Found Objects Find Me, an international solo online photo exhibition by Michael J. Peterson, opens on June 15, and will continue until July 15, 2023.

Finding the beauty in the discarded material is the drive behind Michael Peterson's work. Collecting trash-- twine, mesh, leather, paper, textured packaging is a fundamental ritual in his process. Through an intuitive creation, adding, subtracting, building in layers, unrelated materials become related, happenstance, chance, accidents become beauty.

Artist ( Description ): 

“Found Objects Find Me” is the foundation of abstract multi-disciplinary artist Michael Peterson. Born and raised in Eau Claire, WI he is a true townie and US Air Force Veteran. Through his time in the service he was exposed to the European Masters and contemporary art greats while stationed in West Germany, which took him on a winding life-long journey of finding trash and making art. He studied at UW-EC after his service in the 80’s but dropped out when the classes turned from art to the gen eds. He has mentored under Tiit Reed, Janet Carson, and CV Peterson. He has exhibited locally at Wisconsin Arts West, 200 Main Gallery, Janet Carson Gallery, and the Heyde Center for the Arts. He has also exhibited nationally at Kelwood Contemporary Art, University of Alaska - Anchorage, Kent State University, and more. He has outlasted many of the galleries and clubs he has exhibited with but is always down for a beer and good art conversation. He finds beauty in the rough and that includes life.
