#Wednesday in #LakeGeneva

Another wonderful day in the shade in Lake Geneva. The conversations, once again, were worthwhile and, hopefully, gave a lot of people a sense of appreciation for the lake and what it is to create a watercolor painting. Thank you to everybody who stopped by, especially my buddy Zach Ziegler who biked in from Burlington via Williams Bay. Most importantly, thanks to my mom who join me on today’s trip. Please visit my Plein Air Site to get a feeling for many of my works at: https://frankkorb.wordpress.com/pleinair/

2013 REAW Waterford was a Success

The River’s Edge Art Walk (REAW) was outstanding this year. A huge thanks to the crowds, the students, my family, and Melissa and Dan Trittin for the support and help simply exhibiting the work. Without the audience, the crowd, my art would just be for me. Thank you.

34 works of art in 50 seconds… Thanks Southampton for the Inspiration

Thanks to the Inspiration of Blouin Art Info‘s Southampton Art Fair (the Third and LARGEST art fair in Southampton), and the 60 works in 60 seconds video produced to publicize the show (Link Here). I present to you 34 Works of Art in 50 seconds. The video of my works (with music presented by YouTube – Thanks) I offer a brief glimpse of the works currently on display (and for sale) at Cafe LuLu in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. If you happen to be in the neighborhood – please stop in and take a look. If you are in Southampton, do the same for their show!

What’s Been Happening Lately? Works from the Studio.

With new works come new ideas! I also find that a good run helps me to get some ideas  moving around in the head and then to the board (not so much canvas…). The five newest works added to the larger body of abstract works will be on view at Cafe LuLu in the Bay View Neighborhood of Milwaukee (2265 S Howell Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53207) by the end of the month (except “I Will Fill it With Splendid Gifts” gone, destroyed, bye, bye – Thanks Don at the Art*Bar in Milwaukee – AWESOME “One Week Painting”. Please take a moment to look through these works and see (week of July 22). These works have become a lot more about the recycling of materials, often found in the streets, but sometimes found in studio, and even classroom – thanks Phelan! I have taken some time to think about the materials that are being used and, thanks to a recent trip to the Milwaukee Art Museum, the materials have regained a sense of purpose. Enjoy!

Making Plans to Create an “One Week Painting”

Ok… This is a blog from another site of mine, but the amount of images is a A LOT to copy over… well… the gallery portion is. I took a moment to stop at the Art*Bar in Milwaukee to check out what the artist did on Sunday evening to work OVER my painting… it was AWESOME! There is still KORB painting left. Thank you!

Art With Korb

Once a year, I get the opportunity to create a temporary artwork at the Art*Bar in Milwaukee, WI. The Art*Bar is exactly what it sounds like, a Bar that has no wall advertising for the adult beverages that it serves, but rather walls full of real, live, legitimate Art (with a capital A). To see MORE of my art and the PURCHASE MORE of my art (nudge nudge…) please visit frankkorb.com and get in tough with me through my e-mail there.

After September 11, 2001 occurred, and the world was still reeling from the shock, “Don Krause, then 42, took the event as a personal wake-up call and sought out a place to cultivate his Riverwest dream, to create a unique tavern. “I never told anyone what I was working on and I didn’t know when it was going to open,” says Krause. “I had never done anything like it before.”…

The Art Bar 2009-2010 WINNER

The winner of one of 10 BEST PAINTINGS from 2009-10
19 March 2010, artists from all over Wisconsin (and maybe some from other parts of the country – heck World) converged upon Don Krause’s ART BAR at 722 East Burleigh Street in Milwaukee, WI to celebrate yet another successful year of paintings. 52 paintings were painted and then photographed so the celebration could have a wall of paintings and a slide show to visually take us through the year, one painting at a time. From gluttony to sea monkeys, flying eggs to the Art Bar itself (mine) the paintings were the stringest Mr. Krause has seen since the whole event started. For the second time in 5 years, Abby and I took a place of honor upon the wall of the Art Bar as one of Don’s favorite paintings for the year. I have already scheduled myself for July 25th so make sure you save that date… I sure hope I have saved tat date. Enjoy the pictures!
