Opening Party

Thursday, August 31

 5:30 – 7:30pm

More than five decades of artwork of Milwaukee artist Joseph Friebert (1908-2002) are represented in this succinct exhibition. Nine paintings and two lithographs embody various stages in the prominent American artist’s career.  From a representational landscape and depiction of refugees in flight in the 1940s through abstractions in the 1950s to lyrical landscapes and figurative works of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, this American artist showed diversity of subject amidst a limited palette of rich, earthy tones.  All works were gifts to the Cedarburg Art Museum from the Joseph and Betsy Ritz Friebert Family Partnership and Kohler Foundation, Inc.
