Want to enjoy some art from Madison-area artists? Then be sure to visit our new Continuing Studies Art Gallery located on the seventh floor at 21 N. Park St.
We established this gallery to provide a resource for artists to display their art in a public education environment. Featured artists are faculty and staff and their family members, students, adjunct instructors, and other friends of Continuing Studies.
There are three exhibit areas: one on each end of the main hallway, and the Dean’s conference room. Art is displayed for a two-month period. Exhibits are currently scheduled through March, 2013; you can find the schedule here.
Work by these artists can be viewed from now through the end of May:
Jan Crowley, Elkhorn, Wis.
“The human face and form has always captivated and challenged me. I have been drawing people since I was 15. I am self taught, and have appreciated the UW-Madison Continuing Studies programs as a means to help me grow and become an artist. I believe that a picture really is worth 1,000 words, and that visual images tell powerful stories.
“The images represented here are from a body of work I have been working on for several years titled ‘Unto the Least of These—a visual story of the forgotten people of Romania.’ Each image represents a person my husband and I met when we traveled to Romania as short-term missionaries.”
Bruce Moffat, Madison, Wis.
“I am a nonprofit management consultant by trade, occasional photographer in my so-called free time.…Call me anachronistic, but I am unabashedly one of those dyed-in-the-wool black-and-white photography lovers. To me the true essence of both the art and craft that is photography is the shades of gray, the contrast of light and shadow, the range of tonalities.
“Since arriving in Madison, my connection to Continuing Studies is multifaceted: I’ve been an instructor, a student, a colleague, and a brief attendee of the job search support group. This is certainly a tribute to the way one UW department can serve the community in a variety of ways.”
In September Continuing Studies will send out another call for artists who would like a spot on the exhibit schedule. You can find more details here.
