Works by Keith Dotson featured on the walls of Milwaukee law firm Barton Cerjak for Gallery Night event
Milwaukee — Fine art photographer Keith Dotson was honored to be the featured artist at a Milwaukee Gallery Night venue on April 21, 2023. The boutique law firm of Barton Cerjak S.C. had recently acquired a collection Dotson's fine art photographs for the walls of their new office space in the historic Pritzlaff Building, and decided to celebrate their new space and artworks on the city's popular Gallery Night.
The well-attended festivities included live music by a local jazz band, gourmet hors d'oeuvres, local beer, and fine wines. The large crowd included attorneys and their families, clients of the firm, families with children, and people off the streets seeking to look at the photographs.

The relationship between firm partner James Barton and Keith Dotson began several years prior when Barton sought to design his firm's website around Dotson's photographs. A recent partnership between Barton and Michael Cerjak — along with a new office space in the Pritzlaff Building — created a need for wall art, and an opportunity for an open house celebration. Milwaukee's April Gallery Night offered the perfect chance for clients and art lovers to come inside the firm for a party and art viewing.

Unlike most Gallery Night spaces, this art was not for sale to visitors because it had already been acquired by the firm.
Many thanks to James Barton and Michael Cerjak for hosting the festivities!
