Gallery Night

Fasten Designer Collective and Gallery Presents:
Work by Becky Tesch and Erika Wolf
January 14th - February 28th
Opening Reception on Gallery Night; Friday, January 16th 6-9pm

Fasten is pleased to present the works of two Milwaukee artists. Becky Tesch will be showing a collection entitled "Garbage and Glue" including her newest found-object sculptures and collages. Erika Wolf will be showing collected works of oil on canvas paintings.

Becky Tesch is a Milwaukee native who graduated from UWM with a degree in graphic design. Beside her graphic design work, everything she makes with her hands is out of recycled materials. Under her label MyMishMosh, Becky creates jewelry, accessories, and home goods out of bike parts, building materials, and found ephemera. In her collection of art, discarded and seemingly useless materials are infused with new life and beauty by her simple sweet juxtaposition of color and texture.

Erika Wolf graduated from the Cleaveland Institute of Art with a BFA. The subjects in her paintings are common objects arranged into narratives and infused with simple grace. In the words of the artist; "My paintings are a validation of my personal experience, a manifestation of my search for meaning, and a representation of the beauty inherent within the imperfections of my own human involvement."
