"Urban" has been broadly interpreted by the seven exhibitors and encompasses everything from body-art to architecture. Media includes photography, oils and watercolor. The Urban Experience is on view from February 28 through April 11, between and after services on Sundays, at the artists’ reception, or by arrangement.

On behalf of CoPA’s Executive Board, we hope you’ve enjoyed the diverse, thought-provoking programs we’ve offered this past year. We sat spellbound through Dr. Kenneth Bendiner’s lively “Edward Weston and Surrealism” presentation, as well as Mark Weller and John Rummel’s incredible astrophotography of the Apostle Islands lighthouses. We were moved and amused by Aaron Johnson of “What the Duck” fame and photo journalist Kristyna Wentz-Graff from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. CoPA’s own Marc Wollman showed us how to prepare our work for exhibition, and Eddee Daniel shared the ins and outs of self-publishing. Eric Ljung, winner of the Artist Incentive Award, shared his work on the preservation and demolition of Milwaukee’s historic Sydney Hih building.We’ve also critiqued each other’s work in slide slams and around tables, enjoyed a wonderful Members’ Exhibition in April and, most recently, opened our beautiful Juried Exhibition at the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts.

Beginning December 6, 2012, the Community Room Art Gallery at Unitarian Universalist Church West will be hosting a mind-bending art exhibit from six local artists and photographers entitled Surrealism and Beyond. The exhibit incorporates surreal, illusory and flow of consciousness imagery that will delight, amuse and engross audiences of all ages.

California Zephyr, a painting by League of Milwaukee artist, Ellen FS Gilbert brings to mind the graphic, plane-shifting work of M.C. Escher. Perry Heideman’s series of photographs present a visual treat in images inspired by Lewis Carroll’s, Through the Looking Glass. Heideman is a board member of CoPA, Coalition of Photographic Artists. Steven Yeo and Cardi Toellner, also of CoPA, present striking manipulated photographs. Other art includes a watercolor by Carolyn Simpson of Wauwatosa Artists workshop and dreamlike oil paintings by Tom Neuwirth.
