Galaudet Gallery is bringing you a room full of roses in their Choix Roses art exhibit showing roses by the famed botanical artist Pierre J. Redouté Nov. 15, 2017—Jan.5, 2018 at 618 S. Farwell in downtown Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
Choix Roses will thrill botanical art lovers, flower lovers and all who find beauty in the rose. Pierre J. Redouté was one of the most talented and popular botanical artists in history credited with bringing botanical drawings into the art world with his techniques. The work of several different engravers who brought Redouté’s watercolors and oils to the world will also be explored. Choix Roses brings together the artist’s works from across his career.
Choosing to focus on red, pink and yellow roses for this exhibit, Galaudet Gallery has sourced wonderful prints to display. Redouté perfected a special method of color stipple engraving that gives his botanical prints rich subtleties of color and a striking luminosity. All prints on offer for this exhibit were made from the original hand colored engravings.
“Working with these beautiful roses has been immensely pleasurable,” Galaudet Gallery co-owner Vicki Milewski says, “There is a connection made between these roses and each person who views them. Redouté’s artistry and coloration make them aesthetically pleasing, historically significant, and visually exciting.”
Here the roses speak for themselves so please stop in and listen

Our Chicago Gallery's exhibit is The Dawn Always Rises:
The Dawn Always Rises has 10 large canvases by Vicki Milewski with her dancing ladies bringing the dawn up and selecting which stars can stay int he dawn sky. Inspired by Oscar Howe's dancers and experiences she has had in the Badlands of South Dakota, Milewski draws from many deep wells. Recently finished and already nationally exhibited these "dancing ladies" as Milewski likes to call are already scheduled for several exhibitions in 2018. Stop in to see new selections in Tiffany Lights and these dancers a sure smile will rise during our hectic city holiday season.
Both of these art exhibits build upon the work Galaudet Gallery has done in bringing attention to new perspectives on art that the sibling co-owners Mike Milewski and Vicki Milewski have become famous for.
