Debra Brehmer

Debra is the owner and director of Portrait Society Gallery of Contemporary Art (PSG) in Milwaukee, WI, and manages its related nonprofit, On the Wing. Debra’s work has encompassed writing, curating, and teaching. She recently received the 2022 Wisconsin Visual Arts Achievement Award for art writing. From 1986 to 1995 she published and edited a bi-monthly art magazine called Art Muscle which was circulated in Wisconsin and sold on national newsstands. Debra taught art history as an adjunct professor for 10 years at the Milwaukee Art and Design prior to opening the gallery.

 

She is currently a regular writer for the New York based national art publication, Hyperallergic. Debra’s essay about Edouard Manet’s model Victorine Meurent is included in the book Fierce: Essays by and About Dauntless Women (2018), Nauset Press. She has also written many catalog essays for museum and gallery exhibitions. 

In recent years, Debra has been working on a series of essays about well-known historical works of art and their contemporary value. These personal narratives combine travel and art history within an interpretive framework. She is also currently editing the catalog for an upcoming exhibition, “Art Against the Odds: Wisconsin Prison Art,” which will be presented by PSG’s nonprofit in January 2023 at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. In the spring of 2022, Brehmer spent six weeks in a small village in the south of France at an international art residency program called Draw International.

Richard Hartman

Ric owns and operates the Gallery of Wisconsin Art (GOWA). GOWA was originally established online in 2013 and formally opened as a brick-and-mortar Gallery from 2016 – 2019 in West Bend. Largely created because no existing galleries promoted artists and artwork of early and historic Wisconsin. The online gallery continues today to promote and represent both contemporary and emerging artists, as well as early and historic (deceased) artists. 

 

The gallery’s unique mission is to promote, educate, and preserve the exceptional work of Wisconsin artists. In addition to representing the estates of historic artists and their families, the gallery buys, sells, and offers unique and valuable pieces to collectors and museums. Ric also offers appraisal services. 

 

Ric graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma WA, with a BFA in ceramics, and art education. He taught at Elkhorn Area High School (WI) for five years. Furthering his education, Ric graduated from UW Madison with a M.F.A. in Graphic Design and Photography. Ric worked most of his career in graphic design including over 30 years as a graphic designer and creative director. 

He was the Principle and Creative Director for his namesake studio - Hartman Design – located in Menomonee Falls for 15 years. Most recently, Ric curated the History of Wisconsin Art Exhibition at the Cedarburg Art Museum (January – May 2022) and serves on the Board of Directors for the Cedarburg Art Museum.
