Gregory Van Maanen: A World We Cannot See — through Nov. 6

This show presents viewers with a kind of diary of the pain and healing the artist experienced in coping with civilian life and PTSD after Van Maanen’s service in the Vietnam War. He painted on all sorts of things, ranging from stones to scrap board to canvas. While some of the images may at first seem frightening, the artist sees them as “good magic,” as talismans intended to keep evil at bay.

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through Nov. 6; John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan; voluntary donation; jmkac.org
