Current Exhibit: Celebrating 50 Years of UW-Waukesha Student Work on Paper
September 6th - November 18th, 2016
This exhibition celebrates University of Wisconsin-Waukesha student art from the last fifty years. The emphasis of this exhibition features various print media completed under the guidance of University of Wisconsin-Waukesha Art Department faculty; Ron Penkoff, who taught printmaking from 1960-1973 and Stephanie Copoulos-Selle who followed Professor Penkoff from 1976-2013. The print media featured here encompasses a variety of techniques including woodcut, engraving, etching, mezzotint, lithograph, screen-printing and monotypes. Some works were inspired by traditional art sources while others are reflections of contemporary genre. It is noteworthy how the subjects and styles have evolved over the decades, keeping pace with trends in popular culture and new media outlet resources. What is even more significant is the continued desire by students to explore and develop creative art forms utilizing processes traced back several centuries. Whether a print is created as a single image or as an edition of multiples, it is an image that has been transformed through interaction with the original concept.
