Although parts of the United States are digging themselves out from under piles of ice and snow — especially the Northeast — artists and galleries are still fighting for spring! There’s something beautiful blooming in Milwaukee…

Tory Folliard Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is poised to open a brilliant and radiant display of new paintings by artist James Winn. It opens on March 18 and continues through April 15; the gallery will showcase a number of Winn’s beautiful floral compositions sure to warm one’s soul.

A reception for the show, along with an artist talk, will be hosted from 1-4 p.m. on March 18 at the venue. As reported by the gallery, “Azaleas, irises, lilies and other flowering foliage once again capture the eye of Illinois artist James Winn. Unlike his landscape paintings with endless skies, Winn is shifting his perspective and bringing the viewer eye-to-eye with portraits of individual blooms and luminously lit flowers set against dark backgrounds. By manipulating light and color, these highly detailed paintings present a sense of Presence that one can experience when alone and attentive in nature.”
