Art students display best works in senior art exhibition
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Twelve senior art students at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville are the featured artists in the annual Senior Show, a gallery exhibition of the finest works they produced in art classes. The exhibit will be on display Monday, April 11-Friday, May 6 in the Harry and Laura Nohr Gallery. An opening reception will be held at the gallery today from 5-7 p.m. The exhibit and reception are free; all are welcome.
The artworks exhibited span a range of media and formats, including digital graphic design, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, fiber arts, sculpture and ceramics.
The show, a required course for all art majors, provides students with training in how to plan, edit, prepare and mount a gallery exhibition. The students planned the show and edited the work as a committee, with assistance from Richard Moninski, distinguished lecturer of art at UW-Platteville, who is the instructor of the show and advisor for the graduating senior group. The students then completed all of the physical display work needed in preparing the event space and mounting the exhibition.
Students whose work is represented in the exhibition are Rikki Ballweg, Jennifer Castro, Blair Chapman, Alyssa Hanson, Chelsae Hill, Haley Hurst, Anna Jenson, Katelyn Kieler, Paola Martinez, Holly Nygaard, Carley Rote and Elizabeth Schulz.
Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
The art program is a unit within the UW-Platteville Department of Performing and Visual Arts.
