Ballweg Gallery

Steven F Wirtz, Bull, paper mache and wire

The Diane Endres Ballweg Gallery inside the Goodman Community Center displays work by emerging and contemporary artists with a tie to Madison. The gallery seeks to invigorate the community’s artistic spirit by providing a high visibility space for artists to present their work to the public, making it easy for our community to enjoy and purchase original local art. The gallery hall is the way to to our largest and most-used community rooms, so hundreds to thousands of people walk by the artwork every month of the year.

The Ballweg Gallery displays work by contemporary artists with a tie to Madison, often to Madison's east side. Artwork is selected for display by a small team including our Volunteer Gallery Curator and some staff.

We're currently looking for artists for 2017.

Chasing the Dream

Linocut Relief Prints by Mark B. Hill

M HIll The Vines of Dreamland WEB

Artist Statement

I am a (mostly) self-educated artist specializing in linoleum relief prints. I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil and love to sketch, draw and doodle.

My work is based on several facets of my life. Dreams, childhood memories, reading, and life experiences all fuel my work. I enjoy telling the story behind the piece of art as much as I enjoy producing the art.

I am drawn to the process of printmaking. From concept to carving the block to printing the edition, I enjoy all of it. I am always seeking to learn new methods of making the print. All of my printing work so far has been linocuts but I plan on doing woodcuts in the near future.


A native of Carbondale, Illinois, I have been a Wisconsinite for over 25 years now. 

I now live in Middleton, Wisconsin with my wife, muse and inspiration, photographer and rock-star certified yoga instructor, Valerie Hesslink.
