Plastic Symphony: Performance by Skully Gustafson

  • The Pitch Project Gallery & Artist Studios 706 South 5th Street Milwaukee, WI, 53204 United States (map)

Please join us in the LOUNGE for an evening performance by Skully Gustafson. Cassette cut-ups, beats, and sounds of the subconscious fill the aural space while fueling the artist's creativity to transform raw materials into art works and paintings.
"Plastic Symphony" is an alchemical demonstration of creation and ritual. Passion, play, musical musings and motion unveil the process of birthing new works. Perfomance will be held December 15th from 7-8pm. 

About Plastic Alchemy:
Skully is the first artist to be featured in a new solo exhibition series that highlights the commissioned artists for the Brenner Brewing beer labels. Skully’s art can be found on Brenner’s Butterfly Farts Citrus Ale. 

12th century Alchemists sought to understand and transform their world in physical terms by combining knowledge, proto-science, spirituality and mysticism. Plastic Alchemy combines the acrylic medium, abstraction, figurative mannerism and symbolism to create a contemporary recipe for visual art.

Plastic Alchemy is open through December 31st. 

Gallery Hours: Thursday & Friday 5-8 p.m. –Saturday 3-8 p.m. & Sunday 3–5 p.m.
