Kettle Art Presents: “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner”
Opening Reception: Friday, June 16, 5-8pm
Clumpner’s work continues to explore the implications of America as a “Christian nation.” Working primarily in paint and collage, he depicts symbolic narratives built around portraiture. Using newspaper and advertisements as source material, Clumpner looks to our contemporary existence to find the maddening, the ironic, and the absurd. He uses this imagery to create secular icons of morality inspired by the stained glass windows and illuminated manuscripts that were ever-present in his upbringing. Using these same symbolic elements mixed with contemporary imagery, he creates something both new and familiar.
As Clumpner explains:
We have declared ourselves a Christian nation, but problematically the generosity, sacrifice, and love of our Christian saints do not align with the needs of contemporary America. We will need new saints. Saints of greed and division. Saints that tear apart man and nature, looking for every lucrative resource, and then building walls to protect that wealth. With that in mind, I have created this monument.
Opening Reception: Friday, June 16th, 5 to 8pm

The Arlington Museum of Art and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are proud to present the current exhibit, Scenes of the Nativity. This collection of 27 lithographs and woodblock prints from the16th and 17th centuries features artwork from Rembrandt, Albrect Dürer, Peter Paul Rubens, and more. This amazing exhibit tells the story of the Nativity through art in a way most people haven’t seen. So bring the family and come visit to see this incredible collection of art.
Additionally, our Executive Director, Chris Hightower, will be putting on a lecture series over the Nativity Story. This will be a multi-part lecture series, each one covering a different part of the Nativity Story.
The dates and subjects for these lectures are:
November 27 – The Annunciation
December 4 – The Visitation & The Journey
December 11 – The Adoration
December 18 – The Nativity & The Holy Family
In addition to our Scenes of the Nativity exhibit, the Museum is also hosting a wonderful collection of artwork on loan from the Collection of the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art by Oklahoma Native Derald Swineford. This collection of 40 pieces of Western themed, Christmas artwork is a perfect companion piece to our other exhibit.
