Sky High Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibit in Milwaukee by up and coming Seattle based artist Stacey Rozich. This show will feature 14 new framed paintings that conjure feelings of spiritual folk tales and ritual. Curator Faythe Levine is excited to bring the mystery and detail of Rozich’s work to Milwaukee. This body of work is the perfect end of winter show when the mid west is getting ready to explode out of hibernation and into spring celebration.
Rozich was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and studied Illustration at California College of Arts in San Francisco. Aside from a booming career as a gallery artist Rozich has recently completed a number of illustration jobs including the cover design for Seattle based band Earth, which was mentioned recently on NPR.
“The inspiration [from my work] comes from cultures all over the world and my research is key to keeping my ideas and story lines fresh. Not only is there evolution in the stories, but I see it in the sharpening of my technical skills in each piece I do.” -Stacey Rozich
This exhibit is in conjunction with "Cautionary Tale" a group show curated by Andrea Avery at the UW-Milwaukee Union Art Gallery UW Milwaukee where Rozich will have additional pieces from her collection from March 4- April 1st.
