The originals from Amy Ruppel’s amazing show In Situ: Refugia are now available to view and purchase online.
In Situ: Refugia
Refigium: an area in which a population of organisms can survive through a period of unfavorable conditions, especially glaciation. Plural: Refugia.
This body of work is a commentary on our rapidly changing environment, focusing primarily on the animals and glacial bodies that challenge refugia due to current geographic upheavals.
Whales are lifted from their ocean haven to sift through beautiful but foreboding skies. Arctic seascapes reveal beauty while conceding to inherent fragility. Icebergs and glaciers take their last stand as sentinels of the sea.
Amy Ruppel grew up in the Wisconsin woods just a short hike away from the Kettle Moraine Ice Age Center, inspiring an interest in science and nature from a young age. This fascination has always informed her creative output. She’s adept at many different media with a portfolio spanning digital illustration, drawing, painting and print-making.
Show opens Saturday, February 8th from 3-5pm.
This show runs through March 22, 2020.
We’re thrilled to welcome back Ryan Berkley to the gallery from October 5 – November 11, 2019.

Candian-based illustrator and designer comes to Land for his American debut Friday, May 3rd, from 6-9pm.
“Doozy” is a collection of new work by Vancouver based Illustrator and Artist, Graeme Zirk.
Webster’s defines “Doozy” as “an extraordinary one of its kind” but present day vernacular would suggest otherwise.
It’s a once pleasant word that has been adapted for sarcastic, pejorative purposes. As a result, we’re left with a paradoxical turn of phrase that leaves us our own devices to determine whether something is great or godawful.
Graeme Zirk is interested in creating work with a sentiment and aesthetic that is hard to place. Pieces can feel both refined and flawed, pleasant and melancholic, bold and doubtful, direct and cryptic. Regardless of perception, the show promises to be a real doozy.
The creative force behind Slow Loris Studios joins us in March and April for an intimate show of all new work.
She’s bringing a stunning collection of mixed media pieces of ink, gouache, tissue, mimeograph carbon and oil pastel on pine to the gallery.
Opening reception Saturday, March 30, 2019 from 2-5pm.
Show runs in the gallery March 31 – April 28, 2019.
We were thrilled at the reception for Peter Nevins’ amazing woodcut block prints this weekend. His show is full of beautiful colors and hand-cut imagery. The show is up in the gallery through March 17th. We’re open daily 10a-6p.
We’re thrilled to welcome Peter Nevins to Land on Saturday, February 16th from 2-5pm for a free printmaking demonstration.
Peter will be brining a large collection of his latest prints for an exhibition and will be on-hand to discuss his techniques.
His process of carving into giant wood blocks to create multiple layers is a true wonder to behold in person. You’ll see the depth texture of each layer come to life.
Thank you to everyone who came out this weekend to see Mimi Williams art exhibition and a special thanks to all the folks who attended her free printmaking workshop. We had a wonderful time hosting her and all of you!
Her show of original prints will be up in the gallery through Sunday, February 10th — so be sure and swing by and check them out if you haven’t yet.
We’re thrilled to have our annual “Off The Wall” event going on upstairs in the gallery through the holidays.
We’ve stuffed the gallery with a great collection of framed prints and posters — perfect for gift giving.
Unlike our normal shows, if you see something you like — you just take it off the wall, bring it downstairs, pay for it, and take it home right there and then.
