The Foster Gallery is pleased to present "Interlogues," an exhibition showcasing works made by and acquired by the faculty and staff of UW-Eau Claire’s department of art & design. The exhibition will be on display Oct. 15-Nov. 14, with an opening reception on Thursday, Oct. 14, from 6-7:30 pm. Admission to the Foster Gallery is free and open to the public.
Exhibition participants include Amanda Bulger, Wanrudee Buranakorn, Ned Gannon, Mykola Haleta, Dan Ingersoll, Jyl Kelley, Cedar Marie, Karen O’Day, Jill Olm, Helen Otterson, CV Peterson and Chris Theo. This exhibition offers a unique combination of creative research and art collections, as well as the opportunity to display the diverse working methods of the department.
Ned Gannon describes the connection between creative research and collections as, “The Art & Design Foster Gallery Committee devised a playful way for gallery-goers to gain more insights into the aesthetic interests of faculty. For this year’s faculty exhibition, each instructor was asked to submit work of their own, but also work that lives with them in the personal spaces in which they find the most comfort. By transferring some of their personal collection of creative objects into the gallery, faculty create a small window into their tastes, values and interests beyond what appears in their own artistic endeavors. It might have been fun to have students and visitors guess who owned what and who made what … maybe that’s next year."
