Press release:

Green Bay, WI – Young Space (exhibitions and projects curated by Kate Mothes; young-space.com) is delighted to present a large-scale, temporary, juried contemporary art show of recent artworks by nineteen artists, including artists from Green Bay, the state of Wisconsin, and other parts of the country. REMOTE VIEW: a pop-up art show will run from Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 28, 2016 with an opening reception on March 18 from 6-9pm. This exhibition will pop-up at 1263 Main Street, Suite 212, Green Bay, WI 54302, on the second floor of the Main Street Commons creative business block.

Work included in this show was selected by guest juror Claire Abitz, artist and founder of Standard Projects, located in Hortonville, WI. The show will feature between one and three individual artworks by each artist in a wide variety of media such as collage, painting, sculpture, photography, video, and more.

Artists included in the show (alphabetical): Cande Aguilar, Lexi Ames, Olav Bjornerud, Katy DeZellar, Donny Gettinger, Maeve Jackson, Heidi Jeub, Spencer Karls, Daniel Klewer, Mel Kolstad, Elyse-Krista Mische, Sarah O’Neil, Victor Perez, Nicholas Perry, Mariana Russell, Beth Servais, Shannon Slane, Joni Van Bockel, and Calvin Whitehurst.

REMOTE VIEW is the second exhibition of its kind presented by Young Space (the first took place in Appleton, WI in April 2015 in a former bakery). Its aim is to support artists as a vehicle for exhibiting their work, give students the opportunity to exhibit work off-campus and within the wider context of the community, welcome the community to see an exciting selection of artwork by local and national artists, and emphasize the importance of diverse arts events in Northeast Wisconsin. This unique exhibition is open to everyone. Work is available for sale.

Young Space has also partnered with Appleton Career Academy, a charter program at Appleton North High School, to provide hands-on education about gallery careers during this exhibition.

The opening reception on March 18 will feature live music by emerging Appleton-based soul group J-Council (facebook.com/jcouncilmusic) along with refreshments and coffee provided by Kaukauna Cofffee & Tea (kaukaunacoffeeandtea.com). An additional evening of music and probable hilarity takes place on Friday, March 25 at 6pm with a performance by Appleton-based folk-punk duo Duodenum.

Young Space is a nomadic visual arts platform run by independent curator Kate Mothes. It is a space for exhibiting, sharing, and talking about contemporary art with an emphasis on younger and emerging artists at the start of their careers. The goal is to function as a conduit through which artists may exhibit and sell their work, experiment with new ideas, and collaborate on projects in order to see them through from proposal to finished product. Young Space also emphasizes the importance of arts education and works with local organizations and students to offer practical experience and learning through art.

Support has been provided for this event by Mosaic Arts, Inc., Downtown Green Bay, Inc., Kaukauna Coffee & Tea, Kyle Megna and the Monsoons, and Main Street Commons.
