The River’s Edge Art Walk is THIS FRIDAY in Waterford, WI from 5 – 9pm. 27 Artists from all around the area will be sharing their works and I am among them for the 2nd year.

My lunch (and art) at Cafe LuLu with my family in Bay View, Milwaukee

Once again, but with a moving twist, 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. When you happen to be in the neighborhood – please stop in and take a look. My family and I had a great lunch there and this is a short video of the works. Please, stop in and check out the works, have a GREAT MEAL, and contact me when you are interested in the works. Also… mark your calendars for September 27 when the ENTIRE BAY VIEW Neighborhood opens their artistic doors to celebrate the artwork, artists, art galleries, and art spaces that Bay View, Milwaukee has to offer. I will be at Café LuLu to talk and chat… I hope to see you, and all your friends, there!

New Exhibition… 10 Years Since Last Cafe LuLu Show

Thanks to Cam Roberts at the Bay Milwaukee staple for a good meal, great times, and awesome art (mine notwithstanding, I hope) CAFE LuLu. The show went up in record time: 3 hours SOLO. I lost one work to a 12 foot drop but… I hope to have it up and in place on Wednesday afternoon. I am really pleased with the showing – perhaps you can see the groups that were made as you look things over. This exhibition of works will be on display through October so… while it is there, get in and check it out. I hope to get a lot of comments, feedback, and followers. Milwaukee Gallery Night is this Friday, but Bay View’s Gallery night is in September – enjoy the show.

Stop back for more images SOON.




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.”…

Racine Co. Fair – En Plein Air Painting Contest 2010

Racine Co. Fair… Day 3. Today I participated in the first En Plein Air Painting contest. There were 5 first year entrants and we were given a canvas and 3 hours to complete our observations of the fair. I thought about what everyone sees when they come to the fair and what the most common, every-year, and, to me, iconic areas of the fair there were. The main entrance and Squires Hot Dog stand stood out to me. Here are pictures that Julie took of the First Year WINNER! $40 and a great 2′ x 4′ canvas and the honor of being the inaugural winner! Thanks to the Racine Co. Fair for putting on such a great idea. There were a lot of great conversations and questions by the fair goers and other artists who took place. Julie, thanks for taking the pictures and for the 4 hours of painting time. Thanks also to Toni for talking me into joining the fun!

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!
