The Town Square Lobby Gallery will feature the work of West Salem, Wis., resident Will Ault Brinker for the month of January.
The gallery is open during Town Square’s regular winter hours, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m to 5 p.m.
His medium is monotypes, which is the impression made on a plate and transferred to paper, creating a one-of-a-kind image.
“(M)onotypes have the beautiful atmospheric glow that ink gets when it is forced into paper,” Brinker said. “At the same time, they have the vigorous marks and brush strokes of a painting.”
Brinker is an ordained minister and received his master of fine arts degree from the Vermont College of Fine Art.
Early in his church career in Cleveland, Ohio, he reflected on the beginning and end of time while presiding over weddings and funerals.
The steel industry also was collapsing during this period and he witnessed the change in the lives of his congregation and Cleveland.
“Time, beginnings and endings, is at the center of my work as an artist,” Brinker said. “To this end, I invented methods of drawing that explore time in an imaginary way, creating atmospheric compositions with abstract shapes using non-traditional art tools.”
Brinker has exhibited in Japan, Germany and Mexico, where he also taught printmaking.
Town Square Community Center is located at 492 Hill St. in Green Lake. The Lobby Gallery is devoted to showcasing local artists, and is a popular local showcase for the latest works of some of the area’s most outstanding artists.
