A reception and exhibit of the artwork of Richard Allen will take place at Artists Gallery. Allen is a painter and photographer capturing the ethnicity, vulnerability and identity of his subjects.

Though the show is not juried, many skilled artists will participate including a number from the “Wisconsin 30” exhibition at Milwaukee Art Museum.
