January 23, 2014

Tamara Brantmeier explores the meaning of landscape in an art exhibit at University of Wisconsin-Stout's Furlong Gallery.

The exhibit "Painting the Personal: Landscape as Allegory" opens with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, and runs through Sunday, March 16, in the south gallery.

Tamara BrantmeierBrantmeier, an associate professor, is director of the School of Art and Design at UW-Stout. She created the six large-scale, oil-on-canvas paintings during a 2013 sabbatical.

Initially, she was searching for a way for her paintings to communicate transition and identity. "The work has transitioned into a reflection of Midwestern sensibilities, identity and aging through allegorical representations of weather systems, growth cycles and seasonal transitions," Brantmeier said.

Brantmeier also will give an artist talk at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3, at the gallery.

Admission to Furlong Gallery, 178 Micheels Hall, is free. Hours during the semester are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and until 7 p.m. Thursday. Gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Parking is free in all UW-Stout lots after 4 p.m.
