Gimme Baby Robots is a large artist collaborative founded in 2005 in Madison, WI. It is comprised of over 100 artists throughout the United States. The show is a one-day event that happens during the year in which all of the art is auctioned off at very affordable prices to allow everyone a chance to own a great piece of original artwork.

Studio Visits

Jeremy Uglow Drawing

While Reuben Kincaid has been visiting holland for the last week, I have been busy doing studio visits in the cheese state. I visited the Kincaid house in Whitewater, WI, where Jeremy Uglow showed me some of his new paintings he's been making for his future solo show in the fall. The show still needs some work, but I think with some hard work over the summer it's going to be great.

Leah Evans Studio

Later that afternoon I visited with fiber artist Leah Evans at her studio in Madison, WI. Her show will be in July and August at the project space. She will also be at the 57th Street Art Fair in Hydepark on June 7th and 8th, and at the Bucktown Arts Festival on August 23rd and 24th.
