Foster Gallery Features Works
of 'New Orleans Artists in Exile'

RELEASED: March 4, 2008

EAU CLAIRE — The new exhibit "New Orleans Artists in Exile" will run through March 31 in the Foster Gallery in the Haas Fine Arts Center at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The gallery will be closed during spring break, March 15-24.

Curated by the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans, the exhibit features the works of eight artists in a variety of mediums. Ferrara has worked with New Orleans artists who were displaced by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

"This exhibition shows just a small part of the stories that have come out of the devastation as residents of New Orleans are working to put their lives back together," said Tom Wagener, director of the Foster Gallery.

Foster Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 6-8 p.m. Thursday and 1-4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information about gallery exhibits, call Wagener at 715-836-2328.
