"Wisconsin is my home and for the last 20 years I have been exploring it looking for a beautiful or tranquil scene to capture with my camera. I like to find places that provide a sense of peace and calm in a busy and hectic world. I'm also an animal lover, I like to photograph all different kinds of animals and show their different personalities. I show my work at art fairs around Wisconsin every summer." – Jessica Curning Kuenzi

Kay Kittell lived and painted in a large rambling farmhouse north of Waupun, Wis., near the Horicon Wildlife Refuge. Kay studied art at Ripon College under Lester Schwartz. Later, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she worked under Robert Grilley, Bill Armstrong and Dean Meeker. Later still, she studied painting with Joanne Kindt and serigraphy with Tom Brady in Oshkosh. She was strongly influenced by the New York School, Georgia O'Keefe, and Helen Frankenthaler. Journeys to California and Alaska, or just looking at scarves provided her with inspiration. "My whole interest in art is the power of shape. I use color to separate the shape and line which floats on the color. Color is covered by tones … tones over the dark areas which give the painting a shimmering quality and patina of surface." – Kay Kittell



The Memory Project: Faces of Joy


The Memory ProjectWhere: University Hospital, 1st Floor, J5/1 Cafeteria Corridor
750 Highland Ave.
Madison, WI 53705

When: January 4-30



We welcome you to this exhibit of portraits showing the faces of 70 Syrian children living in a refugee camp on the border of Syria and Jordan. All of these portraits were created by American teenagers in high school advanced art classes. The art students studied photos of the Syrian children to create paintings and drawings, which were then delivered to the Syrian children as gifts. We are now displaying replicas of these special portraits to promote international friendship and kindness and to celebrate our shared humanity.

"In loving memory of Ryan Jamie Burda, December 14, 1971-February 26, 2017, I will be showing a world he created. I never knew the beauty of a Coral Reef Aquarium until he taught me. When working behind the lens, I saw a beauty that was absolutely breathtaking. I hope you can find peace in this tiny slice of the mystical world of the ocean." – Cindy Popp
