Students exhibit work in Dubuque gallery tour
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — More than 50 University of Wisconsin-Platteville graphic design, studio art and art education students will exhibit their work in the “Fall into Art” gallery tour on Oct. 3-4 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Dubuque, Iowa.
The UW-Platteville exhibit will showcase more than 100 pieces that the students have created, including two- and three-dimensional art, paintings, drawings, graphic design, ceramics, sculptures, photography and more.
The event is a free, self-guided art tour of galleries in the Downtown Dubuque Cultural Corridor, which is home to commercial galleries, museums, theatres, an aquarium, more than 80 specialty shops, three dozen restaurants, working artist studio space and a variety of major art venues.
The tour will feature exhibits from Dubuque's Gallery C, Matter Creative Center, The Nash Gallery, Outside the Lines Art Gallery, The Salon Des Refuses, Studio Works, Voices from the Warehouse X Make Your Mark, Carnegie-Stout Public Library and Dubuque Museum of Art as well as off-site exhibits by UW-Platteville and Dubuque's Loras College, University of Dubuque and Clarke University.
“Preparing for the ‘Fall into Art’ gallery tour exhibition is a great learning experience for the students,” said Greg Nelson, assistant professor of art at UW-Platteville. “This is an excellent opportunity for them to prepare and show their work in a much larger community to a much broader range of people.”
