IndependenceFirst's 2011 Art Exhibition to Feature Works of Gregory Martens

Aug. 23, 2011

Inspired by a vision of full inclusion of people with disabilities in every aspect of our community, IndependenceFirst is proud to present its 2011 Juried Art Exhibition featuring the works of artist Gregory Martens. Touring Myeloma, a series of screen prints on paper, explores the artist’s journey after being diagnosed with aggressive bone marrow cancer in 2005. Martens describes the series of 13 prints as “a story of one man trying to hold on to his identity through adversity.”


Martens, a printmaker, book artist and ceramic sculptor, received a BFA in printmaking from UW-Milwaukee in 2009 and is a regular exhibitor of his works, having pieces collected across North and South America.


The Exhibition will be on display at IndependenceFirst:

October 1 – October 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


The Gallery Night Reception will be held:

October 21 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
