Dec. 2 brings the city a new round of art openings, even if it is not gallery night.
The Marshall (arts) Building in the Third Ward on the corner of Water and Buffalo Streets will host an open house in conjunction with Christmas in the Ward.
The Coalition of Photo-graphic Arts, CoPA, will launch its 5th Annual Midwest Juried Exhibition from 5 to 9 p.m. The show runs through Jan. 21, 2012, at Walker's Point Center for the Arts.
This is an annual opportunity for CoPA members as well as photographers in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa to exhibit their work. It is also an opportunity for viewers to see a huge cross-section of photo-based projects. This year's juror was Catherine Edelman, of Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago.
Another photo-related opportunity is presented by Portrait Society Gallery, 207 E. Buffalo St., in the Third Ward. Current and former Wisconsin residents are invited to submit photo-based books to BS @ PS: Book Show at Portrait Society, a competition and exhibition. The deadline for entries is Jan. 31.
The exhibition takes place in March and April 2012. For additional information see the project web site at bsatps.wordpress.com.
