902605
