Art collection on display at Nohr Gallery
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Nohr Gallery invites faculty, staff, students and community members to view work from its permanent art collection in the gallery through Aug. 18. The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Tom Cabezas, manager and curator of the Nohr Gallery, said that the gallery presently has a sizable permanent collection of numerous styles, media and artists donated by various generous benefactors. Included in this year’s exhibition are prints, paintings and drawings, spanning from abstracts to Audubon in style.
“Much of the collection is utilized by the university, enriching various buildings or occasionally displayed in the Nohr Gallery,” said Cabezas. “Many of the works presented in the permanent collection were previously stored, unframed, in our archives. The works were rescued and framed with the purpose of being viewed, in the here and now, throughout campus.”
Works from the permanent collection are available for loan to university departments. Departments interested in adopting one or more items from the collection should contact the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
To contribute to the preservation and rescue of works from the archives, contact Cabezas at email@example.com. As funds are raised for the preservation and framing of art from the permanent collection, more works will become available and will be posted on the gallery’s website: www.uwplatt.edu/gallery.
