New art in the library

IMG_3659The Kewaskum Public Library is proud to welcome artist Daniel Meilahn, whose paintings can be seen at the library until May. Mr. Meilahn is a native of Kewaskum and studied painting at University of Wisconsin in the 1970s. While working full-time as a special education instructor with autistic children, Meilahn continued to paint for over 35 years. His work can be seen as part of the magic realism movement which originated with the so-called “Wisconsin Surrealists” in the 1940s. Although he uses acrylic and other common mediums, his technique of reverse painting on clear Lucite panels lends his work a dream-like quality. Stop in and see these unique works, which are being displayed in public for the first time!
