Mixed-media artist is July resident at center

Izzi Buikus is the July artist-in-residence at the Cedarburg Cultural Center.

Buikus, who likes to inspire others by creating personal connections to and through art, earned her master’s degree in education from Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon and her bachelor’s degree in fine art from the University of Wisconsin-Stout.   

Buikus, who grew up in a Midwestern Christian household, said, “The spiritual world has always been as real to me as the natural world. Inspired by the parables in the Bible, I attempt to explain spiritual themes using familiar visual and social cues.  I enjoy experimenting with different materials ... I embrace the tension between the unpredictable and sometimes uncontrollable nature of the paint with the refined structure of the charcoal as it echoes the tension often portrayed in my imagery.”

Buikus will be at the center from 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, July 17, 24 and 31, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, July 12, 21 and 28, and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays, July 13, 22 and 29.

She will also hold a workshop, “Pieced Together,” from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 21. Participants will create a quirky portrait using a mixed media approach, learn the importance of value, the versatility of chalk and charcoal and the principals behind a successful portrait.  

Supplies are included in the $40 fee for center members and $48 cost for nonmembers.
