Foster Gallery To Present
Two Senior Shows Dec. 13-16 

MAILED: Dec. 4, 2001

         EAU CLAIRE  Twelve University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire bachelor of fine arts degree candidates will exhibit their works in two shows titled "Flaunting Perspectives" and "Better By Design."
         The exhibit runs Dec. 13-16 and showcases a variety of art, including photography, graphic design, painting and ceramics. A reception for the two shows will be held from 2-4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 15, in Foster Gallery of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
         The "Flaunting Perspectives" exhibit is the combined effort of seniors Jenn Lassa, Wisconsin Rapids, Leif Ramlow, Amherst, and Troy Williams, Eagan, Minn.
         Lassa, whose works consist of color photography and digital ink jet prints, says that photography is her method of "spontaneously seizing a unique perspective that my viewers may not have seen."
         Williams, who will exhibit ceramics, says his work represents a dialogue between himself and the clay and that the finished work is a product that relates to the process as a whole.
         "From mixing to firing, evidence of the hands' manipulation is recorded by the clay," Williams said.
         The "Better By Design" exhibit features the work of seniors Allison Amsrud, Wausau, Almira De Figueredo Downs, Eau Claire, Kyle Gustafson, McFarland, Catherine Heffron, Beaver Dam, Kevin Hendler, Marshfield, Robyn McAlpine, Rogers, Minn., Cynthia Paulson, Eau Claire, Kelly Pett, Marine, Minn., and Steve Vorass, Beloit.
         McAlpine, a graphic design major whose work consists of print and electronic media, says she strives "to produce creative and effective designs that are sophisticated and interesting."
         Hendler said his work is a collaboration of his personal studies and experiences conducted during his academic career.
         "My art is a reflection of my passion and personal expression," he said.
         Foster Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays and 1 to 4:30 p.m. weekends. For more information about gallery exhibits, call Tom Wagener at (715) 836-2328.
