Two Art Shows
At Foster Gallery May 4-8
MAILED: April 26, 2001

         EAU CLAIRE —Seven University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire bachelor of fine arts degree candidates will exhibit their works in two shows titled "Full Circle" and "Moving On."
         The exhibit runs May 4-8 and showcases a variety of art, including sculpture, photography, ceramics, graphic design and painting. A reception for the two shows will be held from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, May 4, in Foster Gallery of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
         The "Full Circle" exhibit is the combined effort of seniors Sara Black, Cumberland, Stephanie Mc Miller, Waupaca, and Sarah Privett, De Pere.
         Black said she is interested in creating artwork that communicates perspectives on social issues that she cares about, such as feminism, environmentalism and pluralism.
         Privett’s focus is on black and white photography that features the human form seen in an abstract light, and Mc Miller will exhibit a variety of two-dimensional works in mediums varying from acrylics to pastels to wax.
         The "Moving On" exhibit is the combined effort of seniors Coy Koehler, Marshfield, Sarah Schmidt, Mequon, Jerry Turner, Savage, Minn., and Christine Lund, Brooklyn Park, Minn.
         Lund is an illustration major and says her illustrations, photographs, painting and prints are her own personal interpretation of the world around her.
         Turner exhibits in a variety of mediums, including painting, printmaking and digital media. "My work is an extension of myself," said Turner. "It is an amalgamation of life experiences and interests."
         Foster Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays, 6-8 p.m. Thursdays and 1-4:30 p.m. weekends. For more information about gallery exhibits, call Tom Wagener at (715) 836-2328.
