Milwaukee – Artists Ariana Huggett and Steven Lubahn present Elements of Being from September 5 through October 3, in the Schlueter Art Gallery at Wisconsin Lutheran College.

Huggett and Lubahn are both investigators of the human psyche – yet each presents their findings in a unique way. Huggett’s oil paintings embody form as a powerful language. They portray individuals through the objects they accumulate within their personal surroundings. Lubahn explores abstract ideas through drawing. The structure of his work is poetic and lyrical resulting in psychologically charged black and white figurative renderings. Whether it is an inspection of a human or the absence of one, both approaches effectively reveal elements of being.

Learn more about these two local artists and their recent work by attending the artist lecture on Friday, September 5 at 3:30 p.m. in the Reichel Lecture Hall. An opening reception will be held following the lecture from 6 – 8 p.m. in the Schlueter Art Gallery. Both venues are located in the Center for Arts and Performance, 8815 West Wisconsin Avenue. For more information and gallery hours visit or call (414) 443-8873.

Wisconsin Lutheran College is a four-year, Christian liberal arts college located on the west side of Milwaukee.
