UW-Eau Claire's Foster Gallery
To Host Lunch Series on Conceptual Art

 MAILED:  March 4, 2003

EAU CLAIRE - The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Foster Gallery is pleased to announce an exciting four-part Brown Bag Lunch Series, titled "From Concept to Image and Back Again," featuring three regional artists who will explore the conceptual nature of their work. The presentations will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Mondays, March 10, 24, 31 and April 7 in the Foster Gallery of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

Dr. Gene Hood, chairman of UW-Eau Claire's art department, will kick-off the series on March 10 with "From Idea of Language to Language of Ideas." Former Bush Fellowship recipient Susan Sveda-Uncapher will present "The Question IS the Point" on March 24, and art professor Scott Robertson will present "Romantic Landscapes and the Artificial" on March 31. The series will conclude on April 7 with a panel discussion by all three artists titled "Denied of Market Hunger, I Ate a Conceptual Sandwich." At this final event, audience members will be invited to share pizza as well as their ideas on the nature of conceptual art.

Come each week for free refreshments, audio-visual aids for your viewing pleasure (including state-of-the art slide projector and chalkboards) and a chance to win fabulous conceptual door prizes.
