Effjay Projekts (now Frank Juarez Gallery) remains an exciting new development in the Sheboygan art scene, and one well worth a visit. Women remain vastly underrepresented in the art world and Juarez’s commitment to highlighting the work of female photographers through Schafer and Zuback is commendable. – Karin Wolf, Art City Arts Writer.
“What She Said” is curated by Milwaukee photographers Jessica Z Schafer and William Zuback. It opens Thursday at EFFJAY PROJEKTS, an increasingly important regional venue founded by former Milwaukee artist Frank Juarez. – Mary Louise Schumacher, Milwaukee Art Critic.
