Artist reception

April 25, 2011 by Judy Trull


Tomorrow River Gallery

The Tomorrow River Gallery will be hosting a reception for the Artists listed below on Friday evening, May 13th from 5-7 pm. The public is invited to attend to meet the artists and enjoy their work. The show will run from May 14th through June 5th, and can be viewed during regular business hours at the Gallery at 182 S Main St, Amherst, WI.

Sherry Zei, of Almond is an avid gardener. She loves flowers, plants and greenery of every hue and texture. According to Zei, “I took years of watercolor classes and had trouble translating my love of the outdoors in an acceptable way. I finally determined that I was a “colorist”. I love color and its changes due to light and texture, so I pursued that direction in my painting. That shift along with finding a style that worked for me has allowed me to develop several images that I feel conveys that sense of love for nature that I feel so strongly. I taught Art for 36 years in Wisconsin, and now that I have retired, I am passionately pursuing gardening, biking, kayaking and my own artwork. My work includes silk painting, oil portraits and watercolor”

Susan Peskie Groshek, New Hope Artist is new to the Tomorrow River Gallery this spring. In her own words, she describes her passion for her art. “My drive and energy towards my art has always been focused on nature and its wonderful lighting. I have always enjoyed working with pastels, mostly because they allow me to work ‘en pleine’ (working outdoors) which invigorates me to see nature at its best. My drawings include scenes from the Great Lakes, flowers from Wisconsin, as well as orchids of Florida and numerous landscape’s. My most recent work features waterscapes created during a visit to the Gulf of Mexico this past winter. “Now that I have a newly established art studio in New Hope Township, I look forward to creating works with the excellent north lighting we have here in Wisconsin.”

John Morser, a Stevens Point photographer, is a native Milwaukee-an who discovered film development at the age of 14. After a successful career in the visual arts and retirement from teaching Political Science at UW-Stevens Point in 2002, he discovered digital imaging. Since then he has been doing studies of patterns and light, of natural and urbanscape’s in Ireland, New England, New Mexico, Iowa, the UP and Wisconsin. His most recent work has been in color, but black and white prints still hold his heart.  Morser shares that his practices are more “intuitive than reasoned or reflective. While this has allowed a continual “joy of discovery”, of seeing things not “seen” by me before, it does hinder my discussion of what I do, or why I did a particularly thing in any set of circumstances. While some of my work is planned, arranged and constructed in the studio, the bulk of my work is not, and the reasons I created a particular image are often not very clear to me.
