The Foster Gallery at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is pleased to announce the opening of “In Tune,” the fall bachelor of fine arts senior exhibition. It features the work of three graphic design students: Maddie Detviler, Kelsey Malecki and Max Kolb. The exhibition will be on view Dec. 1-19, with a closing reception from 6-7:30 p.m. Dec. 17. 

Maddie Detviler is a graphic design BFA candidate from Woodbury, Minnesota, and will exhibit her new project, What Should I Say?” The project is a multidisciplinary installation piece designed with the intent to normalize discussions about the extensive topic of grief for both those directly and indirectly affected. Inspired by her own distinctive health journey, it has been through the process of diagnosis, grief, support and healing that she has found the capacity to share her unique experiences with others. Maddie has found joy in advocating for others with similar conditions and situations, and is actively in pursuit of making others feel seen and understood through her art. 

Kelsey Malecki is a graphic design BFA candidate from Evansville, who will exhibit a line of feminist T-shirt designs that are inspired by her own shopping experiences. Malecki says, “You often see feminist clothing that seems to only express one voice, and I wanted to create a line of shirts that most people would be comfortable wearing, even men. Feminism is also something I care about and can relate to, making it a project I can relate to and understand.”

Max Kolb is a graphic design BFA candidate from Stillwater, Minnesota, who will showcase a selection of the designs he has completed for U.K.-based record label Out of Sorts. Kolb’s work with Out of Sorts has included logo and identity design, promotional materials and record covers. After graduation Kolb wants to continue doing freelance work along with finding an agency or in-house designer job.
