Ally Wilber will be exhibiting her art work at our Kimberly location in the month of May!

Ally grew up in the woods of a small town in northern Wisconsin. She obtained her BA in English and Studio Art from Ripon College and is now an artist-in-residence at The Refuge Foundation for the Arts in Appleton, WI. She seeks to provoke discomfort in her audience, inspiring them to question the roots of their associations with symbols in imagery.

Ally Wilber can be found on her website and Instagram.  She also recently worked on the mural on Seth's Coffee in Little Chute during Bazaar After Dark.

Tyler Helfrich will be displaying some art at our Kimberly location in the month of May 2018!

I am currently a full time artist and entrepreneur, creating art and events of many expressions in and around Appleton WI. My interests that influence my art and events include archeology, language, science, and philosophy of the human body, mind, and spirit.
I attribute myself being this way from an exchange student experience I had living and studying in Hildesheim Germany. Apart from that- I’ve received a BFA with an emphasis in Printmaking from UW STOUT.  My current mission is to shake up the WI culture thru art!!

This collection is mostly made of found objects or reclaimed objects, but it is mostly made of someones perceived garbage. Garbage art pushes the viewer into the realm of perspective in which seeing the beauty in what is mostly considered ugly and useless.
