Steenbock Gallery to Open Tyler S. Ensrude Exhibit
“Another Look At Southwest Wisconsin” exhibition inspires another look at familiar scenes of Americana.
“Another Look At Southwest Wisconsin,” an exhibit featuring photographs by Tyler S. Ensrude, will be on display February 6, 2012 to March 9, 2012 in the Steenbock Gallery. An artist’s reception will take place on Friday, February 10, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public. The Steenbock Gallery is located at the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters, 1922 University Ave., and is open Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
“Southwest Wisconsin is my home,” says Ensrude, “Everything I see here reminds me of that. I was born and raised here, but I also had a second home for nearly a decade during the second Bush Administration, in the suburbs of Tokyo, Japan… Around the time I returned to the Midwest is when I started to notice trends and patterns in the landscape that I couldn’t remember seeing while I was growing up here or on my short visits home over the years… The once familiar landscape had assumed a strange veneer, a curious overlay fraught with juxtaposition and contradiction… In my photographs, I try to capture a piece of something unique to inspire another look, and a different way of seeing something familiar.”
