PLATTEVILLE, Wis. – The artwork of six University of Wisconsin-Platteville art faculty and instructional staff members will be on display at the UW-Platteville Art Faculty Exhibition, or Faculty Show, Tuesday, March 6 through Saturday, April 14, in the Nohr Gallery, Ullsvik Hall.

An opening reception will be held in the Nohr Gallery on Tuesday, March 6, from 5-7 p.m.

The exhibition includes a variety of artworks, including fiber installation, water color and ink on paper, camouflage printed canvas, sketches, paintings, photos and functional and fine arts ceramics.

The Faculty Show brings new, unseen and challenging work to the university. This year’s grouping includes a number of pieces that exhibit thematic and stylistic commonalities, ranging from references to our shared contemporary moment to experiments in interdisciplinary, multimedia pieces.

Featured artists include Steve Vance, professor of art; Greg Nelson, associate professor of art; Richard Moninski, distinguished lecturer of art; Carole Spelić, senior lecturer of art; Daniel O’Brien, lecturer of art; and, for the first-time, Scott Steder, lecturer of art.

“I am excited to see this show and see the various works side by side and in dialogue with each other and with the audience,” said Dr. Tyler Ostergaard, assistant professor of art history at UW-Platteville. “I hope the exhibition will allow our students and the larger Platteville community to come, see new work and hopefully see things that challenge their expectations, expand their perception or even just give them something unique to look at.”

Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-2 pm.

To request disability accommodations, please contact Tom Cabezas, manager of the Nohr Gallery, at 608-342-2787.
