When art tells a story, audiences, intrigued, will look and contemplate. When art asks you to form the narrative yourself, artworks take on a life of their own. Where will your imagination take you during this solo exhibition?
Opening September 11 at Eau Claire, Wisconsin’s L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library is an enthralling solo exhibition with narrative and history as its focus. Featuring recent diptych, triptych, and individual paintings by Kristie Bretzke, “Unspoken Narrative” invites the audience to participate fully in the revelation of each artwork’s story.

Via the exhibition, “These images encourage a narrative on the part of the viewer. They are commonplace — an unmade bed, an elevator door opening or closing, an ordinary sink bathed in fluorescent light. Some depict real experiences. Some are inventions. Bretzke’s paintings provide the introduction to many ‘unspoken narratives.’”
Bretzke will be present for an opening reception at the library on Thursday September 15. To learn more, visit the L.E. Phillips Memorial Library.
