Many Lives to Wonder

Marƶeń is pleased to present the artwork of Rhea Ewing and Michael Velliquette from July 8, 2016 through September 2, 2016 at 2345 Atwood Avenue Madison, WI. The artist reception will be held on July 29 from 5:00-9:00pm. Marzen will host an artist talk at 7pm and light refreshments will be provided.

Many Lives to Wonder is an introspective exhibition full of color and collage. The artists create from a socially relevant and intrinsically human perspective while embellishing with vivid colors, fluid line work and natural imagery.

Rhea Ewings’s deeply contemplative graphic collages enhanced with traditional media explore our understanding of human ancestry which is heavily influenced by our perceptions of what it means to be human, and our desire for a narrative about our own spiritual history.

Michael Velliquette’s abundant, colorful cut paper works begs viewers to explore the nature of matter, sensation, perception, reaction, and consciousness. His labor-intensive method of making tends to imbue a sort of spiritual language that is uniquely specific to Velliquette’s collages, sculptures and installations.

Marƶeń is conveniently located in the lovely Atwood Avenue neighborhood at 2345 Atwood Ave. Our hours are Tuesday-Friday 11:00am-5:00pm and Saturday 12:00pm-4:00pm. We look forward to seeing you!
