The Waxwing celebrates 2nd anniversary on Friday, March 14th, 2014.  The artist consignment shop in Milwaukee will celebrate two years in business with a special art opening and anniversary party.

February 24th — Milwaukee, WI  A love for our city and the aspiration to support local artists are the cornerstones on which The Waxwing was built upon. Opening in March 2012, this artist consignment shop in Milwaukee has many successes to celebrate, as over 100 area artists have had their work displayed at the store for purchase. Local pride is a principal theme that can be found across The Waxwing’s inventory of prints, posters, clothing, paintings, jewelry, and accessories. It is not a common story for this type of business to maintain in today’s economy. However, success for The Waxwing has derived from the ingenuity of a modest business model, working in harmony with the passion to provide personal handmade gifts for the Milwaukee community.

On Friday, March 14th The Waxwing will celebrate its 2-year anniversary with a special art opening and anniversary party. Located at 4415 N. Oakland Avenue in Shorewood, it is only natural that The Waxwing’s accomplishments will be celebrated at this in-store party. This March 2014 Milwaukee art gallery showing lasts from 6PM – 9PM, and will feature new pieces by photographer Scott Norris, papercut artist Daniel Rathbun, and more. In addition, there will be treats and refreshments provided, along with tremendous door prizes to be won. Attendees will also enjoy live music, courtesy of Thriftones (

This serves as an open invitation to all to attend this milestone party on Friday, March 14th. This 2nd anniversary celebration is just as much about The Waxwing’s business success as it is reveling in the vibrant Milwaukee art scene. This handmade gift shop in Milwaukee encourages everyone to shop locally and support the artists within our community. For the latest details on The Waxwing’s 2-Year Anniversary party visit

Emotion. Mood. Feelings. This is what I capture through my photographs. Whether it is landscapes, architectural elements, still life, or macros - it is a very personal journey as my own fears, triumphs, beliefs, and shortcomings are exposed with each photo. In the end, it is all about telling compelling stories.
