Lily Pad Gallery West provides the finest quality realism, naturalism, impressionism, and abstract works of art. With over 200 works of art from 70 distinct artists, the gallery brings quality art from modern contemporary to art reminiscent of 19th century French and Dutch Masters.

Owners Alan Perlstein and Terry Hamann decided to open Lily Pad Gallery West in Milwaukee in early 2015. Longtime appreciators of art, they started as collectors 40 years ago, with limited funds but a passion for art. Perlstein and Hamann’s friend and partner, Wivi-Anne Weber, had a great gallery in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, called Lily Pad Gallery, which the couple had supported for over 20 years as collectors. They decided they’d love to open a sister gallery in Milwaukee, which is how Lily Pad Gallery West came to be.

Four times a year, the third weekend in January, April, July, and October, the city of Milwaukee hosts a city-wide gallery hop event called Gallery Night MKE. Lily Pad West participates in these events with an artist in residence for the weekend, a temporary showcase exhibition, and new work from many of our 70 distinct artists.


Gallery Night MKE 2020 dates:

• January 17 and 18

• April 17 and 18

• July 17 and 18

• October 16 and 17

Gallery Night MKE hours: F 5–9, Sa 11–5
