Christopher Dowell: 20 Below
Jan 9 @ 10:00 am – Feb 15 @ 5:00 pm

Exhibition will be on display from January 9 – February 15, 2020.

“In the pursuit of sturgeon, we found ourselves standing on the ice in a landscape devoid of any visible horizon. The snow blew past in ribbons, and the wind burned any exposed skin. We moved the shack over the hole cut in the ice, and now, sheltered from the wind, we took our first look into the abyss below my feet.

The exhibition 20 Below explores the tradition and dedication to sturgeon spearing on Lake Winnebago. How vital this mysterious and ancient fish is to the way of life, and how critical this community is to the lake sturgeons’ sustainability. There is still much work ahead for those involved with ensuring the future of the fish in Lake Winnebago. There is a collective will, to ensure that future generations can continue to participate in a tradition, securing the lake sturgeons’ population for future generations. Thanks to the community’s respect and understanding of its history and its passion for protecting and conserving the fish there is hope that we could be witnessing a renaissance, a return to the heyday of lake sturgeon.”

Fish of Legends
Jan 9 @ 10:00 am – Feb 15 @ 5:00 pm

Exhibition will be on display from January 9 – February 15, 2020.

Stories have existed long before recorded history, and the telling of stories has changed forms drastically throughout the ages. Although the methods have changed, the desire to tell and hear stories has remained unchanged, and still greatly impacts the way we look at life. From generation to generation, fishing stories have served as a source of fascination, humor and pride. Many of these stories have been retold and embellished upon to the point they become legendary. The work in this exhibition focuses on such legendary stories of the sturgeon. The stories on display have been gathered and reinterpreted by local artists through painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic media and sculpture. Each of these artists uses the power of the visual image to ignite imaginations, evoke emotions and capture universal cultural truths to form a connection with this celebrated ancient fish.

Copper Box is a Roots/Americana quartet loaded with energy and a mountain of instruments, influenced by blues, jazz, rock, polka, etc.

Danny Jerabek (accordion extroidinaire, keys, percussion, vocals, cornet, sousaphone, etc.) and his wife, Michelle (Thull) Jerabek (bari saxophone, vocals, guitar, percussion, etc.) both were nominated for several WAMI Awards including 2017 Reeds/Brass Award (Michelle), Specialty Instrumentalist of the Year 2011 & 2010 (Danny Jerabek) and Americana Artist of the Year 2009 & 2012. Both started performing with their family on stage at an early age. Danny Jerabek was given an accordion from his grandfather at age 9 and taught himself how to play it.

Inspired by Steve (Esteban) Jordan, “the Jimi Hendrix of Tejano Accordion,” he began to “rock out” and improvise –thinking a little more, “outside the box.” He has been featured at the International Accordion Festival in San Antonio, TX, and the National Accordion Festival in Houston, TX, and the Cotati Accordion Festival in Cotati, CA, and has been featured on national TV. In 2015, Danny accepted an Artist Endorsement deal with Hohner Accordions, Inc.
