About the artists:

Robert Caldwell
Assemblage artist Robert Caldwell of Viroqua, WI, has been creating “altars to the unknown” for more than 40 years. Using a wide variety of methods and objects, Caldwell creates his altars to “facilitate the unconscious in speaking the individuating message it has to offer.” In creating each altar, Caldwell pays little attention to “traditional aesthetics.” In fact, he does not view his works as art at all: “This is not art, and I do not identify as an artist. Each altar is a relic of a living, transformative event in my psyche whose exact purpose cannot be understood or defined. I recommend this process to anyone who is longing for truth and experiential meaning.”

Dewayne Wrencher
Printmaker, poet, and illustrator Dewayne Wrencher creates art that seeks to build a dialogue on complex questions of identity, questions which are central both to his methods and observations as an artist and to the audience’s viewing of his work. “There have been repetitive questions circling the globe that center on the topics of home and identity. Questions like, who am I and is there a place on this planet I can truly call home?” Wrencher creates works using prints, found objects, and creative wordplay, exploring these themes in a unique, challenging form. “I want viewers to question their current assumptions of reality regarding social differences.”
