VITERBO COLLEGE ART GALLERY TO HOLD SENIOR ART EXHIBIT
LA CROSSE, Wis.—A Senior Art Exhibit will be on display Jan. 26 ? Feb. 11 in the Viterbo College Art Department Gallery with an opening reception on Wednesday, Jan. 26 from 7:30-9 p.m.
The show features artwork by Viterbo art education seniors Quenten Brown, from La Crosse, and Dave Ryder, from Eau Claire.
Brown will be showing a series of pastel, oil pastel, and charcoal drawings. His work examines both the physical and psychological aspects of human relationships through compositions depicting human dramas. Ryder will be showing works of functional, stoneware pottery that includes: teapots, bowls, vases, platters, mugs, and pitchers. Much of Ryder’s recent work uses self-made earth tone glazes which interact with the texture of the surfaces, faceting, organic forms, and work that is wood fired with a salt glaze.
The reception is free and open to the public. There is no admission charge to the Gallery, which is located on the third floor of the Viterbo Fine Arts Center on the corner of Jackson and Ninth Streets. The Gallery is open during regular school hours or at other times by request.
