John Bergmeier & Paula Schulze

MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin Lutheran College is hosting John Bergmeier of Michigan and Milwaukee native Paula Schulze in a joint exhibition of printmaking and mixed media works on September 18 through October 30 in the Schlueter Art Gallery.

Bergmeier is intrigued by life's "intertwining of so-called coincidences and the selective road that we all have to travel." His earth-toned mixed media works layer symbols and found artifacts creating memorials of personal and Biblical narratives.

Paula Schulze's soft monochromatic charcoal drawings and mezzotints explore how formal elements create order in space. Her abstract, patterned work draws inspiration from pre- and early-Renaissance ornamentation and Islamic geometry rooted in sacred architecture.

An opening reception and artist lecture is scheduled for Friday, September 18 from 6-8 p.m. in the Schlueter Art Gallery. Both events take place in the Center for Arts and Performance, 8815 W. Wisconsin Avenue. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 9 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 1-9 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

Wisconsin Lutheran College is an independent Christian college in Milwaukee that is recognized for its academic excellence and Christian leadership tenets.
