Their work hangs side by side for the first time at the Portrait Society Gallery’s fall exhibition. “Husband & Husband,” on view through November 10 (207 E. Buffalo St.).
We reached out to three local creatives for their take on the show:
“There are artists who make art, and others who live art. And still others who are art – Lon and Todd are [among] the rare few who meet that distinction. We’re lucky to have them in our community; they represent the raw, unfettered expressivity that distinguishes Wisconsin’s art scene.” — Shane McAdams, visual artist and writer
“Expect viscera – from the wildly racing heart to the bleeding mind, displayed in the most ecstatic way possible, heralding the artists’ selves among their many brushstrokes.” — Sam Pekarske, poet and founder of “Poets Read Some Stuff Someplace in Milwaukee”
[Commenting on a photo of the couple’s color-soaked Lodi studio] “Yes, the carpet matches the drapes.” — Don Krause, owner of Art Bar
