Cedarburg Art Museum’s ninth annual juried exhibition Objects of Desire inspired artists to create their pipedream, their ambitions, what keeps them going. From 150 entries from twelve states, artworks were evaluated and scored on multiple criteria by artist and juror Shane McAdams. The resulting 73 artworks in various mediums by 53 artists reveal urban spaces juxtaposed with nature’s majesty, while other explorations of memories or everyday scenes contrast with the pure act of art making. All provide unique interpretations of intuitive connection.
