About The Event
Villa Artist in Residency Cat Gilbert presents evocative studies of the art, flora and architecture of the Villa Terrace in "A Different Kind of Garden" opening June 8. During her residency, Gilbert studied the design motifs, textures, and colors found throughout the Villa Terrace to create paintings, cyanotypes and sculptural arrangements. The pieces were inspired by the Villa’s gardens, the historic home’s interior elements (including tiles and fabrics) and Cyril Colnik’s ironworks. Milwaukee artist Gilbert joined the Villa Terrace is an artist in residence in March. "A Different Garden" is her first solo exhibition. Gilbert is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice explores design motifs, color and patterns found in natural environments. Gilbert’s work has been shown around the globe in exhibitions including the UMAO Festival, Videoholica and the International Festival of Movement on Screen.
