Whimsical Houses

of Ron Corlyn

October 2, 2019 - January 12, 2020

Opening Reception: October 5, 3-5pm

Artist Talks: October 5, 2:30pm & October 12, 3pm

In “The Whimsical Houses of Ron Corlyn,” over a dozen illustrations and three 3-D models of the towering and teetering houses that grew from Corlyn’s imagination are on display. In his early career as a visual artist, Corlyn drew perfectly ordinary Victorian houses until the mid-1970s when he ventured into the realm of his imagination and started drawing “ridiculous pictures of ridiculous houses.” These houses that he deemed architectural jokes are exhibited beside matching 3-D models that borrow skills from his earlier hobby of model railroading.

Ron Corlyn is a Milwaukee native and award-winning artist-photographer-author with an impressive background in the arts. He leapt into the world of sculpture and painting while studying at the Layton School of Art in Milwaukee and then at the University of Wisconsin where he graduated in 1955. Throughout his career, Corlyn worked as a professional photographer and has self-published various children’s books. Complimenting his artwork, one of Corlyn’s children’s books, “The House That Grew,” will be available for purchase throughout the duration of the exhibition.

“The Whimsical Houses of Ron Corlyn” is generously supported by Ansay & Associates.

A team of three jurors with professional and varied art backgrounds evaluated 100 digital artwork entries from eight states for Cedarburg Art Museum’s sixth annual juried exhibition. Sixty-eight works of 53 artists from five states were  juried into the nocturnal-themed exhibition, “Night Owls.” The public is invited to attend the opening reception with artist awards on Saturday, October 5, 3:00 – 5:00pm. Festivals of Cedarburg, Inc. provided a grant of financial support for “Night Owls.“

In “Night Owls,” artists interpret the nocturnal theme with great variety, creating a bounty of nighttime artworks with human, animal, landscape, and astronomical themes. The exhibition features pencil drawing, photography, fiber art, sculpture in bronze and polymer clay, mixed media, and painting in oil, pastel, watercolor, and acrylic. Commonplace subjects take on a new perspective in the darkest hours. Some artists render mysterious or spooky interpretations while whimsy prevails for others.  Numerous artists relish the muted colors of moonlight or highlight stark street lamp lighting, while still others reveal an active nightlife for humans and animals alike.
