(Press release) – Roberta’s Art Gallery is welcoming a unique collection of art made during Covid-19 isolation by Milwaukee artist Francisco Ramirez. “This is Coming Along Just As I Expected, Unfortunately” is at Roberta’s Art Gallery from Wednesday, May 12 – June 2, 2021. The exhibit consists of printed and painted pieces created in the past year of the pandemic.
In the past year of the pandemic, Ramirez has made composite drawing prints, stations panels, and lone figure waiting prints. “This is Coming Along Just As I Expected, Unfortunately,” at Roberta’s Art Gallery features all of those forms of art. Ramirez says about living through the pandemic in the past year: “I have not had much interaction with others, I spend my days either with my daughter or in my printshop alone.”
Ramirez is based out of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area and has been printing for over a decade, mostly creating posters.
Roberta’s Art Gallery will be open all summer. The gallery is located on the first floor of the James R. Connor University Center (UC) at UW-Whitewater. The gallery hosts multiple exhibits and workshops each semester by collaborating with the artists–both locally and regionally. Many of our events were held virtually this semester. If you’ll be off campus for the summer, you can also virtually view this exhibit at uww.edu/rag.
Roberta’s Art Gallery prides itself on all of their exhibits being free and open to the public. Whether you’re a student, a Whitewater community member, or someone wanting to support the artist, stop on by to support!
