Senior Art Show opens at UW-Platteville

PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Three 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 created throughout their formative years in the university’s art program.

The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, will be on display in UW-Platteville’s Nohr Gallery until May 18, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. On Tuesday, April 17, there will be an opening reception in the Nohr Gallery from 5-7 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.

The show serves as a capstone for graduating art students enrolled in the Senior Show course, taught by Steve Vance, professor of art at UW-Platteville and coordinator of this year’s show, and provides students with training in how to plan and implement a gallery exhibition. Students planned the show, edited the work as a committee, selected the pieces to be displayed, learned about framing and presentation methods, prepared the gallery space and mounted the exhibition.

Students whose work is featured in this year’s show are Alisia Newport of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Haley Young of Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin; and Katie Wingert of Kent, Illinois.

“Our graduating art majors have created a diverse and visually-interesting exhibition,” said Vance. “The two-dimensional work is strong and the sculptural and ceramic works are outstanding. The students have worked very hard to put this show together and they should be very proud in representing the UW-Platteville Art Program well.”

For more information about the show, contact Vance at 608-342-1899 or vances@uwplatt.edu.
