CoPA is partnering with ART Milwaukee to bring great photographs to the community at their ART Jamborees. With the help of other local organizations, these social experiences bring the work of featured artists to thousands each month at different locations throughout the city.
Member photographer Martha Coaty was CoPA's Featured Artist at the ART Milwaukee ART Jamboree on Saturday, May 19 at Milwaukee Athletic Club, 758 North Broadway in Downtown Milwaukee. For this event, ART Milwaukee partnered with info* Magazine for their 10 year anniversary party, which featured live painting, DJ's and live music, a food sampling from area restaurants and galleries by local artists. The festivities attracted over 2,000 people.
Coaty is an award winning fine art photographer currently living in Allouez, WI. Her photographs of houses and barns of Northern Wisconsin are geometrically precise, infused with a keen sense of stillness. She is a Wisconsin native and has practiced the art of photography for over thirty years. Her body of work, “Door County and other Northern Places,” can be viewed at www.marthacoatyphotography.com.
