John N. Colt: Nature Up-Close

Gallery Talk:  Friday, June 18 at 6 PM

 

Nature viewed up-close provided impetus and vision for nearly five decades of the artistic career of John Nicholson Colt (1925-1998).  Small- and large-scale renderings of micro habitats and creatures are whimsically transformed in a variety of media by one of Wisconsin’s artistic giants of modernist expression. Twenty interpretations of Colt’s imaginative natural world are gifts to the Cedarburg Art Museum Collection by Ruth Kjaer and the Kohler Foundation, Inc.
