The Haggerty Museum of Art proudly presents an exhibition of work by the five Milwaukee artists awarded Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships in 2015.  Funded by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund and administered by the Bradley Family Foundation, the Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists provide unrestricted funds for artists to create new work, or to complete work in progress. The program is open to practicing artists residing in the four-county area (Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, and Washington counties).  This exhibition will feature work by Jon Horvath and Frankie Latina--who were awarded Nohl fellowships in the “Established Artist” category--and Ben Balcom, Zach Hill, and Maggie Sasso, who were awarded Emerging Artist fellowships.

Gendron Jensen
Series on Resurrection in Nature

For more than forty years Gendron Jensen, a largely self-taught artist now living in New Mexico, has obsessively and lovingly transformed found relics into wakeful images of uncommon beauty. A Wisconsin native, Jensen spent his childhood on his family’s farm in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.  As a young man Jensen entered the novitiate at Saint Benedict's Abbey in Benet Lake, WI.  He would eventually work in the monastery’s print shop, and develop a passion for drawing during long walks in the natural environment surrounding the Abbey. The Series on Resurrection in Nature, Jensen’s first body of drawings, consists of sixteen 60 x 72” finely detailed graphite drawings of small natural phenomena such as a black walnut shell, a dragonfly wing, and a raccoon skull.  Jensen’s masterful drawings bring large-scale grandeur to some of nature’s smallest treasures, and invite us to join Jensen in meditating upon the inner life that he perceives in nature’s many forms.
