3/Swamp City Gallery Lounge
Our featured artist for our final ArtWalk of 2022 is the lovely and talented Brooke Madsen. Brooke has worked in clay for over two decades and has dabbled in painting, drawing, metal and wood. In the often-difficult world we live in, she believes we must create magic wherever we can. Her way is by creating connections through art.
Brooke’s work is an exploration of human experience, both through body and emotion. Her aim is to push toward a culture of acceptance and light-heartedness toward the human experience and our normal flaws, to normalize visuals of nudity, in fat or aging bodies and faces, that reflect our struggles and strong emotions.
Brooke prefers a surrealist approach in her art-making, as it often helps her to process and express an experience or emotion through playful exaggeration of the body, and then to lighten that experience with humor. Or to not lighten it and to invite the viewer into that emotion fully.
Brooke’s most visible work, her “Ugly Mugs”, are about the funny ways that stress and life circumstances show up on our cute, varied faces. She loves watching people interact with them and recognize themselves or others in their faces. Love is always present.
Catch Brooke Madsen and her Ugly Muggery collection, 6pm-10pm. The always tasty Grilled Cheese Girl will be on hand to tackle your tastebuds throughout the event.
SwampCity is also pleased to announce the return of our favorite swing jazz ensemble, Porch Swing, who will grace our stage 7pm-9pm.

4/ Bingo Deli & Pub
Located in historic South Main Station with Heartwood Soundstage across from Depot Park, Bingo Deli presents
Tin City Collective, a group of likeminded artists in Gainesville, Florida.
Sara McTigue holds a BA in Lithographic Printmaking and Ceramics from Stonybrook University and an MBA from UF.
In Synthetic Landscapes, single use polymer packaging is transformed into abstracted terrain by emphasizing the three-dimensional shapes with color. The compositions highlight and distance themselves from the ordinary blow-mold plastic packaging found on most household items. The immense energy used to heat and compress granular polymer into machined shapes to protect products is immediately discarded by the consumer. I am fascinated by process, industry, the permanent and impermanent and strived to investigate my own relationship with convenience and consumption in this work.
